Lieutenant governor (L-G) Anil Baijal on Tuesday sought a detailed status report from the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) amid complaints of water shortage, especially in slum areas of the city, said a senior official in Raj Niwas.

The official, who did not wish to be identified, said Baijal has also spoken to Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath about supply of water to the Capital, and will also speak to Haryana chief minister M L Khattar soon.

“The L-G has been monitoring the water supply situation in the capital and sought detailed reports from the DJB and the New Delhi Municipal Council after incidents of shortage, especially in jhuggi colonies, were reported,” said the official.

Water supply management in terms of “limiting leakage, wastage as well as unequal distribution per person per day” in different localities of the city needs to be addressed at the earliest, said the official adding that the status report sought from the DJB will be followed by a “detailed time-bound action plan” to address the issues.
