Abstract:
India has the highest number of people in the world without access to safe water. The lack of availability to this basic resource causes thousands of deaths every year, mostly amongst the underprivileged sections of the rural and urban populace. This paper analyses the causation and effect of the deficiency in water supply in India. It further looks into government policies and their implementation over the years and explains where those policies fall short. Efficient methods of improving quality and availability of water used by other developing nations are explained with respect to their feasibility and viability in India. Lastly, this paper provides policy recommendations aimed at improving the access to clean water for all Indian citizens, irrespective of their social and economic standing.
