DJB officials have sent several letters to the DDA in this regard in the past. However, no progress has been made in the process so far, Chadha said.

Delhi Jal Board Vice Chairman Raghav Chadha on Friday wrote to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, urging him to direct the Delhi Development Authority to allot land for constructing decentralised sewage treatment plants (DSTPs) and sewage pumping stations (SPSs).

The utility does not own land in areas where the DSTPs and the SPSs need to be installed. It had requested the Delhi government's Revenue department and the DDA to allot land for this purpose, Chadha wrote in the letter.
