Question raised in Lok Sabha on Water Management Index, 06/04/2017
Question raised in Lok Sabha on Water Management Index, 06/04/2017. NITI Aayog has developed a Composite Water Management Index as a useful tool to assess and further improve the performance in efficient management of water resources. The index would provide useful information for the States and also for the concerned Central Ministries/Departments enabling them to formulate and implement suitable strategies for better management of water resources. The Index has 28 key Performance Indicators (KPIs) covering irrigation status, drinking water and other water-related sectors (Annexure). It is targeted to prepare the index for States/Union Territories from the current financial year (2017-18).
