Improvements in Water resource management
Water availability does not depend solely on ecological conditions. The river was tamed, managed and managed here to serve the economy, people and states. However, management and exploitation (i.e., management patterns of these rivers) have created social and economic inequalities, and sometimes even dramatic ecological consequences.
Other government measures
The most important crops of India — rice, wheat and sugarcane, are the most water consuming crops. Rice which is a major export crop consumes about 3,500 liters of water for a kilogram of grain produced. Further with constant population increase and depletion in water resources water management will increasingly become more difficult in future. The picture of the same is visible in precipitating crisis of water in southern states. Water management needs to be the central focus of efforts in the agriculture sector and the environment improvement.
