When we consider resources as ever increasing assets escalating in cost the implication of free resources changes the concept of infrastructure.  The news to consider free water access is categorically different than Western societies. The promise on the “Decision on free water, power tariffs likely today, a busy week awaits Delhi CM Kejriwal” is a story to follow as this new system is released.

“Hours after he took the oath of office on Saturday, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had said Monday he would come up with some measures on free water, which AAP had promised within 24 hours of coming to power. As people lined up at his residence in Kaushambi, Ghaziabad with their applications, Kejriwal sought seven-10 days time to put a grievance redressal system in place.”

“Making available free water to households using 700 litres a day and setting up an anti-corruption hotline will also be on top of the to-do-list this week,” posted Hindustan Times.

The ability to deliver free water the equivalent of 184.92 gallons per day to a household changes the thinking on a critical resource.  As the energy boom is growing, water is a major commodity for health and function of energy production. Water as a free resource can be a flagship for nation building and infrastructure development.

The question is what is the drawback to free water at a cap? The use of water over the acceptable limit can be a potential detriment for a family. The strategy for free water has it perks but the plan for choke points and gaps can be the weak link in the delivery system; therefore monitoring average costs to users must be monitored.
