Chief Executive officer
Delhi Jal Board
Office No. 306,
New Delhi, Delhi - 110055,
Subject: Water Supply to Dwarka Sub-City
This further to our meeting with The Chairman, DJB, Chief Minister of Delhi, Shrimati Sheila Dikshit and further meetings held with your good self.
As you are well aware that the water supply to Dwarka is very very poor and almost on daily basis we receive umpteen numbers of calls from residents of different Sectors of Dwarka. . The Govt planned this sub-city way back 20 years now and taken due development charges. The basic supply of safe drinking water as per govt own set standard not being implemented in Dwarka till date.
In this regard we would like to draw your kind attention to our letters and two meetings on 18th October, 2012 and 29th July, 2013. We are sorry to inform you that despite the fact that Chief Minister of Delhi has accepted the transfer of water supply from DDA to DJB in the meeting held on 22/12/2009, things have not moved an inch. We would like to know the action taken by DJB in this respect and the bottlenecks specifically related to taking over of water supply from DDA.
We would also like to know the:
- Requirement of water for Dwarka as per estimation by DJB
- How much water is being provided to Dwarka and
- How much water is being diverted to IGI Airport.
The most unfortunate part is that we are not getting any response from any your officers except diverting the issue to Munak Canal.
We therefore, call upon DJB to take over the water supply of Dwarka Sub-City from DDA and ensure equal of water supply to Dwarka at the same rate as applicable to rest of Delhi.
We look forward to hearing from you at the earliest.
For and on behalf of Dwarka Forum(Regd.)
