Water tanker scam: Delhi Law Minister recommends FIR against Sheila Dikshit, others 28.8.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
Delhi Law Minister Kapil Mishra on Friday urged Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to order an FIR against former chief minister Sheila Dikshit and others in connection with an alleged scam in hiring water tankers which caused a loss of Rs 400 crore to the state exchequer. Mishra, who also holds the charge of Chairman of Delhi Jal Board, had on June 19 formed a 'Fact-Finding Committee' to look into the hiring of around 385 stainless steel water tankers from private companies during the Sheila Dikshit government in 2012. The move comes after the committee submitted its report to DJB. In the report, the committee allegedly found irregularities in the tendering process, leading to a loss of Rs 400 crore for the government. "This report is self explanatory and exposes how the then DJB chairman and Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and other board members have consistently bypassed laws and rules to cause a loss of almost Rs 400 crore to Delhi Jal Board," Mishra said in his letter to Kejriwal. He requested that an ...

HC seeks objections 27.8.2015 deccanherald.com
The High Court on Thursday directed the State to file objections to a petition filed by Smaat India Private Limited seeking directions to provide water and power supply to the defluoridation units at 400 villages in five districts.

The petitioner stated that the government set up these units at the cost of Rs 70 crore on a cost-sharing basis. The State sanctioned Rs 25 crore while the company invested Rs 45 crore. The units were set up in Davangere, Mandya, Vijayapura, Tumakuru and Chitradurga districts.

The petitioner contended that the government has failed to provide water and electricity supply to these units for the past two years. As per the terms of the agreement, if the government fails to provide the facilities to run the plant, then the plant would remain with the private company. Justice Raghavendra S Chauhan directed the State government to file their objection and adjourned the hearing till Sept 2, 2015.

Arvind Kejriwal rules out privatisation of water sector 12.8.2015 Asian Age: Delhi
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday ruled out the possibility of privatising the city’s water sector following the experience in power industry, but sought more participation of private companies to improve water management in the national capital. To deal with the city’s impending water crisis, Mr Kejriwal also announced implementation of rain-water harvesting techniques on a largescale by next year and inception of recycling facilities in several areas. The Delhi chief minister said the government was ready to use technology on a large scale but ownership of water network and distribution would remain with the government. “It is responsibility of the government to ensure clean drinking water to its citizens and we will not give this responsibility to any private company.
