Acute Shortage of Water in India

The following are among the steps to mitigate the shortage of water:
(1)Recycling used water by necessary treatment
(2) Dig enough Tanks, size-wise and number-wise and prompt owners of houses and offices to make rainwater pits, for rainwater to be captured and stored for subsequent use after treatment
(3) Collect water charges fairly from users and take punitive action against those not paying the charges promptly
(4) ‘Devise equipment to detect leakages in pipes carrying water and plug them without delay
(5) Dig bore-wells in low-lying areas to pump up underground water which would have accumulated underground over the past several years owing to seepage of rainwater.
(6) Desalinize sea water for the use of residents near the sea more

with corrupt politicians and inefficient officials at most places no good plan works .Desilting ponds ,lakes and canal regularly alone will surely get surplus water more  
The works for connecting the nation's major rivers to plug drainage of water of excessive rains in some parts to maintain water level of the rivers of other parts of the country facing drought condition need to be taken on war footing. Moreover, necessary arrangements could not be made since independence to put in proper utilisation of the water flowing through the rivers passing through J&K. Due to lack of storage and canals to flow the water to plains for irrigation purposes, the water of those rivers meant for us is also given to our neighbour nation, whereas, more than 50% of our agricultural land is starving to single crops due to paucity of water to irrigate. The government must pay its urgent attention towards these issues to fight back to future water crisis. more  
I appreciate the measures suggested by Mr Sastri but who will do it and how ? The government should take some hard measures to stop free uses of water and penalise the persons and soceities consuming / wasting more water inaddition to recycling and rain water harvesting etc. more  
it is snowing throughout the year in the north that can be harvested to
mitigate water shortage.
