NEW DELHI: Jal shakti via salt water. With the prime minister making countrywide sufficient clean water supply by 2024 a top priority, and water shortage in major urban centres grabbing headlines, Niti Aayog is working on a plan to exploit India’s vast coastline and its marine waters by desalinating sea water and supplying it to population centres via a network of pipelines.

The plan is to set up floating desalination plants in marine waters under India’s command or set up plants along the country’s 7,800-km coastline. Under international law, territorial sea of a sovereign state extends to 12 nautical miles from its coastline and the maritime exclusive economic zone (EEZ) can be up to 200 nautical miles. India’s maritime EEZ is estimated to be 1.63 million square km. Niti Aayog’s plan is also energy efficient, as it seeks to use solar energy or ocean energy for the project


They should make RWH mandatory in every city first. Maybe even that won't be enough.

The myth :eek: of water scarcity in India was shattered a few weeks ago, when the Central Water Commission (CWC) finally released a report that was kept under wraps for some time

The recently-released report confirms the estimates that had been made by the CWC all along – but like most other reports, these, too, were seriously disputed by the Niti Aayog (and even the Planning Commission). It would appear that stories about water scarcity could spawn several water-related businesses (including desalination, which we shall cover later) that would suit several vested interests.

The investments will be made in the various verticals such as pipes, EPC, water treatment pumps and valves, cement, among others, according to the report.

"Our study of sample projects in water and sanitation and interactions with water-related policy experts indicate per capita investment spending could range around Rs 8,000-9,000 for providing piped water access. This would amount to the spending of at least Rs 5.6 trillion-6.3 trillion over FY20-25, and would be almost double of the spending on water and sanitation over FY14-19," the report said.

Heavy flooding in Assam as the Brahmaputra floods yet again. Somehow we are unable to take up a great civil engineering project to efficiently store and direct all these flood waters to where its needed.
