Dwarka and its surrounding areas are facing a tough time after Haryana reduced the supply of water to these places. According to residents of various sectors of the sub-city, the water supply has been badly affected since the last four to five days.

Several societies nowadays are dependent on water provided by tankers of Delhi Jal Board or private suppliers to fulfill their needs.

President of Surichi Apartments, Sector 10, PK Rishi told City Spidey, “The DJB is not supplying enough water nowadays and this has increased our problems. I have asked the Federation of Cooperative Group Housing Societies to discuss the matter with concerned officials.”

Rishi further said that the society's residents have written a letter requesting DJB to help them overcome the water crisis. “We will be giving the letter to DJB this week,” said Rishi.

Moreover, people in societies undergoing the water crisis have even stopped watering their plants.

Residents of societies in Sector 9 whose bore wells have been sealed, too are facing shortage of water.

President of Federation of RWAs of Sector 9 and president of Ganpati Apartments Sector 9, KS Bhati said, “We are using water provided by tankers of DJB. There is already a shortage of water in this area and our problems have multiplied since the bore-wells were sealed.”

The situation is even worse in areas like Sector 7 and Palam where water is supplied on every alternate day.

Geeta Sharma, a resident of Palam, said that water is being supplied in their area for only fifteen minutes. She said, “We are highly dependent on tube wells. The authorities must take adequate steps to improve the water supply in this area.”

City Spidey, while speaking to DJB officials, learnt that Haryana has reduced the water supply by fifteen percent. On the other hand, the demand has increased by nearly 25% due to the ongoing summer season.

Officials have suggested that people should use water judiciously until the supply becomes normal from Haryana.
