Tata unit feels good governance heat; AAP shelves MoU signed between TPDDL and Delhi Jal Board

Taking a tough stand against the corrupt corporates, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has shelved the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) with Delhi Jal Board to launch 100 water dispensing units in JJ Clusters (slums in Delhi) and re-settlement colonies.

The sources from the state government stated that it has decided to put the agreement on hold “as it does not want to do business with a firm against which the government has initiated CAG audit,” reported a newspaper.

Earlier this year during President’s rule, Delhi Jal Board had come together with TPDDL to install reverse osmosis (RO) systems with water dispensing units in North and West Delhi. The mandate of the MoU was signed as a corporate social responsibility initiative. It aimed at providing safe and drinkable water through 100 RO plants with Any Time Water (ATW) dispensing systems in the next three years.

Selling clean water to residents in JJ clusters and re-settlement colonies does not match with the fundamentals of the Aam Aadmi Party’s vision of giving free water to meet their basic needs, said a senior official.

It is notable that the first AAP government in January 2014 had instructed for CAG audit of the finances of the three power companies: Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd., BSES Yamuna Power Ltd. and BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd.

Recently, AAP had announced to work as a team with the state government to amplify its effort to eradicate corruption. It has started to work on the blueprint and a broad strategy to tackle graft at every level.
