For instance, Rohini was getting water every day but we had to cut it downward to exchange days subsequent to we started supply to 80 colonies in Kirari. DDA has still not asked us concerning land pooling and for transit-oriented expansion projects, we have made it clear that DJB is in no place to augment supply from what is already being given. Guarantee the kind of superiority that the CM promised is not impossible, conveyed report, but will take longer than promised. The report also further conveyed that, DJB itself has a system of old pipelines, which are being changed. At present, regarding 200-km of lines require replacement.
