Equity Redistribution

Equity Redistribution

This study highlights the redistribution of equity in groundwater resources over time, with the formation of irrigation companies and company bore-wells in north Gujarat. A survey of two districts in the region shows that company bore-wells play a major role in the equitable distribution of groundwater in areas where they function. However, there must be a check on the over-exploitation of groundwater from these wells. Efforts must also be made to popularise water-saving technologies for the sustainable use of groundwater.
