The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has hiked water charges by 3.72 per cent for 2018-19.
The new rates will be applicable from June 16.
According to the new tariff, water charges applicable to domestic users, like slums, will increase from Rs 3.68 to Rs 3.82 per 1,000 litres, while that of societies and buildings will be revised from Rs 4.91 to Rs 5.09 per 1,000 litres.
Non-domestic users, like non-trading institutions, will be charged Rs 20.40, up from Rs 19.67, and commercial institutions will be charged Rs 38.25, up from Rs 36.88, per 1,000 litres.
"The hike will also help us to raise money for new water projects in and around the city," added the official.
