CM Kejriwal called an all-party meeting today – Bollywood Keeda

New Delhi , Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has called an all-party meeting at his residence this evening. A meeting will be held at 4 pm to discuss the one time settlement scheme regarding increased water bills in Delhi. This information has been given by the CMO.

Two days ago, during the Delhi budget session, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that our government will implement the One Time Settlement Scheme of Delhi Jal Board under any circumstances. Lakhs of consumers of Delhi should not worry about wrong water bills. He said that earlier Mohalla Clinic, CCTV, medicines of hospitals, Farishte Yojana and DTC pension scheme were also stopped, but we did not allow it to be stopped.

He said that with the implementation of this scheme, the bills of 90 percent of the consumers troubled by wrong bills will be waived off. Besides, by getting subsidy from Delhi Government, Jal Board will also get revenue worth crores. Despite this, officials are being threatened to stop the scheme. He appealed to the MLAs to visit the homes of 10.50 lakh families whose bills have been received incorrectly. Kejriwal is busy and will leave only after getting the bill fixed.

What is the plan?

On June 14, 2023, the Delhi Chief Minister had announced a ‘one-time settlement scheme’ for pending water bills of consumers in the national capital. It was told by the CM office that out of about 27.6 lakh consumers in Delhi, 11.7 lakh consumers have a total outstanding of Rs 5,737 crore.

The CMO had said that under the new scheme effective from August 1, the government will completely waive the pending water bills of 7 lakh consumers. Its purpose is to provide relief to those people who are struggling to pay water bills.

It is noteworthy that recently, CM Kejriwal had said in a press conference, “We are announcing a big scheme for the people of Delhi. The people of Delhi were waiting for this for many months. During the COVID-19 pandemic, meter reading was not possible for many households. There were also some cases which had to be noted by the water meters at that time.”
