An ‘ATM’ that sells water

Residents of the city can now buy water from an ‘ATM’, that too at an affordable price of Rs 1 per litre.

In a first-of-its-kind for Mumbaikars, non-profit group Vandana Foundation has started ‘AQUATM’, a water vending machine. It can be operated through prepaid cards.

“The ATM can vend up to 1,000 litres per day,” the foundation said in a statement. Vandana Foundation and another non-profit group Aquakraft have come together for the water ATM. The vending machine has been set up at Mankhurd where there are water contamination problems.
