Tags: News
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.

"The ATM can vend up to 1,000 litres per day... The water from AQUATM will be available to consumers at the price of Re 1 per litre," 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.

It can be operated through prepaid cards.
