Delhi's tap water fails to meet BIS test; not safe to drink -Priscilla Jebaraj
With a new investigation of Delhi tap water showing that it is not safe to drink, the Centre has announced plans to test the quality of piped drinking water in the states and release Swachh Pani rankings early next month. It is also trying to build a consensus to make quality standards for tap water a mandatory requirement.
A team from the Bureau of Indian Standards has been sent to state capitals to collect samples of tap water to see if they meet quality standards, Food and Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan told reporters on Thursday.
“We expect the report by the first week of November and will release Swachh Pani rankings to show which state is supplying safe drinking water at least in their capitals,” he said.
