LAHORE - The Ministry of Science and Technology, under the patronage of Fawad Chaudhry, has launched its own mineral bottled water, Safe Drinking Water, for Rs 1/litre. However, this water is only available to government offices.

Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that the step has been taken keeping in mind the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf government’s austerity measures. This bottled water will provide a cheaper alternative to the mineral water that is currently available.

 

The minister also shared that the Pakistan Council of Research and Water Reserves has so far prepared 500 ml bottles of the water.

The water is expected to be served to officials at PM Office, President House, GHQ and Parliament House first, before being distributed to other ministries. After that, they will be available to the public. The minister aims to provide people with cheap and safe drinking water.
