Water situation Delhi

Is anyone currently in Delhi who is able to shed light on the water situation? News outlets say there is "severe disruption" and "rationing", but it's not clear whether this is referring to drinking water or water for more general use, showering etc. I'm heading to Delhi in a couple of days and am wondering to what extent this will affect me, or whether I need to consider a change of plan. Doing without a shower would be unpleasant but bearable, but if drinking water is in short supply I might need to reconsider.

Thanks. I also contacted my hotel and they said they have "showers 24/7" though I wasn't sure if that was a general statement or specific to this situation. I did notice the media coverage was somewhat vague about all this.

Thanks, Siddarth, for the update. I was afraid I was going to be stinky for my entire Delhi trip but the hotel assures me there's no problem.
