In the wake of the severe water crisis in Maharashtra, UrbanClap, India’s largest services martplace has come up with a unique solution that will help to minimize the wastage of water in households across Mumbai.

Starting from Friday, April 15, the company will invite residents of the city to take a simple step towards reducing water wastage in their homes- by fixing all the leaking water taps and pipes in their homes, for free. The cost of this particular service will be borne by the company.

Speaking on the initiative, Abhiraj Bhal, Co-founder UrbanClap, said, “One leaky tap results in approximately 20,000 litres of water being wasted in a year. When the Maharashtra CM announced that 900 million litres of water are being wasted each day in Mumbai, we wanted to do our bit to help conserve water. That’s why we’ve launched this initiative where users can place a request on our app, and we’ll send our professionals to their homes and repair all leaking taps at no cost.”

Those who wish to avail of this service can log on to the app, place a request for Save Water Mumbai, and they will be visited by trained plumbers from UrbanClap who will fix the leaking taps in the house. The activity will run for a week, until Friday, April 22nd, keeping the convenience of the customers in mind.
