In many parts of the country, people have to travel miles to collect water as they lack tap water connections. A major reason for the grave situation is the ineffective management of water resources. However, to overcome such challenges, the Ministry of Jal  Shakti, the Goverment of India, is taking various measures to resolve water woes in India. Addressing such moves, Elets Technomedia Pvt Ltd in association with the Ministry fo Jal Shakti organised the 2nd National Water & Sanitation Innovation Summit 2021.
