They found India Water Portal by chance. Realizing that their experience could help us, they gave their time willingly to our data projects and transformed the data into a more usable format.

Meet Ajay, a software professional in Bangalore with over 8 years work experience. He came across the India Water Portal when he searched for borewell consultants. He found the information on the site so reliable and useful that he kept coming back. On one such visit, he read about the volunteer program, which encourages non-water experts to engage with water data. After registering to be a part of it, he got involved in data projects and worked in particular, on central ground water data.
