District Magistrate (East and Shahdara districts) K. Mahesh said the water level had remained at a constant 206.05 metres from 1 p.m. till 8 p.m. At Palla, however, the level had decreased from 211.55 metres at Palla at 6 p.m. to 211.425 metres at 8 p.m.

As those in low-lying areas continued to remain in evacuation centres on higher ground, the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) said the supply of treated water would be hit due to the flood situation.

In a statement, the DJB said the power discom concerned had cut electricity to its tube wells at Palla on Monday evening, leading to water not being available for supply.

The DJB said the water supply would be available at low pressure in Alipur, Narela Mandi, Punjabi Colony, Khera Kalan, Hiranki, Jhangola, Bakhtawarpur, Bhakoli, Budhpur, Tikri Khurd, Ghoga, Sannoth, Bankner, Singhu, Singhola, Badli, Holambi Kalan and adjoining areas.
