India stares at water crisis, urgent steps needed: experts 19.4.2018 General News
As the proverbial Indian summer sets in and taps dry up across large swathes of the country, India faces an acute shortage of safe and sustainable water, specifically groundwater, a crisis that will exacerbate with factors like indiscriminate use and climate change, warn experts. The issue of water sustainability for the years to come centres around critical water sources such as reservoirs and groundwater.

The Supreme Court today took exception to the union water resources department secretary not filing an affidavit in a matter relating to the Polavaram Project in Andhra Pradesh despite its order and directed him to do so in three days.
