The denizens of national capital will be able to know the timings of water supply in their area from March onwards if Delhi Jal Board complies with the orders of Central Information Commission in time-bound manner.
The transparency panel has directed the Board to post timings of water supply on its website by February 28 and keep updating it if their are any changes.
"The Commission directs the PIO to ensure that timings of water supply of all areas are displayed on the website of Delhi Jal Board. If these timings are changed the website is updated accordingly," the directive by the Commission said.
Information Commissioner Shailesh Gandhi was hearing the plea of one Narender Dutt who did not get details of water supply in his area from the Board and filed an appeal in this regard.
Gandhi held that such information should be displayed as part of mandatory proactive disclosure under section 4 of the RTI Act, which deals with important information about functions, and duties of the organisations displayed in public medium.
"The Commission directs that these timings are displayed on the website under its Section - 4 compliance before 28 February 2010," he said.
