The Delhi Jal Board on Tuesday increased a combined water and sewer tariff in the city by 20 percent for consumption of more than 20,000 liters per month.
"No change in water tariff in Delhi for households using up to 20,000 liters per month for the third consecutive year. Above 20,000 liters, a 20 percent combined hike on water and sewer charges approved in Delhi Jal Board meeting," a government official tweeted.
"...still 20k liters free per family. Just Rs 28 increased per month above 20 kl. It's just 0.85 paise per day," Delhi Jal Board Vice Chairman Dinesh Mohaniya said in a tweet.
The government under its Zero billing scheme gives free water to those households where consumption is 20,000 liters or less in a month.
