Leaving the tap running when brushing your teeth will waste several litres of water. A faucet that drips once every second loses a hundred thousand \litres of water a year. Consider this!

As per NITI Aayog report released in June 2019, India is facing the worst-ever water crisis in history. Approximately 600 million people or roughly around 45 % of the population in India is facing high to severe water stress. As per the report, 21 Indian cities will run out of their main source of water i.e. groundwater by 2020. The report goes on to say that nearly 40 % of the population will have absolutely no access to drinking water by 2030 and 6 % of India’s GDP will be lost by 2050 due to the water crisis.

“So far, we understand the magnitude of the main problem of water shortage and how the whole world is getting trapped into it. Now Lets see how water crisis impacted India at worst.”
