Question

Give two main reasons why water scarcity occurs in India.

Solution

Two reasons why water scarcity occurs in India are:

  • After independence, India has witnessed industrialisation. The establishment of large industrial houses and the increasing number of industries has exerted tremendous pressure on the freshwater resources.
  • Increase in the number of urban centres with dense population has also exerted pressure on the water resources. Many houses and societies have independent water boring devices which have lowered the water table.
