National Water Quality Sub-Mission for Clean Drinking Water

National Water Quality Sub-Mission for Clean Drinking Water

The ministry of drinking water and sanitation has launched the ‘National Water Quality Sub-Mission’ to accomplish the aim to provide tap water to all by 2030. The outlay of this mission is Rs 25,000 crore. The government has decided to provide clean drinking water to 28,000 habitations which are heavily affected with arsenic and fluoride contaminants in water by 2021.

The Problem of water pollution has been increasing at an alarming rate in India. Among the all, West Bengal is very badly affected by arsenic, while Rajasthan crippled by the excess presence of fluoride contaminants in drinking water.
The Water contamination, mainly from arsenic and fluoride, can cause serious health hazards.

The Center has sent notifications to states to plan specific proposals to tackle the problem of contaminated drinking water.
The ministry of drinking water and sanitation has commissioned around 35 research and development projects to clean the drinking water in rural areas.

5 Ways you can adapt the de-monitization into a packaged drinking water business

Are you suffering due to demonitisation ?

As the rest of the industry , Packaged drinking water is no different. It is also suffering very badly.(we too suffered somewhat, frankly !) Recently , we paid a visit to some nearby Packaged Drinking Water Plants, many of them were running very much under capacity and some of them were literally closed operations. Reasons ?

Winter , December , a temporary setback. Let’s assume that these plants are closed due to the seasonal behavior of the business. But do people stop drinking pure water ? No. Then probably you need to rectify your marketing mix. You might be only focusing on  the “take away” market. But there are many other ways. Want to learn these quick ? Recently we conducted an Onlie Marketing Session for Offline businessmen & mentors for an agency which helps entrepreneurs to get Loans & mentor support at Pune. Just download a Free Training on how you can find out your exact niche & start selling online

Demonitization , is the second reason. Packaged Drinking Water or Mineral Water is sold majority in Cash.It is also consumed in cash by the User. There is a heavy drop due to unavailability of Cash in the market. Have people become frugal ? yes, temporarily. But they have not become No-Health-Conscious at all. What to do in such a case ?

Here are 5 Ways you can conquer this situation

Accept the Change, believe in change !

Nothing remains the same, so here is a change. And believe in that. With every new change, the old demolishes , but offers tremendous new set of opportunities. Believe in this , take it positively !Make Changes in your Offerings. Start accepting digital payments, paying digitally. Use Paytm or anything else. It’s very very easy. You will need to adapt yourself to the situation & also educate your team mates , customers , distributors , the delivery boys , the loaders , drivers etc. to go more & more Online. Activate your Debit cards , Internet Banking. Start giving-accepting cheque payments wherever possible; internet banking , wherever possible.

You can outsmart the old players very fast

But now, this can be your opportunity. Act above them, score over them, learn quickOnline Techniques to outsmart them. Who knows; you can be another Uber Story of Packaged Drinking Water ?

Being “White” is feeling more proud , right ?

As you know, the national anthem is going to be played in every cinema theatre now. There is a lot of gossip over this, but the intention of the govt. is very right behind that :- National pride to feel to be an Indian. Same feeling you will express when you change from the “Black” business into a “White” one. Every time. Now start accepting Digital Payments & feel proud.

Create an energetic atmosphere all round your organization !

The POS alias Point of Sale is the first point where you either escalate your business or drop down. The POS is usually a Grocery Shop , or a Railway Station Booth or it can be a Hospital. You will need to create an atmosphere here , to encourage these people to accept Payments through PaytM or any mobile wallet of their choice. There are many ways , but the willingness to do it is the most important thing. Spot the “Right” guys n gals in your company (who are optimistic, assertive, positive), hand pick them & inspire them further to inspire others. These are influencers.

Now, Raids for quality checks of Packaged Drinking Water Samples

Puduchery officials raid shops at Bus Stands 

Very recently, officials from the Puducherry Food Safely department raided shops on the new bus stand at Puducherry and randomly collected some samples. Here’s a news from the Hindu :-

The team, led by I. Dhanaraju, Food Safety Officer, raided 10 shops in the new bus stand and seized five bubble top water cans, 30 bottles of packaged drinking water, and 300 packets of packaged water for analysis and examination on instructions from the Commissioner of Food Safety and Drug Administration. The raids were conducted by the authorities to check the quality and genuineness of branded water being sold for public consumption in the bus stand.

Now, these samples will be sent to the lab for checking genuineness of the Water. What will be checked?  If it’s packaged drinking water bottles, pouches, it has to be ISI licensed, so ,expected from that is the declared desired parameters. Maybe, the source too. All the labels carry the date of packing, so even they will be checked for duplicacy as well.
