Clean and pure Drinking Water is a basic need of every human being. As per the latest reports from Water Aid, a global advocacy group on water and sanitation, In India more than 63 million people do not have access to clean drinking water. Taking this into consideration, RBL Bank in association with AquaKraft has taken up the initiative to provide clean Drinking Water in Rural India.
The RBL Bank will soon provide Water ATMs across 20 rural branches in Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat and Aquakraft will implement the Water ATMs. These Water ATMs will have a capacity of 500 to 1000 litres per day. People will get 300 ml water at Rs.1.
Sustainable Water Management: Green Technology for Water Purification Process!
These Water ATMs will use green technology for filtration process to avoid the wastage of water (unlike Reverse Osmosis) and also it will work on gravity with very limited use of electricity.
The another best part is this is socio-economic model which enable use of green technology, financial inclusion, skill development, women empowerment & sustainable development along with supplying clean drinking water.
