In a troubling echo of the water woes plaguing Delhi, residents of Noida and Greater Noida are now grappling with a severe water crisis. A viral video circulating on social media shows the stark reality faced by the residents of Panchsheel Hynish, a high-rise residential complex in Greater Noida, where long queues form to collect water from a private tanker.

The video depicts numerous men and women standing in line with buckets, waiting for their turn to fill up. Shared on the platform X by user Sachin Gupta, the video caption read, “This video is not from Latur in Madhya Pradesh, but from the country’s most emerging city, Greater Noida (UP). The motor of the pump house of Greno Authority is not working. 1400 families of the Panchsheel Hynish Society are carrying water in buckets up to several floors.”

Since its posting on June 22, the video has garnered significant attention and sparked widespread discussion. One commenter remarked, “Today the poor guys are carrying water instead of exercising in the club. This is what is called history completing its circuit.” Another user expressed a different perspective, saying, “It was one of the main reasons I avoided living in these so-called metro cities. Earning a little but living peacefully in my small town.” A third user highlighted the need for conservation, stating, “Water should be metered and people conserve it, water likely to become scarce before vanishing.”

This water crisis is not an isolated incident. Last month, a significant water shortage affected numerous sectors in Noida, with approximately 5,000 residents of Eldeco Aamantran Society forced to rely on private water tankers for their daily needs.

In Delhi, the situation remains dire as well. Delhi Water Minister Atishi has continued her indefinite fast into its second day, protesting against the Haryana state government. In a video message from her 'Jal Satyagrah' venue in Bhogal, South Delhi, Atishi declared, “I will not eat anything till Haryana releases more water for the people in the city, 28 lakh of whom are suffering from water shortage.”
