HC severely criticizes Government’s Policy of providing free water,states “Nothing should be given free” unless poor need it

May 25,2018:

On Thursday, Delhi HC criticised Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Government’s policy of providing 20 kilo litres of free water across the board for domestic use and said “nothing should be given free” unless the poor need it.

HC Bench comprising of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C. Hari Shankar stated that,”Nothing should be given free to anybody. Charge 10 paise or one paisa. Nothing should be given free, except where people really need it like the poor”.

High Court observed that providing free water to people living in the slum clusters could be accepted but not for those who could afford it.

Meanwhile, State of Haryana Government submitted before Court that it had floated tenders for repairing the Delhi Sub Branch Canal (DSBC), which also carries water to the national capital, besides the Munak canal.

Tenders would be opened in June and the work was expected to be completed in four months, the Haryana government said.

High Court has asked the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) to inform on the next date of hearing whether there was any policy to regulate ground water usage, as private companies had been draining the water table of the national capital.

Delhi High Court has listed the matter for further hearing on July 23.

High Court was hearing a plea, filed by Advocate S.B. Tripathi, who has sought direction for the DJB to provide 100 per cent sewage facility in the entire city and the Central government to provide financial assistance to the DJB for the work.

Plea states that in 2016, the DJB had told the court that only 55 per cent of the Delhi population was covered with sewage facility and there was no sewage facility available to the remaining 45 per cent.

It further states that 330 cusecs of water was supplied by Haryana through a “kutcha” canal, 50 per cent of water was being lost due to seepage and Delhi got only about 170-180 cusec water per day.
