The warnings are clear. India is experiencing a water crisis. A population of 1.38 billion (2020), growing at 1 % annually, is bound to demand more water, food, energy, housing, and jobs. Such growth will dilate the gap between water demand and supply, affecting daily activities.
India is known to have the largest annual agricultural water withdrawal. The Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) (Chaturvedi et al. 2020) estimates water withdrawal to reach 1058 billion cubic meters (BCM) by 2050.
