700 litres free water daily for Delhi households

Ghaziabad, Dec 30 : The Delhi Jal Board (DJB) would provide 700 litres of free water per day to each and every household which has a regular water connection, a board member Monday said.


The decision was taken after a meeting held at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence here which was attended by 18 members of the DJB.

"Seven hundred litres of water will be given to each and every household of Delhi, who have regular connections," DJB member Sandeep Tanwar said adding that even if one point more than 700 litres is consumed, the household would need to pay the entire bill.

The cost of providing the free water would be borne by the DJB for the first three months.

The promise of 700 litres of free water to every Delhi household was made in the Aam Aadmi Party's poll manifesto.

DJB officials and members had reached Kejriwal's Kaushambi residence for the meeting as the chief minister stayed home due to ill health.
