There was no quick response from the DJB or the Delhi administration.

Sources claim that the issue first came to light in 2019 with the allegation that Rs 20 crore collected in water bills from consumers was not deposited in the bank account of DJB.

Despite the accusations, they stated that the contract of the company involved in bill collection—which it conducted in cash and checks—was extended, they claimed.

As per the sources, the LG has ordered the Chief Secretary to file an FIR in the case against the DJB and bank officials after identifying them as the private organisations involved.
