Hi friends. I accepts all the saying and ideas.

My suggestion is to nationalize the water resources. In south India it has no water scarcity but in other part it has more scarcity. Backbone of India is agriculture. It must be developed. It is necessary of water. We have to develop our nation with more technology to over come the happening of floods due water resources nationalization.

Hi friends,

I read all of your comments pro and against the subject in issue. Am of the strong view, that, water resources should be invariably nationalized.

But, though this is a public issue, the selfish politicians make it a political issue, posing unnecessary and unwanted problems, as they are not interested in the welfare of the country, rather interested in posing problem for their political gains. Added to that, All the lakes and ponds both in villages and cities in our country have been stealthily occupied by unruly people, and they even obtained pastas from government, using their political influence, though, it is very well known to the concerned officials, that, occupying and obtaining pattas over tank bed lands are prohibited under board standing orders, and our courts in various pronouncements time and again ruled that, grant of patta in respect of tank bed lands are prohibited in law and is illegal. Moreover, in every state, there are major and minor irrigation department, to look after this subject, but, they are doing nothing in this regard, and they are drawing their salaries without any work or strain, and they are supported by politicians and land grabbers.

So, the government must endeavor to resume all these lands from the so called grabbers, their pattas be cancelled, and nationalize all the water resources (not projects alone) from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and appoint expert special officers for the judicious and fair distribution of water, to the needy areas, so that, whole of India will not suffer from water problem. If this is done. So, we will be giving real meaning to the song: "vande Mataram. Sasha Samalam Mataram".

Let us keep aside the advantages and discuss the legal merit of the case for a better understanding on right to water resource. Like any other natural resource, water is available under the soil surface and it is a movable property without any state boundaries. Like any other natural resource water can also be nationalised on the legal merits. One must file a petition in the Supreme Court on this regard.

Hi Friends,

Our country is purely on agricultural dependent. So nationalization of water is very much important. In our country around 70% of rain water will goes into sea every year because of our poor infrastructure. We have to construct many dams and reservoirs across the country to keep the flood and rain water in maximum levels. Also interlinking of all revers is must, so that we can divert the flood water in other states where this water is very much required for agriculture and drinking etc. In many cities so many natural lakes and ponds are occupied by the local builders for illegal constructions this must be stopped immediately and should be punished strongly who ever the person might be. Strong water regulatory body should be formed and government should give more importance to our farmer brothers who is providing food to us for living.

Dear friends, I agree with all of you. Today scarcity of natural resources happened due to our negligence. Water resources also one of natural resources. If water resources are nationalized.

Then government can control water resources properly. Agriculture, industries need more water, but we want agricultural development so water resources must be allocated more to the agricultural purpose. In our country more people depends on agriculture but today due to scarcity of water they turned their life to urbanized, like this only it goes on then we face scarcity of food also.

So, it is the time to take care of water resources properly, it is nationalized or not every person responsible to take care of water resources.

Thanking you.

Hi friends, according to me water resources must be nationalized, as it can be felt and also said by many friends that some states are abundant in water resources while some are scarce in water resources. So, nationalization of water will lead to equal availability of resources to many states. This will solve many conflicts that occur between various states because of water resources. This will provide water at the required quantity to each and every field that will increase the cultivation and hence will make INDIA a developed nation.

Though, this will also leads to corruption but problem of corruption can be solved easily, but the advantages provided by nationalization of water cannot be obtained alternatively.

Hence, water resources must be nationalized.

Hi friends,

I support linking of water resources throughout the country. India's economy is based on agriculture and for which water is important part. Interlinking of water resources will provide water to farmers of country and it will enhance our agricultural production. It will also reduce scarcity of water in many parts of our country.

But I think center govt should not make a unique body for it, because it may lead to delay and corruption in managing such a big project. But if all nearby state will co-operate among themselves for linking of water bodies, making small small controlling bodies for nearby states depending upon distribution clauses then it may reduce corruption, delay, political disturbances etc between state and center.

Hi friends.

I support the topic. The water resources must be nationalized.

There are many advantages.

1. Water resources will be used effectively and reduction in wastage of water.

2. The problem of disputes between the states will be avoided to maximum extent.

3. Since the water resources are under the control of national government it will take prevention on supply of water to farmers.

4. Scarcity problem will be reduced.

5. Building of dams will be reduced and hence that amount must be used for other purpose.

There are disadvantages to.

Because of this there may be corruption, many political issues may arise.

In my point of view they can be reduced by aligning one department separately and that department must be given superior powers.

Let us consider as example that one state requires more amount of water at one season and other state at other season, . In this case the department will take care and produce water as per requirements.

According to me nationalization of water resources has its own pros and cons.

The brighter side promises reduced inter -state conflicts, lower exploitation by individual states, higher portion of water available to farmers and greater monetary support allocation by the Central Government. Further if water is privatized in high water consuming sectors of metro- cities it would reduce overuse of water. On the other end it could lead to unfairly distribution of water by the government. Therefore it is difficult to come to a unanimous conclusion.

There must be strict rule over the use of water if this is not done early then world is going to face a great problem. Water must be considered as a nationalised resource so that people can give value to it.

Hi Friends in my point of view nationalization of rivers should be done by all means.

It not only helps the farmers and the middle class it also helps the revenue of our country, the more the farmers grow, the less we are dependent on other countries.

Anyways in the northern side people are vastly getting affected by floods and most of the water goes to sea without proper usage. Even though it increases corruption but lakhs and lakhs of farmers won't die every year because of droughts.

The only solution is govt should start implementing the project in one side and slowly the development will continue to other states.

From my point of view, In current scenario, implementing a thing is very difficult and when it seems like big project it will be very much difficult to implement and to monitor. Nationalization of water resources is important but in our case, water sharing between two states itself a big problem and not made possible by the Government.

It may not be possible to connect from north to south, but a separate body can look after the water resources in their own state and all possible measures can be taken to connect the nearby states which is having high flow in water resources. Through that, it can became nationalized and also easy to implement the same with the cooperation of the states. All the natural resources been restricted to specific area in the intention to easy managing and understanding of the problems not to stop to the whole mankind who is from other states and areas.

Nationalizing is an important task and before that we should take measures to stop the water being sent to sea. It will not happened over night but all the governments should see to that issue also.

All possible measures should be implemented as soon as possible with less political interference and its our duty to save our natural resources for our future generation. It should not stop with discussion alone everyone must think of our upcoming generation too.

Many scientific studies claim that there will be a severe crisis of drinking water by 2050 and many sociologists contend that the next global war, if fought at all, will have the water as its central issue. It is, therefore, not at all difficult to understand the importance of availability vis- a-vis the scarcity of freshwater in the present global scenario. So in all fairness a detailed and well-thought out plan regarding procurement and use of water resources is the need of the hour. In view of such a need, it may not be out of question to consider whether this precious resource can be nationalised.

It is a commonplace belief that nationalisation can prove to be a panacea especially when critical socio-economic issues are entangled in case of any question of socio-economic decision-making. Since independence, India has embarked on the path of mixed economy where the leading role in the economic sphere was entrusted to the public sector and the important resources of the country were nationalised. It was a trend not restricted only within India but all over the world except the capitalist world. However, even in the latter the important and strategic resources remain subjected to the state control though in the recent time the trend has been noticed to get reversed. So, a resource, as important and sensitive as water, justifiably should remain under the state control.

The cases for nationalisation of water resources can be summarised as below".

1) Water is a basic need for survival, so nothing can be allowed to deny this basic right of the people ;

2) The supply of this resource being in the hands of the private business may in all probability harm the fair and equitable access to it by the common people;

3) The cost of supply of pure drinkable water will become increasingly higher so that huge investment will be required on account of this trend. In view of it, it would be reasonable that the Government take necessary steps to control the supply and distribution of water;

4) Not only the drinking water, the other uses of water will also become increasingly costly, particularly its use in agriculture. Because of the involvement of food security with this issue, control of supply of water for farming will be a strategic issue, justifying the governmental control over it;

5) The scarcity of such a fundamental resource would naturally allure the private business to flex their muscles in hope for extracting exorbitant profits from the water business. Without the governmental intervention the situation will simply create immense adversity vis a vis the common people.

However, the act of nationalisation is not always free from defects and unless safeguards are taken it may do harm even where a sensitive issue like the present case is involved. There can be many cases against nationalisation of water resource but they should not be used as pleas for privatising this important resource, rather proper steps need to be taken to curb the demerits emergent from nationalisation presented as follows".

1) Like any other nationalisation program, this may also be doomed if corruption on the part of the politicians and the bureaucrats is not held in check;

2) Efficiency of all sorts must be given the priority;

3) People's participation in varied forms should be encouraged in the policy making and its implementation as to the various aspects of procurement, distribution, uses and supply of water resources.

4) Wastage must be stopped and suitable pricing/taxation policy ought to be evolved;

5) Proper planning is a must for success;

6) Research and development must be carried out with utmost zeal.

Water resources need not be nationalized. This may result in gross injustice if the government allots larger quantities of water to the neighboring state than to the state in which the rivers originally flow. It is better for the states to conclude an agreement on how much quantity of water they must share rather than central government's involvement. There are special tribunals to give t heir judgement if any conflict arises between the states. Where ever the water resources are present, that area has complete right to take majority of share to meet the needs of that region. Thank you.

National rivers must be nationalized and govt should have full domination over it. Its not a property of any individual state or its leaders who seeks for their own benefit. Now a days it became a tendency to oppose all the issues of govt by the political or opposition leaders and finally it hampers the growth of our economy and country. There is no unity or oneness between the states of our country finally if the domination over the rivers go in the hand of political parties then sure it will lead to sabotage.

Hi friends.

According to me the water resources should be nationalized because water is the most important part of life for every human being living on this planet. We are looking for life on mars also but with the availability of the water this shows that water is very important for us to live our life. If water resources are nationalized then there will not be any conflict between the peoples as India is a place of diversity. The authority of water should be given into the hands of the central government and as there is the department of electricity there should be a department of water.

Where people can sit together and make decisions regarding the supply and usage of water in the country and there should be a water meter and water bill for every house as there is a electricity bill. The process of water harvesting should be made compulsory so that water can be conserved. Water is the right of every human being but in India it has been violated by some people so if water gets nationalized this violation done to people in urban villages can be abolished. It has some disadvantages too such as corruption, increased waste product in water by industries will make it polluted, fighting for probational land around the side of river banks etc. But at the same time it has got the advantages, which will help in the growth of the nation with increase in the productivity.

Hey Friends : Am vaidhya. P :Francis Xavier engineering college:.

I would say Nationalizing of water resource is much important.
The water resource is imbalanced in different regions.

The thing is instead of just joining the river to ocean ""if we nationalize them"".

- The usage of the water resource will increase.
- Create employment to the local people.
- Cultivable land can be converted into cultivatable land.
- Reduces the scarcity of in different areas.
- There won't be flooding's.
- No need to build too many dam's.
- Many sources from income such as fishing etc.
- May be a chance for a local transport.

Off-course it has disadvantages too :.

- Chance for corruption.
- Improper ceasing of land.
- May create fight between different regions.
- Industries may make the water polluted.
- AND so many political problems.

But compared to disadvantages there are too many advantages.

The water resources should be nationalized is a good idea that the state political parties can not have a bone for a contention among the people. Since the local political parties have a keen eye on cashing the melee situations created for their benefit.

This ulterior motive was quite obvious when the people of Kerala and Tamilnadu out on the ground with lethal weapons for water related issue. So all rivers and reservoirs established in our country should go under one command.

I feel that water should not be nationalized. India being a diverse country, makes it difficult for the govt to allocate and divide resources equally to the entire population. Hence a state-wise allocation is used as it is less cumbersome and so that state governments can handle the water resources in a better and localized way.

Also, nationalization of water would lead to water wars and huge demand which will lead to dying out of the water in rivers. Even without nationalization, states are fighting over sharing water and excessive use of shared waters. Hence it would cause a major disaster if we nationalize water.

Instead efforts should be made to conservation, water harvesting techniques, construction of wells and bringing in a better system for recording and billing water usage as it is done for electricity.

Coming to pros:
- Nationalization can improve gross usage of water resources there by decreasing wastage
- It creates employment to several people directly or indirectly
- Future scope of utility of these can be estimated and implemented

Well, the cons are:

Hello friends. This is ranjana Rathore and I appreciate all of yours views in positive ways or which are given negative also but I think that water resources should not be nationalized Because it leads corruption and wastage of water resources. There is no need of nationalization every state have to take steps for saving rainy water and use it in efficient way also utilize the ground water as possible.

In my point of view the nationlisation of water is must because in so much of states facing water scarcity problems. To avoid such kind of problems nationalisation is must. I would like to share my idea with you some states having well water resource but they are not fully the water resource and in many states they are well positioned in power production from water but ther not sufficient water resource in such states in thi s condition the states that are good in water resource can give water to power production states and also for agriculture.

I think water should be nationalized. If the Government nationalizes them the government think of the need of the water in each state. Government supplies the water to each and every state as the demand of the water. Some stages have huge amount of water in there reservoirs and some don't have a single drop. Water is essential for every one. If government takes the responsibilities then all the land comes under cultivation and it will increases the productivity of the land and there by decrease the importing of goods from other countries and increase the number quality and quantity of the goods exported to the other countries by which it will increase the Indian economy. We are still a developing country we should use each and every path to make India a completely developed country. By making the rivers nationalized the land becomes fertile and can be used for cultivation there are by the Indian labors can get some work, some food, and even Indian goods quality can also be increased.

Actually what I feel if some knowledge is given to the rural as well as urban areas people about the future effect of the scarcity of water through campaign or many other media. A waterless state and we are searching water for the irrigation purpose and we are facing this problem often because we are left with no water from Karnataka state and the crops are dieing of no water source, so the water resource is to be nationalized is so important for a state like Tamilnadu.

Hi friends this is raj. I think water resources should not be nationalized. Already we have many more problems and corruption cases in India if we start this project this time that also leads to corruption. So rather than thinking about nationalization of water resources we can build more DAMS across the river. That makes the to grow up the level of ground water and we can use those water on different seasons.

Nationalisation of water resources has both pros and cons. Though it is a sensitive issue to be handled, considerations from different state governments are to be looked before doing any proceedings in this aspect. As different water resources cater different kinds of needs, it is to be clearly understood what type of resources are to be nationalised.

Coming to pros:
- Nationalization can improve gross usage of water resources there by decreasing wastage
- It creates employment to several people directly or indirectly
- Future scope of utility of these can be estimated and implemented

Well, the cons are:
- Political issues may concern the implementation of developmental activities
- Corruption may go high
- Inefficient monitoring leads to increased wastes of water resources

There is no point in nationalising water resources. The reason is in advanced cities and metros the presences of water mafias are growing with the help of politians and no one can deny it. And now that every week some or the other scams are being unearthed, it clealry shows the mis-management of politicians in the cabinet. So how can they manage after nationalising it? What is the proof that they don't misuse?

Building dams are also not the option as it will disturb the ecological imbalance. Rather if every state take up responisbilities to take care of their water resources by checking leaking pipes, pilferage and acting upon water mafias, we can definitely save water!

Ya it must be nationalised. But it must be in a systematic way that the water must supply to each and every village of India. And I think as it is a matter of whole India the govt might plan in such a way only. And as we see all central govt quotas are well serving now a days, from railway to military. I tried best to defend my talk thank you.

I think every major water resources like river, lakes, dams are under the control of government now only left is wells and the boring done at the house place or at the farming place, I think it would be very difficult for the government to nationalize all these sources and also it is not necessary. Instead of thinking in this way I would say Government must make the arrangement to make the nearby river water reach to the location facing water scarcity. As it has been done in the Rajkot. In Rajkot the water of huge river NARMADA is provided when its city DAM is not able to provide sufficient water to the city.

So government must take the complaints of the people facing water scarcity problems and must take such kind of quick steps for the betterment of our country and its people.

Water resources should not be nationalised otherwise there also we will have a lot many A. Rajas cropping up and water will not actually be reaching to the ones who need it. More so with monsoon patterns changing since a last few years western parts of India which received scanty rainfalls are now receiving sufficient rainfalls. So instead of nationalising people should be trained for modern methods of water conservation and storage.

I completely agree with the topic. Rather than just nationalizing the water resources, there must be a separate committee of well educated people, which specifically work on how water resources must be utilized and distributed among states. But this authority must be genuine and shouldn't work under political pressures.

I don't think so, if water resources are nationalized then that may be another reason to instigate war. Water is free flowing, a nations inability to maintain healthy water will cause the dirt n other things to flow to other nations causing differences. Even if we talk about division of water on the basis of states, every state will have its own demand.

We are already having enough agitations on the division of states then division water would be disastrous, every other territory will demand more and more. The best thing I feel that can be done is to allocate a strong distribution channel to ensure that water reaches the unprivileged parts of our country.

Hi friends this is Rajesh I believe that water resources should be nationalised, because there are many states and region where there is a scarcity of water. We all might have seen that there are many places where huge amount of water getting wasted everyday, so instead of wasting so much of water government should take certain steps where it is possible to supply those water to the place where there is scarcity of water, as a result both the places will have sufficient amount of water to meet their requirements, this will only be possible when government take strict decision regarding there policies and make people understood that wastage of water is a crime.

Hai am vaishnavi, belongs to Mailam Engineering college. My view is that, the water resources needs to be nationalized, except a few state, everyone here are facing a water scarcity problems, if we nationalize the resources, as India n agricultural country could be improved further. Due to scarcity problems many cultivable lands are being converted into industrial lands. So to solve those problems nationalisation of water needs to be mandatory.

I do agree with advantages over nationalizing water resources, whereas there are more problem with we don't foresee to. The water resources being nationalized, water would be polluted all over the nation. There are many textile and leather industries spread across the country. They have been polluting the nearby rivers and lakes to dispose their waste. For the case, take Tirupur in Tamil nadu. The place which attracts all textile people of the country and abroad.

The underground water there is so contaminated that, they get coloured water everywhere they put a bore. If people have nearly contaminated the underground water itself, imagine the water which would be flowing on the surface. The nationalization of water can be done, if the government is very strict with their policies and rules though. Or nationalization would end as a disaster.

I agree with nationalising water resources. Then there will not be any water scarcity problems prevailling in country. Then all dams, ponds, wells can be effectively managed by govt to distribute water to all citizens of equal cost.

Water supply can be done through ration cards through litere cans. In some areas people are suffering lot to fetch water. This can be reduced. Govt can save lot of water futher use.
