Water is the most important resource for any life to exist. One issue that urban India faces continuously is the water crisis. They get most of their water supply from rivers and lakes. As the local sources dry out due to mismanagement and overuse, the search for another resource turns even more distant. The situation has an ironical turn. At one side the cities are facing severe water crisis and on the other hand they are flooded with rainwater, which is the most common source of fresh water in the monsoon. The neglected harvesting systems have simply worsened the situations. Today, the hunt for a water source and its sustainability is a big concern. One of the solutions for water crisis is capturing of this abundant rainwater through rainwater harvesting.
The first and the foremost reason for rainwater harvesting is to overcome the situation of inadequacy of surface water to meet the demands.
It increases the groundwater table, this is the easiest and most economical choice,and also replenishes the subsoil of the city area, which is covered with pavements. Rainwater harvesting also improves the quality of underground water through a process called dilution.
It provides water for irrigation of greenbelts, farms, gardens etc. It is thus an issue of importance and action needs to be taken in this regard.

In certain colonies in Delhi this initiative has been taken and is showing good results.
