DLF Phase III residents facing water problem for months: Forced to use toilets in malls
Water problem is not new for Gurgaon people. However, the old Gurgaon people face it more than the upscale new Gurgaon residents. Thus it was a surprise to know that residents of the DLF area have been facing water problem for the past few months. The posh DLF III residents have claimed that for the past few months, they are not receiving any water.

In order to fulfill their daily basic water needs, these residents allege that they are paying heavily for  water tanks. The residents receive water for 5- 10 minutes, twice, on a daily basis. As was reported by, the water problems is so bad in these societies that sometimes they have to use the toilets in the malls.

The residents claimed that they chose the place as it was one of the nicest place to live in with all the facilities. However, since the water problems started, they are reconsidering their options. A resident said, '' Water supply has always been erratic in the area. I can't dig a borewell to get water. I have to rely on the developer for water supply.''

The residents are well aware that the water suppliers are together with the water mafia of Gurgaon, who supply the tankers and hence no one is doing anything to better the situation for the residents. A tanker cost 700 and last month a resident ordered tankers three times. It is especially difficult during the festival seasons. Durga Puja, Diwali, Karwa Chauth fall almost at the same time and people have guests over, which multiplies the problems of the water.

However, the authorities are nonchalant about the matter and deny everything. When questioned, DLF spokesperson said, ''The supply gets affected only when there is short supply from HUDA. Last night, we received less water from HUDA, as there was frequent power interruption at the HUDA supply boosting station in Sector 16.''
