Ranibari Youth Club has started charging money for collecting water from a local stonespout. Consumers willing to collect 20 liter water from the stonespout have to buy a ticket worth five rupees [7 US dollar cents] in advance. [...] Earlier, some consumers do not get to fetch water even after queuing up for the whole day in the stonespout due to a large number of water fetchers.
Biki Khadgi, chairman of Ranibari Youth Club told that the club has started ticket system so that the consumers could get drinking water easily. Ticket system has not only regularized water collection from the stone-spout but also provided employment to the some unemployed youth members of the club. [...] The club stated that it will repair and renovate the stone-spout with the money collected from tickets.
