Ensure uninterrupted water, sewerage services during lockdown: DJB VC to officials

Thursday, 26 March 2020 | PTI | New Delhi

Delhi Jal Board vice-chairman Raghav Chadha on Wednesday issued directions to ensure uninterrupted water and sewerage services across the national Capital amid the 21-day lockdown imposed to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

At a meeting, Chadha directed DJB officials to ensure that supply of essential chemicals and other items required to clean water remains uninterrupted.

He asked officials to coordinate with local police officials for "unhindered movement of water tankers". The water utility has also asked its staff to strictly follow all social distancing measures. 

The DJB also decided to quickly release payment to vendors involved in day-to-day operations and maintenance of plants and Delhi Jal Board network so that they do not face any financial crunch and their service quality remains unaffected, a statement said.
