The context:

Reuters reports that $10-$15 is the amount that wealthy residents in Delhi, India, pay for unlimited piped water each month. Many lower-income residents of the city, however, are forced to rely on trucked-in water. This water is growing increasingly expensive as drought grips the country. Some residents report paying $10 a week for their supply, and report that the water is often of poor quality.

The above article also elaborates the idea of Water Gangs and Water Wars.

In conclusion:

Water woes of India, from all the way to it’s capital city of Delhi all the way to Chennai in Southern India, are far from over. The article above demonstrates water crisis in the lawmakers’ and Prime Minister’s very own backyard. How the government will work towards alleviating these woes remains to be seen.
