New Delhi: In a major reshuffle at the Delhi Jal Board, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has transferred 800 employees reportedly to improve service and supply.

AAP had promised 700 litres of free water daily to each household along with a reduction by 50 per cent in power tariffs in the city.

The transfer was reportedly carried out to improve its service delivery mechanism.

The affected employees were posted at the water emergency and filling points for over three years.

Also, it is learnt that soon after the new State Government assumed power, a task force on water tankers was constituted by the DJB last week itself to study the supply and distribution constraints.

Following a survey, the task force has reportedly submitted its ground-report on the basis of which the DJB -- which presently has about 19,000 employees -- may undertake more such corrective steps.

The decision comes nearly a week after the Aam Aadmi Party-led State Government announced a provision for free supply of 666 litres to every household per day.

The AAP had during its election campaign claimed that a better management of the DJB was an answer to the city's water woes.
