BIS should test water of all municipalities

11 tap water samples taken in Delhi by bis have failed the bis water standards. I bet Noida will be no different and same with Gurgaon Ghaziabad Faridabad.

BIS to ensure they know reality should take water samples in all 53 cities of India with 1M population and then more cities and towns.

I am sure members of the circles can help your field officers with this if u chose to.

BIS must become more proactive and engage with the people. Anybody can copy theory from foreign countries and write standards. Real standards can only be developed when u get out and about and talk to people. Just talking to vested industry players is not sufficient. Its step 2.

Hope action is taken on this clean water matter. After all its our PMs vision. more

Sorry. BIS is a standard framing authority. The testing has be done in laboratories only. more  
Yes you are right. If some one wants to get their product approved and get BIS certificate then only they test n give particular BIS certificate. No where in the world such certificate is taken by any water supply company or council.

Moreover, there are many loop holes in the system the packed water supply companies are required to print nutritional values on it but never right about other hazardous chemicals or pesticides ,either totally absent or what maximum ppm are there. Like fluoride, cyanide, phosphites etc;

Wow, kya apana system has? more  
helpful..

There is a Nanotechnology based water purification equipment ready to be launch in India , its a best suited POU NanoMesh WPE operates with zero wastage of Water and No power requirements . Please find here the BSS NanoMesh WPE product catalogue more  
Good, but our risk taking ability or to try new technology is very weak n by the time we adopt it, something new come up. Moreover , all municipal water plants are using the mix of mostly traditional purification like pressure send filter, lime and alumn beds plus poly-synthetic resins n lastly chlorination , only lacking is proper monitoring ,casual approach of authorities n on time checking of water quality, that is it's potability standards. From season to season the intake water quality of intake either from river or lakes or ground waters changes n depending on it the purification filtration parameters to be changed.

Though all public health laboratories manatorily checks water quality but by the time reports are available people have already consumed it .

Any technology or world best technology we may use, but the water supply systematic in n age old pipings, pumps nerds to be replaced n no drinking water pipes should be along with swear lines . That is most important. Which is grossly neglated all over.

As a result the packed water business has flourished n reach up to multi millions rupees.

Like the environment ministries monitoring of Air Quality index a similar Water quality index nerds to be framed n must be displayed on each junction of areas on LED display. more  
There is acute shortage of drinking water in India as the population
is huge (un-manageable). Supplying just water is a challenging job
what to talk about clean water. Villagers in many parts of the country
spend the whole day to bring 1-2 pitchers of water from wells. No body
knows the quality of such water. People in many States have caught
life taking diseases due to high level of hazardous elements in the
water. No State Govt. has taken any steps to provide clean water
to its residents. Every Neta is worried about his pay/perks/pension.
There is dire need to control population and make all out efforts
by all Sate Governments to provide safe drinking water. The
funds required for this mission should be saved by curtailing
wasteful expenditure and not by imposing fresh taxes/cess. more  
Helpful....you are suggesting tasks which they probably never did.....
