The excessive digging of tube wells and has created a very serious problem that we have last our natural resource in the form of under ground water. It is a rackless, senseless and ignorance and that we indulged in excessive exploitation of under ground water. The situation in India has reached the such situation that 60 to 70 per cent areas of the country is facing water shortage. After 1997 the 57 per cent of areas are affected by drought condition.
