Large numbers of households in cities around the developing countries don't have access to at least one of the foremost basic of human needs – a secure and reliable supply of drinkable water.

A review of these ongoing reforms illustrates a number of the economics challenges concerned in reforming the water sector.
While every country faces distinctive challenges and opportunities, the scope and range of the Indian experience offer insights and caveats for several low-income nations.
In over fifty years of political independence and economic development, India has not been able to ensure the most basic of human needs safe drinking water for all of its citizens. And it’s a fact!
Rural areas contain the biggest range of people without access to safe water however, in common with several developing countries, the fastest growing unserved populations live in urban and Peri-urban areas.
Water accessibility and quality
The water system in most Indian cities is just offered for a few hours per day, the pressure is irregular, and therefore the water is of questionable quality.
No major Indian town or city has a 24-hour supply of water, with four to five hours of provide per day being the norm. This compares to the Asian Pacific average of 19 hours per day supply.
Groundwater depletion rate is incredibly high within the NCR (National Capital Region) which can be seen from the below image.
