Water supply in Chandigarh will be affected for three days, i.e. September 21, 23 and 25. The Punjab State Power Corporation Ltd (PSPCL) has asked the municipal corporation to shut down Kajauli Waterworks for the said dates.
Cause Of Low Water Supply
MC sources revealed that the development came in due to an urgent need for shifting overhead power lines for the widening of roads at Kharar. This task is being executed by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). According to the PSPCL communication to MC, the electricity of (PSPCL) Morinda will be shut down at Kajauli Waterworks for four hours on the said dates.

The Engineering Department of the Chandigarh MC has decided to provide morning supply as usual. Only the evening supply will be cut off.
