Multan: The Water and Sanitation Agency (WASA), Multan is all geared to launch a city-wide operation against bill defaulters starting today, a news source reported. WASA bill defaulters, which include housing scheme, mill, and commercial sector establishment bill defaulters, reportedly owe PKR 180 million to the authority.
According to sources, WASA has initiated the operation to generate funds for paying departmental salaries and making bill payments. The authority decided to commence with the measure only after the final notices had been communicated to the defaulters.
As per the details shared by the WASA, the bill-defaulting housing schemes include Fida Avenue, Qasimpur Colony, Madina Colony, Muslim Town, Garden City, Punjab Cooperative Housing Scheme, Ali Park Colony, Nayab City, Green Valley, Wapda Town Phase III, Satellite Town, and Bismillah Colony. These housing developments owe the authority several hundred thousand rupees in terms of water bills and sanitation service charges.
In addition to these private housing projects, several factories are also behind on clearing their WASA bills. These include major textile mills, glass factories, private firms, and flourmills.
