Residents of Manikonda are facing a severe water crisis, with skyrocketing prices for water tankers amid decreasing water resources.

Despite the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) offering the same quantity of water for a fraction of the cost, residents are forced to shell out exorbitant amounts for private tankers.

Complaints have arisen regarding the delayed delivery of HMWSSB water tankers, with residents alleging that bookings often result in a wait of two to three days before water is supplied. This delay exacerbates the already dire situation, leaving residents grappling with water scarcity.
