  2. 2. ISSUES AND CHALLENGES (To be continued) • India 4 percent of global water resources but 16 percent of global population • World Bank estimates current (2011) industrial use approx. 13% of total fresh water withdrawn. Demand to grow @ 4% pa • Rampant use of water and disposal of waste water •Lack of stricter implementation of policies •Thus future demand to put pressure on availability of fresh water 2
  3. 3. ISSUES AND CHALLENGES (To be continued) • Improper water pricing one of the main reasons for inefficient use by industry • Cost of damages in polluting ground and surface water ignored in tariff determination •Lack of effective co ordination amongst regulatory bodies •Multiplicity of authorities with different mandates •MOWR ( Water resource) principal agency responsible for water in India but water pollution and Industrial water not in purview 3
  4. 4. ISSUES AND CHALLENGES (To be continued) • MOI (Industry)concerned with planning and development of water resources for Industrial use. No mandate to control or regulate water use by Industries •CGWB(Ground water Board) map ground water status. No mandate to charge for ground water •CPCB/SPCB regulate industrial water pollution and charge water cess based on the amount of waste water discharged but no mandate to control sourcing of water from various sources 4
  5. 5. EFFECT • Water conservation not a significant success •Rivers and Lakes are highly polluted •Ground water severe depletion 5
  6. 6. WATER PRICING WATER PRICING Price, to promote efficient use. Every State to establish a water tariff system Powers to collect water charges by Water User Associations Recycle and reuse of water through a properly planned tariff system Heavy under pricing to be revised 6
  7. 7. PROBABLE SOLUTION • Implementation of Aquifer policy to restrict ground water usage • Emphasis on Recycle and Reuse through regulation and incentives •Desalination a probable option for Coastal industry belt •Proper co ordination amongst Ministries and regulatory bodies • Institutions like MCCI not to stop here 7
