In the last hearing the court asked Delhi’s Principal Secretary (Finance) to file the reply on Delhi Government plea seeking release of Delhi Jal Board funds. During the last hearing the court was informed by the Delhi Government’s counsel that their civil servants do not listen to the government. The court was also informed that Rs 1,927 crore is yet to be released for the DJB.
