Jaipur: On one hand, there is a campaign on the use of only rain water, but on the other hand no effort is being made for water harvesting. As a result, ground water has gone down considerably in all the districts of Rajasthan. But the ground water department's report has brought out an even more frightening picture. Let us know what the ground water report is.
Wastelands, dry ponds and empty dams. These are the conditions of today's Rajasthan. The way such a picture appears above the ground. The picture is similar to that under the ground, but we can't see it. According to a report of the department, ground water level in all 33 districts of Rajasthan has been completely shaken. The ground water level in the districts except Dungarpur and Banswara alone has completely crossed the danger mark. The most frightening picture of the dark zone is evident from these data.
In the last four years, 185 blocks out of 295 blocks of Rajasthan have gone to the Dark Zone. While the number of dark zones in 2013 was 164, the number has now risen to 185.Dark Zone means areas where water is getting more water from the ground, but the earth is recharging less water. Surprisingly, there is only four years of water remaining under the ground in Jhunjhunu, Dausa, Sikar and Jaipur. If ground water is not yet worked out, water will not survive in the future. That is, in four years, there will be no water in these four districts at all.
