With the changing face of Delhi, delivery of essential services like drinking water and sanitation to the people living in slums ought to be a policy priority for the government. However, public spending in the Eleventh Plan (2007-12) for slums seems to have been unresponsive and inadequate, leading to poor utility services governance. Using budget analyses and public expenditure tracking survey methods, this article highlights important issues that impede effective water and sanitation services delivery in the context of experiences and practices captured from two resettlement colonies in Delhi.
