India has a clean water crisis and the government needs to take decisive action to solve it.
The government has been unable to address the issue at the state level.
The current government has taken a hands-off approach to the water supply, but the situation is not going to improve overnight.
As of this writing, there are more than 2.2 lakh people with acute drinking water-related cases in the country.
It is estimated that this is one in 10,000 people in India.
In the next three to four months, the government has to decide on a number of ways to solve the water crisis, including a plan to reduce the amount of water used and how it is stored, said Arvind Pahwa, executive director of the Centre for Science and Environment, a think tank.
In addition, the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation is also reviewing how it stores water.
A draft of the clean-water policy is likely to be unveiled on April 24.
The government has proposed the water scheme for the first time.
The plan, if approved, will allow the government to store up to 3 million tonnes of water and tap into the surplus to supply households and businesses.
However, the plan has faced opposition from several quarters.
The Delhi High Court has recently directed the government not to implement the scheme unless it meets the criteria set out in the National Green Tribunal order.
The water plan is a continuation of the government’s efforts to address problems associated with the poor water supply.
In the last six months, a number in the water sector has been taken off the market due to the poor quality of water.
This has been particularly evident with the sale of municipal wastewater.
The problem has been compounded by the shortage of available freshwater, said Rajesh Prasad, executive head of the Water and Sewage Board of India.
“The lack of water is the main reason for poor water quality in the state,” he added.
The lack of clean water has been a major issue in India, which is home to more than a billion people.
In 2014, the World Bank released a report that found that only 22 per cent of the population in India had access to safe and clean drinking water.
The report said that the state of Bihar had the worst water quality.
