India is gradually becoming a water scarce country as water resources like ponds, lakes and rivers are on a decline.
In accordance with an order of the National Green Tribunal, the Central Pollution Control Board of India has now come out with guidelines to address the dwindling health of such water bodies.
The measures suggested by pollution watchdog to improve the health of these water bodies include steps like levying a fine for those found dumping waste into water bodies and creation of a green belt around the water resources.
