As per the decision of the Jal Board (DJB), the revision was due on Jaunary 1 but Dikshit said there would no hike this year.

"Dikshit further directed the DJB to make its Revenue Management System smooth and settle issues related to billing. Dikshit also stressed upon the need of immediate resolution of Consumer Grievances and other issues arisen in the early days of Revenue Management System," an official release said.

She said consumers have a justified right to redressal of their reasonable grievances, hence, DJB must act swiftly with a sympathetic view.

"She has told DJB in plain words to put on hold hike in water tariff. This decision is, in fact, a new year gift to the consumers of DJB in the city," the statement said.

The DJB has already waived off penalty on domestic water bills up to December 31 and has allowed the consumers to make payment of their dues in two easy instalments.
