The Water Adalat would be held with a bench that would have powers of the Kerala Water Board. Consumers having problems in faulty water meter reading, bills for periods without water supply, high bill because of leakages, complaints regarding dues, disputes of domestic and commercial connections or mistakes in billing are among complaints that would be taken up at the Adalat.
