India has a shortage of water. The water problems are common in both urban and rural areas. Every summer these problems increase further.

The taps and tanks grow dry because of the heat. Every year the heat of summer is rising due to climate change. This make the problem even worse.

It is expected that India might be having a severe water scarcity this summer.

The Ministry of Water Resources says that the water levels in 91 reservoirs across India already dropped by 3%.

During such times, it is important to take precautions to save water. Doing your part will help fight water scarcity. Here are some hacks you can try to save your water so you don’t have to buy it.
