New Delhi, Sep 15 (IANS) Water supply will remain affected in parts of the national capital till September 17, the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) said on Wednesday.

"It is expected that pipeline water supply will be resumed by Friday evening," it said.

The areas that will remain affected are Gopal Nagar, Lokesh Park, Mitroan village, Shiv Enclave, Najafgarh, Nirman Vihar, Gupta Market, Aggarwal Colony, Ekta Vihar, Krishna Vihar, Aradhna Enclave, Baba Haridas Nagar, Sainik Enclave, Vinobha Enclave and Extension, Saraswati Kunj, Janata Vihar and many others.
