About the Seminar

Symbiosis Law School (SLS) Hyderabad is organising a National Seminar on Ground Water Management Law on 15th February 2019.

India is one of the world’s biggest groundwater consumer. The usage of groundwater has drastically increased over the last few decades in India. Groundwater is the source of about 80% of drinking water needs in India and is the backbone for India’s food and drinking water security.

Many parts of India are not only reporting quantitative depletion of the groundwater level but also severe water quality problems leading to drinking water vulnerability. Some of the critical issues include the arsenic contamination in the Ganga basin, higher levels of fluoride in many states and salinity in coastal areas.

In order to address various issues related to groundwater, keeping in view the climatic change, there is a need to prepare a comprehensive road map with identified strategies for scientific and sustainable management of the available groundwater resources in the country so as to avert the looming water crisis. It is the need of the hour that the Indian groundwater law is reconceived around a new set of principles and priorities. Therefore, an effort is made through this seminar to provide a platform to encourage academic discussion and debate that will yield fruitful results in addressing the current problems.
