India launches water ATMS

Punjab province is set to launch an innovation for water-short Pakistan: Solar-powered ATMs that dispense clean water when a smart card is scanned.

The two-foot-square prototype machine looks and functions like an ATM, but dispenses water instead of cash. Users are issued a card they can use to claim a daily share of water.

The project aims to install a water ATM on each of a series of water filtration plants being established in rural and urban fringe areas of Punjab province.
