The Delhi Jal Board is setting up five decentralised Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP) to treat effluent for non-potable purposes and bridge the demand and supply gap.

A magnet city in Gwalior, meant to ease Delhi's population burden, fails to live up to the hype.

Solid and liquid waste management are becoming issues of great concern in rural India. The changes in consumption patterns including that of people living in rural areas have an impact on the quantity and kind of wastes generated.

Management of solid or liquid wastes in rural areas is much easier than in urban areas due to the fact that there are no highly contaminated industrial wastes. In rural areas, most of the wastes can be safely reused for beneficial purposes with limited resources.

The word mismanagement sums up Delhi’s annual water crisis. The national capital was declared as the world’s second most populous city in the year 2014 by United Nations (UN). Delhi is home to some 25 million people and the cleavage between demand and supply for water keeps growing at a constant rate.
