Minister of Town Planning and Water Supply Rauff Hakeem has requested cabinet approval to increase charges on water by 65%.

It has been reported that the Minister presented a memorandum before the cabinet yesterday.

Government sources noted that Minister Rishad Bathiudeen and Dr. Sarath Amunugama had opposed the proposal.

Minister Rauf Hakeem had noted that the water board was incurring losses as there had been no price revision since 2012.

However the final decision is to be taken by the cost of living committee.
