New Delhi, Sept. 13 (ANI): In a move to provide relief to the consumers living in multi-storey flats, the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) has now allowed water connections for ten individual dwelling units in a single property.
The decision would benefit ten lakh people and is aimed at bringing more consumers to DJB’s water network.
The existing “Delhi Water and Sewer (Tariff and Metering) Regulations, 2012” provisions allowed only single bulk water connection for single properties which has more than six flats.
The city has seen a rise in the multi-storey flats which doesn’t have the provision of an underground tank and would require more than six water connections.
Any such property requiring more than six individual water connections was to have an underground tank with boosting arrangement to supply water to the upper floors.
The applications of individual flat owners who installed water connections were pending with DJB for its regularization. DJB’s decision is followed by the requests for reviewing the need of this category. (ANI)
