Water Crisis In Delhi: Water crisis may deepen in Delhi, after Haryana, two other states also back down from providing water.

The Delhi Jal Board believes that its engineers worked hard to turn these plans into reality, but the neighboring states backed out for political reasons. Delhi requires about 1,200 MGD of water.

There is a possibility of deepening of the drinking water crisis in Delhi. In fact, Uttar Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh have backed out of the plan to give additional water to Delhi. Haryana is also not ready on the proposal of exchange of water with Delhi. Talks were going on since the year 2019 on the proposals related to Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. Both the states have withdrawn from these proposals about six-eight months ago.

According to the Delhi Jal Board, Uttar Pradesh had planned to provide 14 MGD of treated waste water in lieu of water. Uttar Pradesh had said it could supply 270 cusecs of Ganga water from Murad Nagar and Delhi had promised Uttar Pradesh to provide treated wastewater in the same quantity from Okhla for irrigation. After several meetings and inspections, Uttar Pradesh abandoned the idea about six months ago. Though the Center was in favor of the proposal, Uttar Pradesh rejected it. Uttar Pradesh did not give any reason for rejecting the offer.

Delhi also discussed a proposal with Haryana. Under this, water was sought from Haryana through Carrier Lined Canal (CLC) and Delhi Sub Branch (DSB) in lieu of 20 MGD of treated waste water for irrigation. Haryana has not yet agreed to this proposal. Now that seems very unlikely to happen.

Similarly, in December 2019, Himachal Pradesh had signed an MoU to sell its share of Yamuna water to Delhi for Rs 21 crore per annum. Under this (located in Yamuna Nagar district of Haryana) water was to be transported from Tajewala to Delhi. However, Haryana opposed this plan of Himachal Pradesh. Haryana had argued that its canals did not have the capacity to carry additional water from Himachal Pradesh to Delhi. Due to this Himachal Pradesh also withdrew from the agreement about six months back.

The Delhi Jal Board believes that its engineers worked hard to turn these plans into reality, but the neighboring states backed out for political reasons. Delhi requires about 1,200 MGD of water, while the Delhi Jal Board supplies about 950 MGD.
