Borewell Registration in Bangalore

Name should not be empty

To check further exploitation of groundwater and also to keep a tab on those using groundwater for commercial purposes, the Department of Mines and Geology has made it mandatory for people to take permission from the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) to drill new borewells.

This apart, existing borewell users — both domestic and commercial — should register with BWSSB in the prescribed format by paying a fee.

Failure to comply can attract a penalty of up to Rs. 10,000 and/or imprisonment up to three years
