There people are seen to be standing in long queues since morning till evening. Due to the long duration of standing under the hot sun, people leave there water pots in queues and wait for their turn.

Water facilities are worst in Balukhali, Tenghali and Zamtoli makeshift camps as well, due to the hilly slopes of the areas.
