About The Book

A study of the "Economics of Water" in Indian conditions should have been a Well recognised normal academic activity.However, not unsurprisingly a case needs to be made for the study of water. Several parts of India and fairly specified regions in South India are notorious for their water famines..In the last two decades dramatic uncertainties in the outbreak and substance of monsoons has brought home the importance of water as an economic resource.

The recurring water famines in the metropolitan towns and cities dramatists the failure to study urban water supply.This is in marked contrast with the close attention paid to problems of electricity and road transport as economic overhead sand public enterprises. Provision of adequate drinking water to all people in India, particularly to those living in rural and remote regions, is a goal whose dimensions are yet to be outlined. Even in the so called study of public enterprise water industry is conspicuous by its absence.
