Water demand in India in 2010-2050 by sector
Over the coming years, the water requirement across all the sectors will likely increase due to the growing population. There was a significant imbalance between the water demand and water resource availability, thereby causing water scarcity. With the rising population and industrialization, it was expected that there would be an increase in the amount of sewage and industrial waste being generated. However, the country lacked the capacity to treat the current waste.
