Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the possibilities of continuous water supply in New Delhi, India and nearby places; also to scrutinize/assess/recognize the role of the Municipal Corporation and Delhi Jal Board (DJB), the departments which take care of water supply and demand in the region. Design/methodology/approach – The paper takes the form of a case study and a literature review. Findings – The authors infer that there is a bright possibility of continuous water supply in the region, provided there is improvement of water supply networks, auditing of supplied water, educating people for water conservation and rain water harvesting and proper distribution by building underground reservoirs (UGR) in different areas. Originality/value – The conclusion and inferences of this research may enhance the existing literature on water supply, for the first time focusing on the Indian context, where there is no major problem in supply of water but the designed infrastructure creates shortages in the area.
