Mumbai, November 16: Mumbai has topped the list of cities with cleanest water in India, according to a study conducted by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). However, Delhi has featured at the very bottom of the list, which gives the capital city of India another reason to worry. Delhi is already reeling under severe air pollution as the air quality continues to be in very poor category.

Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Ram Vilas Paswan, made the information of the study public. While Mumbai topped the rankings, Delhi's water failed on all the 19 parameters. All the 11 samples collected from Delhi failed the test, reported news agency ANI.
