DJB to withdraw water connections to bottling plants

New Delhi, Feb 27 (IANS) To stop the commercial use of water and make it available to consumers, the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) on Wednesday decided to withdraw water connections to bottling plants, cooling plants and for selling or packaging of water in jars, cans, bottles and others.

“Wherever the water is available through water connections in such units, it is directed to disconnect it from the ferrule and where there is borewell or groundwater source in such units, it is directed to immediately write to the area SDM to seal such borewells,” the DJB said in a statement.

The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who also heads the DJB.

The statement also said that it would recommend to the MCDs that no license should be issued for these units.
