According to the survey, only 3 out of India’s 28 states and union territories in India are meeting the required operating standards of sewage treatment. The environment ministry improved standards for four parameters to determine water quality, namely; pH value, Bio-Chemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Suspended Solids (TSS) and Fecal Coliform (FC).

These new norms will be applied to all sewage treatment plants after June 2019, and all existing plants have to comply with them within the next five years. These standards do not apply, if the treated sewage discharged into a water bodies is used for industrial purposes. The standards will be applied only if; it is come in the contact with the human bodies.

The main motive of the government is to encourage reuse and recycling. However, it is more necessary to control the sewage discharged into the water bodies because if the sewage is more than the capacity of sewage treatment plants (STPs) or the sewerage network, then it will be critical to handle the situation. All the industries and the local bodies should come up together and cooperate to the government to fight with the water pollution.
