Quantifying Water Usage- the NITI Aayog Way

India is a water scarce country. Preserving and conserving water is a priority to the nation. Water being a state subject under the constitution, it is the duty of the states to manage its water resources. To help states assess and manage their water resources, the National Institute for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog is developing a Composite Water Management Index.

• The index covers 28 key performance indicators (KPIs). They range from irrigation status to drinking water and source augmentation to sustainable farm-water use.

• The inputs for the index are provided by the states themselves.

• The data thus provided will be evaluated by a third party other than NITI Aayog and State concerned.

• The index will help in framing appropriate policies by the state governments for water conservation and optimally utilizing the resource for drinking, farming and industrial purposes.

• Based on the ranking from the index, the central government too is planning to allocate funds to sates with best outcomes for its centrally sponsored schemes (CSS). This will lead to competition among the states for managing their water resources well.

• The index will begin to rank states from this fiscal itself.
