The water crisis in Bengaluru persists as many upscale apartments and residential complexes enforce stringent regulations on water usage, leaving residents grappling with dire scarcity.

A resident from the city's Harlur locality took to social media platform X to share his distress, revealing how he abandoned plans to purchase an apartment after enduring the ordeal of paying a hefty sum only to face acute water shortages.

Citizens Movement, East Bengaluru, a citizen-led initiative on X, narrated the plight of one of its volunteers, who expressed his anguish over the lack of water. "I have never been in such a situation in my life. I didn't go to the toilet today because there is no water in my washroom," the post conveyed, highlighting the struggles faced by residents despite paying substantial rents for their accommodations.

The individual lamented the situation further, expressing disillusionment with the idea of investing in property in the area. "I was planning to buy property here. But now, I will never buy it. It's better to stay in my village than in this swanky place with no water," the post stated, reflecting the growing discontent among residents.

Subsequently, it was disclosed that the individual had opted to relocate to Delhi-NCR within the next two months, attributing the decision to Bengaluru's water crisis. "The techie from Haralur has obtained a job in Delhi and is now preparing to relocate there within the next two months," the update revealed, shedding light on the drastic measures taken by affected residents in response to the prevailing water scarcity.

Amid Karnataka's severe drought conditions exacerbated by inadequate rainfall, Bengaluru continues to grapple with water scarcity, with borewells drying up and reliance on water tankers becoming the norm for many households.

In the face of mounting pressure from tech professionals seeking remote work options to mitigate the water crisis, Karnataka's Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar addressed the issue, stating, "It’s not my job to tell companies for work from home. The situation too is not that bad as of now. Water will be given to all residents as there is enough in the reservoirs."
