Legislations

 

There are a number of legislations on the  national level with the objective of conserving natural resources like water as well for addressing the problem of pollution. However, water  being a state subject, the importance of state legislations on the same theme is that much more. Various states have either already formulated or are in the process of drafting legislations tackling natural resources like land and water.
