India has entered the phase of all-round development whether it is the IT sector or agriculture sector, service sector or business, all are performing quite substantially. Now India is self-reliant, not the exporter of food grains, self-dependent and is skilled. The country is committed to fulfilling its international obligations as regards conserving its bio-diversity cutting down pollution, safeguarding human rights, giving good governance to people. All this is possible not without losing something precious. It is nothing else but the most essential thing-water. India is bearing the burden of 1.37 billion populations catering to their needs. It has just 2.4% geographical area of the world to raise its population. To supply this population in a limited geographical area with water is undoubtedly the greatest challenge for the country which consists of only 2.5% fresh water. Less than 1% of freshwater is accessible in lakes and rivers nearly 70% of it is used in the agricultural sector to feed this enormous population. The situation worsens when deforestation takes place, ignoring the need to conserve water. The situation further aggravates when its huge population starts exploiting underground water commercially.

Tackling this leviathan crisis of water, the government has decided to spend 3.5 Trillion on Har Ghar Jal Scheme in the coming 5 years. The Ministry of Jal Shakti is on the work to spread awareness among people to conserve water on a war footing. The awareness will be in full swing in water-stricken areas. The Government has launched different programmes namely ‘Namami Gange’, ‘National Water Mission’, ‘Dam Improvement and Rehabilitation Programme’ and the other. Even some states in the country have launched very effective programmes to conserve water. Mukhyamantri Jal Swavlamban Abhiyan’ by the Rajasthan Government, ‘Green Mahanadi Mission’ by Odissa are exemplaries in this regard. 

Though many schemes have been launched by the Central Government and State Governments of India, yet unless individual effort is made, the schemes would not be a complete success. Every individual has to manage water properly so as to procure water-availability to the coming generations.
