Acting on an order of the National Green Tribunal, India’s environment ministry has suggested measures to regulate groundwater use in the agriculture sector.
It has recommended registering of borewells across the country and use of treated sewage for agriculture use.
The report by environment ministry-led expert panel also suggests that projects coming up in areas where groundwater is already overexploited should not get environment clearance.
