Water Use and Rights – India

Berkshire Publishing Edited by SAM GEALL, JINGJING LIU, and SONY PELLISSERY 2012

Water use is regulated by a number of laws, rules, and principles in India. These include rights of control asserted by the government and individual usufructuary (i.e., use rather than ownership) rights. Water use is also regulated through much broader pronouncements, such as the fundamental right to water. In recent years, water law reforms have introduced signifi cant changes, including the establishment of water regulatory authorities and water user associations.
