Water is very essential for us. Without water, we cannot assume our life. To protect and preserve the water bodies is our fundamental duty. There are some laws specifically for the prevention of water pollution but no specific laws dealing with all problems related to the equitable distribution of water. Water cannot be a personal good because the water was always a common good. Old laws are not sufficient to deal with the problem that lies in the modern period with the distribution of water. India is facing a lot of scarcity of water and our economy’s lot of funds we are bearing to manage the distribution of safe drinking water. So, there is a need to mix all the components related to water distribution law in one place and there should be a law on the national level to deal with the problems related to groundwater and surface water. Judiciary has time given guidelines for water laws. This is the right time for specific water laws related to the distribution of safe drinking water.
