NSD Logo
The Maharashtra government today assured the Bombay High Court that it has implemented various drought mitigation measures, including preparation of action plans for dealing with water scarcity. After a bad monsoon, the government declared drought in 151 of 358 tehsils in the state last October.

The government filed an affidavit in response to a public interest litigation filed by activist Sanjay Lakhe Patil. The PIL sought implementation of the isaster Management Act and setting up of disaster management committees in every district.

The affidavit said the Water Conservation Department of the state government has initiated 'Jalyukt Shivar' program for water conservation.  The court is likely to take up the petition for further hearing next week.
