Among the mega cities in India, Bengaluru is the second highest waster of water.

Cartisan, automotive services marketplace startup, in its latest case study said “Out of the total water supply of 1,300 MLD (million litre per day), more than 40 per cent of city’s water goes to waste, out of which more than 250 MLD is lost due to leakage and household wastage while the city still faces the deficit of 150 MLD against the huge demand."

Bengaluru loses as much water as Mysuru, Mangaluru, Hubballi or Belgavi consume.

Venkat Sreeram, Founder Cartisan said among other things, water wastage during car wash is one of the common concerns.

“Have you ever imagined, how much water do you consume when washing a car? A normal water wash generally takes 10 buckets of 10 litres each, i.e. 100 litres of water on an average,” he added.

Bengaluru has 10 lakh cars and it estimated that 10 crore litres of water per week is used for car washing which is equivalent to emptying the Bellandur lake 50 times!

“To save the 14 million litre water from going to waste every day, Cartisan has begun to promote eco-friendly car wash campaign. It not only saves the water but keeps your car body in a good condition,” said Venkat Sreeram.
