Should Water Resources Be Nationalized?



  • At present, all rivers and lakes in India are in the authority of respective state government.
  • In some areas floods are occurring and in some areas droughts occurring. If we connect all the rivers these problems will be solved. So, India is planning to nationalize water resources.
  • Well planned architecture is needed to connect all this rivers.
  • To nationalize water resources, every state have to agree for the proposal.

In Favor:-

  • Flood and drought conditions will be prevented.
  • Some fertile lands are wasting because of lack of water facility.
  • Water have been moving to the sea. By connecting the rivers, we can redirect to dry places.
  • As there is the difference in height of lands, we can generate power in this project if we plan to do so
  • Many will get employment during the project and also after completion of the project for maintaining purpose.
  • We can avoid the fights between states.

In Against:-

  • In some areas, industrial waste have been disposing in rivers. This polluted water will spread all over the country.
  • It requires lakhs of acres of land.
  • There is a argument in against to this proposal that instead of nationalizing all the rivers, we should make people aware of water saving methods such as preserving the rain water etc.


Water resources should be nationalized to solve all water problems in India. It’s better if we plan the path through barren lands. So that, there will be no wastage of fertile lands. Govt. should take necessary steps to stop the dumping of industrial wastage in rivers.

  1. Yes this was very good proposal, a good action was taken by the govt because Agriculture many depandnce on water, because most of the farmers in the india failed due to rain. Farmers grown good crop it was at final stage to harvest in that situation drought will occur, this was the pathatic condition to farmers. Farmers are sowed the seeds , they are waiting for emerging of seeds but rain not come, in that drought occurs, so if we solving this problem we can do only one waa nationalizing water resources, but it consume more land so we use barren land for doing this project.
    Thank you…….
