Posted February 18, 2018 03:11:25Indus minerals are extremely valuable.
Indus minerals form the bedrock of the Himalayan mountains.
There are over 20,000 minerals, mostly silica, in the Himalayas, with many more being mined and used in industry.
The minerals are rich in silicate, and the mineral-rich water of the Indus Valley has been used to treat sewage for centuries.
Water from the Indas, however, is not used as a drinking water source in India, as it contains minerals such as lead and magnesium.
But with the development of groundwater, the demand for groundwater has risen significantly.
With the rapid growth of industry and population, the use of groundwater has also risen dramatically.
“The demand for water has gone up rapidly.
This has led to huge increase in the amount of groundwater being used for agriculture and industry,” said M.M. Singh, former head, Centre for Water Resources, State Water Resources Department.
He added that there is a shortage of water in the district.
“So, in a way, there is the issue of water scarcity.
And in some areas, there are large areas where the demand is not met, so we are having to resort to groundwater,” he said.
However, there has been no official announcement from the state government on when the demand will be met.
The government is yet to set up a dedicated office for groundwater in the state.
