For any new development / redevelopment on any plot, assessment of water requirement is essential. To satisfy this water requirement, HE’s NOC/Remarks are necessary which are issued based on availability of water supply network in vicinity.

HE’s NOC / Remarks can be obtained either through consultant or from MCGM’s AutoDCR portal.

Owner/Developer/Licensed Plumber can apply for HE’s NOC / Remarks through console of Architect/License Surveyor.

After filling Common Application Form (CAF) and paying necessary scrutiny fee the remarks can be obtained instantly.

The details regarding documents required to obtain HE’s NOC/Remarks such as circulars, consultants’ information, scrutiny fee structure etc. are available here (http://portal.mcgm.gov.in/irj/portal/anonymous/qlhedocs)

No, Site inspection is not necessary and HE’s NOC / remarks are auto generated after submission of online common application form.

Generally demand for residential building is worked out at 135 lpcd by considering 5 persons per flat. Norms for calculating demand are uploaded on MCGM portal which can be accessed here (http://portal.mcgm.gov.in/irj/go/km/docs/documents/MCGM%20Department%20List/EODB%20Circulars%20%26%20Notifications/12.%20Hydraulic%20Engineering%20Department/Water%20Supply%20Norms.pdf)

The City water supply infrastructure was designed on certain assumptions envisaging gravity of water supply from Master Balancing Reservoir (MBR) to Service Reservoirs (SR) and from SR to respective water supply zones. These reservoirs are located on hill tops visualizing developments on lower levels governed by gravity. Hence, localities / developments which are at higher elevation are required to be provided with system of Auxiliary Suction tank – pumping facility.

Hydro-pneumatic distribution is mandatory in cases where overhead water tank is not provided or where sufficient head (1.2M from top of terrace to bottom of OHT) is not available due to any reason. It’s a deliberate choice as in some cases it saves power, provides higher pressures and a terrace without tanks and maze of pipes.

Mumbai is having a maze of under-ground water supply tunnels. Any random and inadvertent boring / drilling activity could damage the water supply tunnels and hamper the water supply to large area for quite long time. Therefore, MCGM has demarcated 200mt from center line of water supply tunnel on either side as a Tunnel Safety Band. As a precautionary measure, boreholes / deep foundation by way of drilling / blasting is prohibited in Tunnel Safety Band. Existing bore-wells in Tunnel Safety Band are also not permitted to be deepened.

Trunk water mains (1200 mm diameter and above pipelines) feed to the entire city carrying water at high pressure and are also charged continuously. In the event of a burst / sudden breakdown, there is a likelihood of loss of life and property adjoining to these trunk mains. To avoid such situations and make them accessible for regular maintenance and repairs, 10mt distance is require from face of the building up to trunk mains.

If plot is abutting a D.P. road and has no water main or size of water main is less than 150 mm diameter, Pro Rata charges are applicable.

At present in general 5 types of water connections are being granted by the H.E. Department:

  1. Drinking Water connection for Labour purpose
  2. Water connection for Construction purpose
  3. Regular/ Permanent water connection
  4. Water connection granted on Humanitarian Grounds
  5. Other water connections granted for miscellaneous purposes
  1. Application: Facility for online submission of application for water connections is made through CAF along with online payment of scrutiny fee.
  2. Online scrutiny of application & approval by the competent authority: The proposal is scrutinized online and approved as per powers delegated.
  3. After approval by the competent authority, Permission Form (P-Form) is issued to the applicant online along with terms and conditions to be complied with before releasing of water connection. P form automatically generates the required payment for the applicant.
  4. On completion of the terms and conditions as mentioned in Permission Form (P-Form) and obtaining valid Road Permit, water connection will be released by the maintenance section of Asst. Engineer Water Works on site.
  5. Above process takes 15 days.

The list of documents as per the type of water connections is given here. (Water Services> Water applications. https://aquaptax.mcgm.gov.in/aqua/citizenportal/index.jsp

Once the water connection is made physically on site certificate u/s 270(A) of MMC Act 1888 is issued immediately to the applicant. The circular regarding issuance of said certificate is available here. http://portal.mcgm.gov.in/irj/portal/anonymous/qlEDBCP

The Sewerage project department issues remark for Street connection, Construction of Septic tank , Overflow of STP to existing Municipal Sewer and laying of sewer line on MCGM/D.P/internal road.
The common mistakes done by applicants are as follows:-

  1. Most of the applicants are applying for internal drainage remarks/approval. However, under EODB the internal drainage remarks / approval are not issued by Sewerage Project Department. This department only issues remarks as mention above.
  2. The document related to Licensed Plumber/Plumbing consultant are not uploaded. The Sewerage remarks are issued only to Licensed Plumber/Plumbing consultant. Hence, document related to Licensed Plumber/Plumbing consultant needs to be uploaded.
  3. In case of Remarks regarding Street connection and Overflow of STP to existing Municipal sewer, it is to mention that:
    1. The said remarks are system generated. Hence, the data itself has to be entered by the applicant; if the data entered by the applicant is incorrect application will not be processed.
    2. The drainage layout plan / L-section of Street connection are mandatory, if the same is not uploaded the application will not be processed.
  4. In cases other than Street connection and Overflow of STP remark, the common mistake observed as follow:
    1. All mandatory documents regards to S.P department are not uploaded in tab of Sewerage.
    2. Uploading demand note of prorata charges as Sewerage Remarks, same is incorrect.
  5. Uploading internal drainage plan as Drainage layout plan, same is incorrect. This department only deals with sewer street connection from property to MCGM network. Hence, upload Drainage layout plan showing discharge of sewage from sewer trap inside the property to MCGM network/Manhole.
