Poor response to Delhi civic body geotagging drive after glitches in app

Technical glitches have prevented many property tax payers in Delhi from geotagging their properties by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi's January 31 deadline. Only 95,000 out of the target of 1.5 million properties have been geotagged so far. Property owners have complained about glitches in the MCD's mobile app, especially for iOS users, and have called for the deadline to be extended. The MCD has acknowledged the issues and is working to resolve them. The United RWAs Joint Action has also written to the tax department to address the glitch. No decision has been made yet on extending the deadline.

Delhi Jal Board to start drive to seal illegal borewells

The Delhi Jal Board (DJB) will seal illegally operating borewells in the city, constituting 16 teams to check such operations across the city. The drive is in response to an ongoing National Green Tribunal (NGT) case regarding the illegal extraction of groundwater. The extraction of groundwater without prior permission is considered illegal under Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) regulations. The penalty for violators depends on various factors including the capacity of the pump, its diameter, and the purpose for extraction of groundwater. A report by the Central Groundwater Board (CGWB) found that 41.49% of Delhi's area is considered "over-exploited" due to high levels of groundwater extraction.
