Nearly half (45%) of the population in India suffers from high to severe water stress, according to NITI Aayog. 90% of the rural drinking water and 48% of the urban drinking water is supplied by groundwater which is under tremendous stress. As per the Government of India (GoI) record, around 600 million people are vulnerable to water insecurity.
