Central Ground Water Authority NOC Certificate for Boring Permission: The role of groundwater in the country’s food security and in meeting the requirements of domestic and industrial sectors is recognized by all, yet the full implications of its injudicious utilization are understood by only a few. Ground Water management is needed to meet various sectoral demands without causing damage to fragile aquifers under stress. The price to be paid for this rapid development is emerging in the form of increasing areas of water scarcity and a fast decline in groundwater levels.

Central Ground Water Authority (CGWA) constituted under Environment Protection Act, 1986, under the direction of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, is playing its role in the regulation and control of groundwater in the country. The paper deals with various activities of CGWA License and experiences during their implementation. The positive impact of control is reflected in greater awareness of the need for judicious management of available resources.

CGWA NOC Certificate plays a proactive role in creating awareness about demand side management including artificial recharge of groundwater and rainwater harvesting which has started showing its results as a public movement. The future strategy to effectively manage the fast-depleting groundwater resources in the country envisages a constitution of State Groundwater Authorities with technical support from Central Government.
