Did you know India is the 2nd highly populated country in the world?
We share our land and resources with 1.3 billion people. But sadly in a democratic nation like India, not everyone has the access to the basic requirements that is necessary to sustain human life.
Over the years, meeting the needs of such a large population has been a challenge. A shocking number of 163 million people have zero access to safe drinking water. People staying in rural areas are at high risk of falling sick due to the consumption of unsafe water. Bottled drinking water is sold at a high price, which adds up to their plight.
In recent years, Indian government implemented a new solution to tackle the water crisis. Water Vending Machines popularly called ‘Water ATMs’ have been set up in various parts of the country to ensure access to safe drinking water for the common man. These machines have drastically reduced the drinking water crisis in many remote parts of India, especially places where other means of water transportation were inefficient.
The impact of Water ATMs in India
The first Water ATM was set up in Hyderabad by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to make safe drinking water an accessible resource for people. Fast forward to 2019, drinking water has become more easily accessible for people in India now, especially women who had to walk for long ours to seek water. Quarrels over water have now reduced significantly in areas where water ATMs have been installed in the country.
Let’s look at how water ATMs have made life easier for people.
Technology has played a major role in this. An automatic alert system is set up in the Water Vending Machines which automatically alert the team regarding any error in the system. The water quality is under constant check making sure that the water dispensed is safe for human consumption. Water ATMs are nowadays also installed at public places like railway stations, to make sure safe drinking water is available for people at any place at any time.
Rite Water Solutions is one of the leading water solution providers in India.
Under the guidance and vision of CEO Abhijeet Gaan, various steps have been done to provide safe drinking water available to the common people. Water ATMs have been set up in various places like Nagpur, where the economic and development level is low.
Various industry-level solutions have also been implemented by Rite Water Solutions to ensure that each of us takes full responsibility to save water. Providing safe drinking water at a much lower rate than the package bottle providers, water ATMs have become the common man’s dependable water resource.
