Residents of various societies located near Ashirwad Chowk are facing water crisis these days. People have complained that the supply is very poor for the past one week, making things difficult for them to meet daily requirements.

General secretary of the RWA of SFS flats, Pocket 1 (Sector 5), Mahesh Gupta said his society was the worst affected due to the shortage. He added, “The Delhi Jal Board supplies water through a command tank. The water first gets supplied to Harmony Apartment (Sector 4), then Surbhi Apartments (Sector 11), Dwarkadeesh Apartment (Sector 12) and so on. Being the last society to get the supply, we are the worst affected of all.”

However, residents of societies near the command tank, too, have complained of disruption in water supply by the water board.

Formal general secretary of the RWA (Dwarkadeesh Apartment) Anjana Sinha said, “The supply is less since last one week. It is 30-40 per cent lesser than the regular supply.”

Ashirwad, Upkari Apartment, and others are too facing difficulties due to water scarcity.

One of the officials from the DJB, on the condition of anonymity, assured of taking the matter into their concern and doing the needful.
