To be equipped with GPS to keep tabs on the service

Complaints of errant tanker drivers asking for money, delay in service and several other aberrations have prompted the Delhi Jal Board to outsource the water tankers and equip them with a global positioning system to keep tabs on the service. On Tuesday the Jal Board gave its go ahead to the project, which has been awarded after four previous failed attempts. Earlier, the DJB received no bids from companies ready to take over the tanker service. DIMS was hired as consultant and asked to conduct a study on the feasibility of the project.
