The north-south extent of the plateau is about 1600 km and east-west extent is about 1400 km. It is triangular in shape and covers an area of 16 lakh sq. km

B) “What is required are laws and rules to recognise that water is a common flowing resource. Drinking water is the first priority as well as a human right and that panchayat rai institutions must have control over the use of groundwater.”
Q. Do you think the laws and control of the government on the utilisation of groundwater in a right way are enough? What measures are to be taken up in Your opinion?
A) 1. Industrialisation helped to large-scale production. It brought lot of comforts making the living happy and provided luxuries.

2. This is one side of the industrialisation. The second side is that it leads to

  • deforestation
  • soil erosion
  • rising dependence on fossil fuels
  • industrial emissions
  • use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides in agriculture.

3. These all lead to climate changes, global warming and environmental problems.
Eg: Kerala floods in August 2018.

4. The present generation and future generations too suffer a lot.

5. So, there is a need to broaden the focus of development from material goods and services to all people – present and future generations.

6. The environment should also be sustained saving living and non-living resources.

For this, we have to take measures like:

  • To meet the needs of the present and future generations.
  • To provide better quality of life for everyone
  • To conserve fertility of the soil
  • To reduce water pollution


  1. nowadays, there is growing awareness on usage of water
  2. Every drop of Water is to be saved.
  3. The governments are making laws and controlling utilisation of groundwater.
  4. Groundwater is also a public property concerning all the people around it. Everyone has right to use it.
  5. The government has to take serious action against indiscriminate digging of bore wells and the overdrawing of water.
  6. However, the public should feel the responsibility. They should have collective responsibility in caring ground water.
  7. Unless public feels the responsibility, the government can’t administer the laws. The present laws and control of government in a right way are enough.
