His side got off to a winning start by beating South Africa on June 5.
But back home, he was fined Rs. 500 as his staff wasted drinking water to wash the cars.
Kohli's bungalow is located in Gurugram DLF Phase 1.
He was also issued a challan.
Kohli's neighbors lodge complaint
According to a report in ABP News, Kohli's neighbors lodged a complaint against him. They suggested that about half a dozen cars are parked in Kohli's house and thousands of liters of drinking water is being wasted in washing them.
Besides Kohli, several houses also issued challans
Interestingly, it is not just Kohli who has been issued a challan.
Besides him, at least 10 other houses also faced consequences as challans were issued against them.
People had filmed the water wastage and reported the same to the officials.
Temperatures have soared drastically in several parts of Northern India including NCR and Gurugram is facing a severe water issue.
Authorities should monitor water wastage closely: Our take
The report added that the Gurugram Corporation Commissioner has warned people against wasting water. It has threatened them with strict action if found guilty.
What we feel is that people should be educated properly and these things should be monitored on a regular basis.
Issuing Rs. 500 challans will not solve the problem.
Broader methods are the way forward.
