It takes nine liters of clean water to manufacture a liter of Coke. In 2000 Coca-Cola opened a plant at Plachimada, a village in Kerala to produce 1.2m liters of coke every day. The conditional license granted by the local Panchayat authorized the use of motorized pumps But the company drilled more than six wells & illegally installed high- powered electric pumps to extract millions of liters of pure water. The level of the water table fell from 45 to 150 meters below the surface The company started dumping waste outside causing a serious health hazard. The court gave Coca-Cola a notice to cease water extraction The theft of water was not only limited to Kerala Overexploitation of groundwater soon started in Kaladera Kala Dera - Thirsting from Coca-Cola  Kala Dera is a large village outside the city of Jaipur.  Agriculture is the primary source of livelihood.  Coca-Cola started its bottling operations in Kala Dera in 2004, and within a year, the community started to notice a rapid decline in groundwater levels.
