Delhi to privatise water supply within next 2 years, city to pay more than Mumbai - NewsX
Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit confirmed that the state government has decided to privatise water treatment plants in the national capital. “Privatisation of water distribution system is definitely necessary in Delhi. We want to replicate the same model in Delhi Jal Board that we have used in the privatisation of power distribution,” said Dikshit. With this move water in the national capital is going to be costlier.
The Delhites are likely to pay nine times more than Mumbaikars for water. For the same amount of water, Mumbaikars will pay Rs 160 per month while their Delhi counterparts will pay a hefty Rs 960 a month.
