Time to tackle wastewater issues on war-footing
"NITI Ayog's Composite Water Management Index June 2018 presents a very grim water situation in India. The report goes on to say that the crisis is only going to get worse and by 2030 the country's water demand is projected to be twice the available supply, implying severe water scarcity for hundreds of millions of people and an eventual approximately 6 per cent loss in the country's GDP.

In this context, the proper treatment of wastewater to enable compromise free recycling or discharge is essential to human health, agricultural productivity, and long term economic growth is the need of the hour." says Mr Anuj Bhagwati, Managing Director of A.T.E. Group, in an interview with the Indian Textile Journal. He highlights the challenges faced due to water scarcity in India and how we can effectively tackle them.
