Greater Noida: Groundwater is depleting at a rate of one meter per annum in Gautam Budh Nagar district, a report prepared by the Uttar Pradesh Ground Water Department stated.

Experts had studied the rate of groundwater depletion from 2013 to 2017 in rural and urban areas of the district, which includes Noida, Greater Noida, and areas under the Yamuna Expressway. So for dealing with that now Greater Noida Authority got active and started its efforts for rainwater harvesting.

On Thursday CEO Greater Noida Authority Narendra Bhooshan conducted a meeting with all his officials for making the strict implementation of rainwater harvesting. In the meeting, the decision is taken that by next week, officials will start inspection of all the allotted sites. During this inspection, if any allottees did not have rainwater harvesting and those who have but not in working condition will be heavily fined by the authority. Even after that if the things were not found as per the law then their complication certificate will be cancelled.

Apart from this during the meeting, a strategy for revival of various ponds in the region was also discussed. Which will also help in bringing the groundwater level back to normal.

Narendra Bhooshan said “We are very serious on this issue and soon teams of Project, Property, Planning, Commercial, IT, Builder, Group Housing department will start the inspection and work on it.

PM Modi also in his first edition of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio program after assuming office, urged citizens to unite for conserving water and appealed people to make a list of methods to conserve water and share the same on social media using the hashtag ‘JanShakti4JalShakti.’
