Besides rising mercury level and surging temperature, improper timings of water supply has made life more miserable for them.

"There is no proper timings for the water supply. Sometimes it came at 1:00 a.m.,sometime at 2:00 or 3:00 a.m. or sometimes even we don't get water at all. But we will have to wake up the whole night for water," said Saraswati Devi, a resident.

Residents have to fill water till late night and leave for the work place next morning. This has led to many physical problems.

"We are suffering from various ailments due to this. There is no time for rest due to which we are suffering from various problems, " said Mukesh Khalate, another resident.

But, city mayor said that the water supply condition would improve once the 'Project Uday', a project aimed at improving city's water supply and sanitation, would be completed.

"We have started a special project named 'Project Uday' which is in its final phase. Once the project is over, the problem would be solved. We can call this period as a transition period," said Vivek Narain Shejwalkar, Mayor of Gwalior.(ANI)
