The order, which was issued on Thursday July 18, had directed to put only half-filled water glasses so nobody can waste water. 


Further the order read: 

It has been directed by the Assembly Speaker that initially half-filled glasses will be in the state Secretariat. It is often seen that people do not drink the entire water from the glass.

Though this will be the new trend in the UP Secretariat and all its departments, it is believed that if anyone will require more water, he or she will be provided more, without any disparity. 


The move will be implemented within the Secretariat premise only.
