Water board to study Delhi’s free scheme

With the state government gearing up to fulfill its free water promise — made during the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) polls — a team of senior administrators from the HMWS&SB will soon visit Delhi to study the feasibility of this scheme.

The Arvind Kejriwal government is implementing the free water scheme in the national capital by sprucing up the billing system and other logistics to generate revenue for the Delhi Jal Board (DJB). The TRS government is now working on the modalities to provide free water to those who consume 20,000 litres every month in the state capital within a few days.

“It’s a marathon exercise to implement free water scheme in the GHMC and its peripheral areas. We are expecting a GO in a day or two. MA&UD conducted a series of meetings with HMWS&SB officials to frame guidelines for the eligible consumers,” water board sources told.
