The Urban Development and Housing (UDH) department has issued an order after making it a mandatory provision in the building bylaws. Provision is not meant for wastewater from toilets.
It will be mandatory to have a dual flush system in bigger plots of same size. The move aims to conserve water as the larger lever is to flush out around six to nine litre of water, whereas the smaller lever is to flush out around three to 4.5 litre.
The department has also made a mandatory provision for constructing rainwater harvesting structure for houses up to or above the size of 225 square metre.
The new provision has been laid, however, in absence of monitoring rainwater harvesting were not constructed in the houses till date.
The Jaipur Development Authority’s (JDA) guidelines on rainwater harvesting facilities in houses seem to be only on paper. In past residents have refused to follow norms, the objective of tapping rainwater during this monsoon always remained distant dream.
