In most of the older societies there is one / two common meter for water supply to the various flats / shops / bungalows etc. Hence they are required to collect the "Water Charges" from its members.

Society can accordingly amend its Bye-Laws, to change the criteria for levy of water charges to it's members.
Now-a-days most of the new societies are installing individual water meter to avoid any confrontation with the members and just collect the "Water Charges" equally for the common services like Garden, Car washing, Lobby /Staircase washing, Fire-tanks, Rain-dance showers, Swimming pool etc. which perhaps is the best way to handle such issues.
