Bhubaneswar have failed to comply with the requirements of IS 10500:2012

Bhubaneswar:17/11/19: Odisha’s capital city, Bhubaneswar has secured the second position and tied with Hyderabad in the latest survey conducted by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

Union Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Ram Vilas Paswan, released the report on Saturday.

In Hyderabad, Bhubaneswar, and Ranchi, one sample each failed to pass Indian standards. Of the 10 samples that were collected, five failed in Raipur, six in Amravati and nine in Shimla.

Mumbai’s tap water is the best among 21 major Indian metro cities, a study prepared by the Centre showed on Saturday. The study showed that all 10 samples collected from Mumbai complied with the standards.

None of the samples drawn from 13 of the state capitals – Chandigarh, Thiruvananthapuram, Patna, Bhopal, Guwahati, Bengaluru, Gandhinagar, Lucknow, Jammu, Jaipur, Dehradun, Chennai and Kolkata – complied with the requirements. The Centre decided to study the quality of piped drinking water being supplied in the city in view of the objectives of the Prime Minister’s Jal Jeevan Mission.

The ministry said that the first phase of testing included drawing water samples from Delhi, and the second included testing the tap water in 20 state capitals.

Most of the samples from almost all cities have failed to comply with the requirements of IS 10500:2012 in one or more parameters. Only samples drawn from Mumbai were found fit on all the parameters. 3/4
