      Today, cities are highly populated. Ilkal is one of the Project town, where 24 X 7 water supply project was implemented. It evolved from the limited achievements of the first structured programme for rural sanitation in India, the Central Rural Sanitation Programme, which had minimal community participation. Groundwater levels within the city also fell and brackish water began to appear even in localities which earlier had good quality groundwater sources. As the demand-supply gap widens, more groundwater is being exploited. In relative terms, a larger proportion of Class II towns depend on ground water sources to meet their water requirements.

      The utility focuses on improving its customer database, meter reading through hand-held devices, billing and bill collection under a new manager, Debashree Mukherjee, who took the helm of the utility in As of12 states were in the process of elaborating or had completed state sanitation strategies on the basis of the policy. It is interesting to know that because of migration from rural pockets to urban citiesunemployment in cities is increasing and in rural pockets it's decreasing. Much of the international debate on urban water and sanitation provision has focused on private versus public provision, but our research suggests that both private and publicly operated utilities are inclined to neglect the poorest urban dwellers.

Groundwater levels within the city also fell and brackish water began to appear even in localities which earlier had good quality groundwater sources. Therefore, it is being driven by economic compulsions where people move out for economic advancements to areas offering better job opportunities.

As a result, slum areas receive low-quality services that create a net drain on utility resources. Even so, the municipal corporation initially refused to increase tariffs. Delhi is now considered the most polluted city in the world, according to the Brookings Institute, while at least two-and-a-half million premature deaths are blamed on poor air quality across the country as a whole.

Access to Improved Water Supply Despite the expansion of water supply infrastructure, those who have access to infrastructure do not necessarily get adequate services, and the poor continue to rely on alternative sources that are often very costly to the consumer and incur hidden costs to society.

The final section lists the policy reforms that would help to enhance and consolidate the success of these efforts. As an IIED blog laments, urban sanitation has gone from being the spearhead of urban improvement a little over a century ago to a laggard today, though there are some bright spots.

This in turn would enable governmental agencies to improve sanitation standards and medical infrastructure which would in turn help improve living standards of people. The latest database of Numbeo lists three Indian cities among the top 10 cities of the world for having worst traffic conditions.

The other major resource is groundwater from the well fields in the Araniar-Kortaliyar basin and the southern coastal aquifer, and a large number of wells and tubewells spread all across the city.
