Abstract:
The finding of the study reveals many facts about the drinking water scenario across the Eastern and North-Eastern states of India. Data taken from the Census for both 2001 and 2011, shows a much distinct variation where almost all the districts of all the state has made a good progress in safe drinking water than the previous year. Geographically, two regions vary with one another, so the sources of drinking water used in this region also vary. The two contrasting regions of India, namely Eastern and North Eastern region have been covered by the mighty Brahmaputra and Ganga River which feeds the whole region and having the geological rock formation from pre- Cambrian to recent Pleistocene. Interestingly enough one region is situated on the Himalayas and the other on the floodplains, one region receives high rainfall almost throughout the year except some dry months and another receives high rainfall only during monsoon season. One region have a good coverage of safe drinking water and the other does not have, one region has a greater use of the spring water, which is meant to be a boon and for the other this proves to be a bane if taken up for the consumption.
