Delhi Jal Board to prepare ‘Water Data Bank’
Delhi Jal Board Vice Chairman Saurabh Bhardwaj held an important meeting with MLAs from various constituencies at the DJB headquarters to discuss the Summer Action Plan to ensure adequate water supply across the city.

All the senior officials of the Delhi Jal Board were also present at the meeting.
Bhardwaj ordered the officials to complete all the works related to the Summer Action Plan within the stipulated time to ensure better water supply to the residents of Delhi during the summer season.
The Delhi Jal Board has prepared a data bank related to district-level water supply and demand in each assembly constituency. This will help in the formulation of the Summer Action Plan for the summer season. Information on the demand and supply of water from different neighbourhoods has been collected in the water data bank. The water data has identified areas in each assembly that require water supply improvements during the summers.
