DJB to form task force for water tanker services

The Delhi Jal Board, which supplies drinkable water across Delhi, is now concentrating on the areas where piped water is not available.

A DJB official on Saturday said the department has constituted a task force to monitor its tanker services. It is understood that the decision came following Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s suggestions to the DJB CEO for a crack down on water mafias.

“A task force has been constituted to inspect the workings of the tanker services in DJB and take necessary action wherever required. The members of the unit are carrying out inspection to audit the tankers services at field level. The force has been directed to give its report by January 6,” said a DJB spokesperson.

Additional CEO DJB Nandini Paliwal, four superintending engineers, one executive engineer and one deputy director (enforcement) are the members of the task force.
At a meeting in DJB headquarters Varunalaya, CEO Vijay Kumar suggested the babus to change their habits.

“The tanker utilisation is to be personally monitored by executive engineers. The executive engineers must check at the delivery end of the tanker services by obtaining direct feedback from the consumers,” Kumar said.

Kumar, who recently replace Debashree Mukherji as the CEO Delhi, had a series
of meetings with CM on the issue of water crisis. Kumar directed all officers to closely supervise and monitor the functioning of the DJB. He also asked officials to ensure crackdown on water mafias.
