c. Non-revenue water (NRW) baseline surveys through comparison of inflows into the DMA and monitoring using electronic bulk flow meters and meters at consumer points.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Delhi Water Supply Improvement Investment Program, in line with the ADB's water operational plan, will improve the performance of the existing water supply services to 2.6 million people residing in North East Delhi and improve the management capacity of the Delhi Jal Board (DJB), the service utility responsible for water supply and sanitation services in the National Capital Territory of Delhi (NCTD) covering about 18.85 million people.
