INDUSTRIES: Boost to water intensive industries (beverages-mineral water, textile leather) has lead to the over consumption of water and as consequence one gain the decrease of the water level.

MEASURES TO CHECK GROUND WATER EXPLOITATION AND RECHARGE AQUAFIERS: Rain water harvesting, proper infrastructure keeping the provision of percolation of water into the ground.

DRIP AND SPRINKLE AGRICATION: This will help in increasing the production at less input.
