What is the cause of water scarcity in Kattanbhavi, a village in Belgaum, Karnataka? Is it distance from source, lack of money or something beyond that?

What determines how we use water? Is it proximity to a source or could it be economic factors? A study in Kattanbhavi, a picturesque village in Belgaum, Karnataka, which also borders Maharashtra, gives clear insights into how and why available water sources are used in a particular manner.

Dear all,

powerful politicians Sriramulu and Santhosh Laad, MLAs, have drilled more than 300 borewells on farmers' land at Kalaghatagi, Dharwad and Belgaum districts. This has impacted the local groundwater table. At Nigadi Gram Panchayat, out of 50 drilled borewells, only 2 have water.

A single person can fight against powerful MLAs. So here I am requesting India Water Portal to take some action and suggest some action measures.

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.

The bad track record of the public sector to provide water has increasingly led to private sector participation in water supply system. The proponents of privatization state that private sector would increase efficiency, bring adequate finance and help build the infrastructure that is required to run the utilities properly in an effective manner. The anti privatisation lobby argue that the price of water will increase, will undermine the socio-cultural aspects of water and also there will be water quality issues.
