July 7, Kathmandu. Kathmandu Upatyaka Khanepani Limited (KUKL) has stopped the distribution of drinking water through tankers.

Chief Engineer of the Tanker Branch Shankar Thapa informed that the distribution of drinking water in other areas besides the hospital has been stopped for some time due to the increase in the price of petroleum products.

Thapa told online news, “Now the price of fuel has skyrocketed. The budget allocated earlier was not enough. The shareholders are yet to pay Rs 18 to 20 lakh in June. That is why Sajha has stopped giving fuel now. ‘

According to Thapa, the tanker branch of KUKL has been distributing 80 to 90 tankers daily in dry season and 50 to 60 tankers in other seasons.

According to Thapa, KUKL had entered into an agreement with a common petrol pump to refuel the drinking water tanker. However, he said that the service had to be cut due to non-payment of fuel due to lack of budget.

Thapa said that the distribution of drinking water in the hospital has been kept regular keeping in mind the humanitarian sensitivities.

KUKL has been distributing drinking water to government, public sector, private sector and citizens.
