The Aam Aadmi Party government has put on hold the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) with Delhi Jal Board to set up 100 water dispensing units in JJ Clusters and re-settlement colonies.

The mandate of the MoU, signed during the President’s rule earlier this year as a corporate social responsibility initiative, was to provide safe and potable water through 100 RO plants with ATW (Any Time Water) dispensing systems in the next three years.

The Arvind Kejriwal government, sources said, has however decided to put the agreement on hold “as it does not want to do business with a firm against which the government has initiated CAG audit”.

A senior official, in the know of the development, said selling potable water to residents in JJ clusters and re-settlement colonies also does not go along with the principle of the Aam Aadmi Party’s vision of giving free water to meet their basic needs.
