| Saturday | 23rd June, 2018
GURUGRAM: The hydrology department in Gurugram is reeling under acute staff shortage even as the city’s groundwater table continues to deplete at an alarming rate with each passing year.
While tanker mafia is operating openly in the city, many construction projects are using groundwater from illegal borewells.
“It seems that protection of groundwater is not on the agenda of the state government.
There is no check on the violations,” said Aseem Takyar, a city-based RTI activist.Despite repeated attempts by TOI, deputy commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh could not be contacted.
We have been doing our best to keep a check over any violation,” he added.A senior hydrologist, who retired from the post a few years ago, said “it is not something new in Gurugram”.
