The Delhi Jal Board (DJB) has been directed by a consumer forum here to pay Rs 5,000 to one of its customers for issuing a bill without ascertaining the actual water consumption.

The North East District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum observed that DJB had issued the bill without verifying if there was a meter installed and if installed, what was the reading on it.

Such order was required to control the DJB’s dictotarial working. Such orders are also required in the case of private electric companies.
