Intro: ‘As new technologies are evolving at a fast pace, the government should handhold industries with necessary technical support in the form of guidelines to support industries in tracking their water usage and reducing their water footprint,’ highlights Vinay Chataraju, Co-founder & Head- Business Development, Kritsnam Technologies in an interview with Souvik Goswami.

How government & industry can join hands together for efficient usage of groundwater?
Industries should move towards adopting the latest technologies for efficient use of water resources internally. There has to be a strong realization that groundwater is not an unlimited resource and has to be treated preciously.
As new technologies are evolving at a fast pace, the government should handhold industries with necessary technical support in the form of guidelines to support industries in tracking their water usage and reducing their water footprint. Reduction in water usage doesn’t happen overnight, necessary steps have to be taken to reduce the water usage organically.
Vision of Kritsnam.
Our vision is to raise the collective consciousness of our society towards sustainable usage of fresh water resources.
