Published on

The NIFT campus used to require 15 water tankers per day. After implementing rooftop rain water harvesting to three working borewells and to one abandoned bore hole in July-2011, the water tankers supply reduced to 8 tankers from 15 per day and at present to Zero. The cost incurred for implementing was Rs 5 lakhs and the revenue saved is Rs 30 lakhs per year with almost zero maintenance required.
