“It is felt that apart from the issue of supply of water, its management and distribution in terms of limiting leakage and wastage, as also addressing the issue of unequal distribution per person per day in different localities needs to be addressed at the earliest,” a source said.

In this regard, the source added, Mr. Baijal has sought a comprehensive status report from the DJB that will be followed by a detailed time-bound action plan over the coming days.
