@ Hemant and MPS Ramani can you state the section ( rule or the clause ) of the BMC act where it mentions putting up a loft tank for piped water supply is illegal .
@ WCP using section 381-A of the BMC act is completely out of context to what the author has asked as you are refering to laws laid out by the britishers which has not be changed as of date .Today we are talking about piped water supply .
@ Ashok you are at liberty to install 3-4 waters tanks inside your flat in the absence of any regulation that has not yet been laid down for what you do inside your flat . Its better to move with the tide .
There is no hard and fast rule as of date with reference to fitment of loft tanks in your flats in pune and the society has no right or authority to intimate you for removal of the same as they are neither the governing body for rules as of date which had not yet been laid down by the PMC .
The PMC just states about storage capacity ( Maybe Minimum regulation to be maintained ) and has neither stated the maximum storage that can be maintained. In the absence of a regulation Neither can a complaint be made since as of date there has been no amendment ,they do not even attract penal provisions under IPC section's nor CRPC sections in order to be fined or imprisioned .
Just a glance at the Rules or i should term it as regulations that have been laid out for storage capacity as per PMC
