Ratlam District

Toxic industrial waste has polluted groundwater in Ratlam. Residents wait for action from authorities.

A resident of Bajankheda village in Ratlam district of Madhya Pradesh, Sitabai Tindor shows her pot full of water to us. A strange red, the water looks unusual. “We have been using this red water for domestic use for the last two decades. Industries in Ratlam has spoilt our land and water. The government has not provided us with any alternatives. For industrial misdeeds, why should we suffer?” asks a visibly distraught Sitabai.

I need help in raising awareness to save a Govt. owned well - Khasra No. 106/1 located at Ratlam, Viriyakhedi in Madhya Pradesh. I have been campaigning for the welfare of the well over the past two years as people are using the live well as a garbage dump. I have tried to raise the issue with the concerned authorities multiple times to no avail. The dumping of garbage has been stopped but no action taken to clean the well and render it safe for use. The fencing around the well is also damaged and causes accidents to the passer by.
