She has been dwelling in the dark Rajivnagar shanty for the last 40 years, but saving the free water better than the government's plan propagated through Jal Sanchay programme (water harvesting). Zarina Ghori has been using rainwater since last two years. The family has installed a roof rainwater harvesting system, and their yearly water need is met by the rain. The family have saved time and money by the simple mechanism of installing a water pipe. They have built an underground tank beneath their room. The tank is seven-feet-deep and ten-feet-wide.

Jaipur: Save water in a whole new way 4.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
To conserve rainwater in the state, now it has been decided to make a rooftop rainwater harvesting system in the police stations. Public Works Department (PWD) has notified a large number of police stations in the city namely Brahmpuri, Murlipura, Jhotwara, Harmaada, Malviya Nagar etc. Not only in the police stations, but also in police quarters the work of making the rooftop rainwater harvesting structures will be done. The work will begin in May and is expected to be completed by the time rains hit the city. “Attempts are being made to complete the work before rains so that the benefit can be taken,” said an engineer of PWD while speaking to DNA. Most of the police stations of Jaipur are of old construction wherein no method of water conservation has been put up. As such, a lot of rainwater gets wasted in absence of harvesting structure and the opportunity to restore the rainwater is lost. The campuses are large and have a big roof which can be put to use by making rooftop rainwater harvesting system. ...
