PANAJI: Releasing a book on water productivity mapping of major Indian crops, Union minister for water resources and Ganga rejuvenation Nitin Gadkari said that there is no scarcity of water in the country.

“We have to improve upon the planning and management of water resources. Our ministry and government are thinking about innovative ways for better management of water resources,” Gadkari said even as he announced that a proposal for desalination plants at Tuticorin, Paradip and Kandla were under consideration.

He further said that his ministry was in the process to encourage the setting up of pipelines in place of long canals. "Piped and drip irrigation will definitely conserve water. We are committed for the vision of Har Khet Ko Pani and Per Drop More Drop,” Gadkari said.

Secretary Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation UP Singh emphasized on the need of short-term measures for water conservation. He said that perforated Borings should be used for quick recharge and storage for underground water.
