Niti Aayog will start a process to sensitise states towards preparing a Water Management Index which leads to the Centre’s think tank to rank them on the basis of efforts in efficient water resource management.
State’s performance will be judged on the basis of 28 basic indicators including water use efficiency, irrigation status, groundwater recharge, availability of water for rural and urban areas for drinking, water shed development and other sustainable practices in water based sectors.
Niti Aayog has developed a composite WMI to assess and improve performance in efficient water resource management.
Different weightage is allocated to different performance indicators to arrive at a composite index.
The scorecard carries both qualitative and quantitative indicators in 2016-2017.
The WMI is one of the six indices which the Niti Aayog has introduced for ranking states.
The others include health, education, energy efficiency , agricultural reforms and digital transaction.
