East Rajasthan Uplands

Hello,

I am a student currently studying about the water crisis in Rajasthan. I found this article (https://www.indiawaterportal.org/sites/indiawaterportal.org/files/bhilwara_grndwater.pdf) on your website and found it very informative. I would like to know the source of this information as this would be very valuable and helpful to me.

Regards,

Shubha Yadav
