After the increase in the price of electricity, the price of water has also increased. 

Tk 11.57 per thousand liters of residential water supplied by Dhaka Wasa has been increased by Tk 14.46 and Tk 37.4 per thousand liters of commercial water has been increased by Tk 40. 

The Chattogram WASA has fixed the Tk 9.92 per thousand liters of residential water to Tk 12.40 and Tk 27.56 per thousand liters of commercial water has been fixed at Tk 30.30.  

The price of water was increased on Wednesday by the office order signed by Mohammad Said-ur-Rahman, deputy secretary of the local government department. 

The price will be effective from April 1.

WASA authorities say a large part of the cost of running pumps goes to electricity. The decision to increase the water price has taken as the electricity and gas prices were increased for running pumps.
