On the face of it, there have been several interventions by the state and its agencies to solve the crisis. But unfortunately, even after several years of planning the implementation has been, at best, sketchy. In this chapter, we put forth the various recommendations and plan objectives undertaken by the government to address the situation over the years. As a part of its intervention initiatives, the government has also set up substantial number of organisations and institutes partaking scientific research to device technological solutions. We also look closely at the roles played by these various organisations and institutes involved in the process of supplying safe drinking water by analysing empirical evidence.
