Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been a busy man ever since he took charge of the state. From the farm loan waiver announcement to having a crackdown on the illegal slaughterhouses, he has taken some strong decisions. He has not only made the governance strict but has also focused on environmental issues and steps are being taken to turn the state green and healthy.
Yogi Adityanath while expressing his concerns over the depleting groundwater level has found out a remedial measure which will not only provide adequate resource but will also end the scarcity in towns and cities.
CM Yogi Adityanath has tightened rules and if you are thinking of building a new house in Uttar Pradesh you will have to do ‘this’ if you want a clearance for your dream house.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath issued a new order directing officials not to give clearance for construction of houses in Uttar Pradesh unless there is a provision of rainwater harvesting facility in the map. He directed the officials that provisions should be made that a map of a house is passed only if it has the rainwater harvesting facility mentioned.
The chief minister, while expressing his concerns over the depleting groundwater level, suggested rainwater harvesting as an important measure for water conservation. The Chief Minister, while issuing the order, stated that his government intends to ensure that people of the state do not face a shortage of drinking water. The CM further directed the UP Jal Nigam officials to ensure that the benefits of various government schemes reach to the doorsteps of the needy.
The idea of adopting rainwater harvesting was first made mandatory in the state of Tamil Nadu after which it had a tremendous impact in recharging the groundwater table all over Tamil Nadu. This new order will not just save water but will also meet the needs of several people thus ensuring that scarcity of water is never seen in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
