Come summer and the Delhi Jal Board has to lay out an elaborate plan of taking water to areas where none is available.

Delhi gets about 560 million gallons a day from the Yamuna, 240 MGD from the Ganga, 100 MGD from groundwater sources and 30 MGD from recycling. The supply (835 MGD generated in the city’s treatment plants) however does not match the demand (1,080 MGD) and the city is short of nearly 200 MGD.
