Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The CDTA will engage consultants with requisite expertise to work closely with the executing agency as well as the local and state governments of the 4 pilot cities. The CDTA consultants are required to prepare a high quality water tariff study report covering the abovementioned areas and create an effective knowledge dissemination channel, including four (4) workshops and a final publication of the study report including among others a tool kit or handbook to define and describe the national guidelines on water tariffs to promote knowledge and experience sharing among the states in India. The proposed duration for the CDTA would be 8 months.
