Residents of Khandwa in Madhya Pradesh, resist public private partnership in their water supply project- A press release by Manthan Adhyayan Kendra
With no single example across the world to cite for successful model of water privatisation, the irony remains that it continues to grow in developing countries. India is witnessing a range of private sector participation in various water schemes, these come under different forms and shapes but the motive remains the same- make profit out water.
Almost all privatisation endeavor in water sector has met with obstacles, Khandwa is no exception! The teething problem of the project doesn't appear to settle as the rising discontent and resistance among people continues to grow.

Increasing groundwater dependency and declining urban water quality – A comparative analysis of four South Indian cities
The quality of water and the dependency on groundwater in four South Indian cities Amita Bhaduri posted 11 years 5 months ago

This paper by the Institute of Social and Economic Change (ISEC) examines the extent of groundwater dependency and quality status in four South Indian cities viz., Hubli, Dharwad, Belgaum and Kolar cities. Widespread water shortage problems have resulted in increased dependency on groundwater with tapping the resources to unsustainable levels. In Karnataka, out of 208 urban local bodies that come under Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Drainage Board, 41 depend on groundwater.

Derivation of Geomorphological Instantaneous Unit Hydrographs for small catchments in hard rock regions - A research report by National Institute of Hydrology
In this study, Clark model parameters to geomorphological characteristics has been used to develop Geomorphological Instantaneous Unit Hydrographs for two hard rock catchments. Rama Mani posted 11 years 6 months ago

In the study, the methodology developed at the National Institute of Hydrology to relate Clark model parameters to geomorphological characteristics has been used to develop unit hydrograph for two hard rock catchments, Barchi nala and Malaprabha up to Khanapur. This model has already been successfully implemented for simulation of flood events in small catchments of Upper Narmada and Kolar sub-basin of Narmada river as well as the Tapi sub-zone.
