Sources of Water for a Packaged Drinking Water Plant
An ISI License holding Packaged Drinking Water Plant , can draw water from Borewell , can have Municipal water as well. River Water with a Direct Pipe-In is not allowed. Same case with Well water as there is a chance of contamination. If you have seen such a case, it would have been allowed just by exception or might be illegal. Sooner or later this can be either challenged or sued.
Sting Operations Team in Bellary , Karnatak.
Bellary is a North Karnatak state, known for its rich, affluent houses of the Minerals Business Tycoons. But such is not the case for Mineral Water ; alias, the Packaged Drinking water , what the BIS calls it. As it is , the area is very hot & drought prone. Moreover, the heat starts increasing as Summer approaches. You start to listen all water related theft stories. In a sting operation, the Bellary City Corporation found out some 142 illegal Tap Connections in the city.
Worries for illegal Packaged Drinking Water Plants
In reports ,Mr. Lad, K.C. Kondaiah, MLC it said that ..
“bulk of the water being supplied was being illegally drawn by packaged drinking water units and underlined to initiate drastic action against the guilty.”
If it’s a fact , it attracts two issues :-
- How much is the water extraction limit at Bellary. Visit cgwb site
- The illegal means , which they have said is done by an existing ISI licensed Packaged Drinking Plant or they mean the Cold Jar Plant ?
Cold Jars or Chilled Jar or Camper Unit is not legal
You might have got some kind of Water Supply License or might be “smartly” managing the authorities or nobody might have noticed you till date; but now it can become a serious issue. Your Water Sources may be as per the cgwb guidelines , but you may not be having a valid ISI License issued by the BIS. Visit this page for getting clear about the ISI.
Conversion of the existing Non-ISI Unit
Is it possible to convert an existing non-isi unit into an ISI unit ? Technically , yes; but it largely depends upon the type of unit you have. Before taking any step further , we suggest you to have a look at this special page written. Then please take advantage of our Plant Service Visit to get suggestions. But an action is important as a stitch in time, saves nine. Otherwise you can be in trouble.
