‘water pricing regime is the only solution’

Huffington Post in ‘The Morning Wrap’ today:

“Moving towards a water pricing regime is the only solution to promote efficient and equitable usage of water, says an editorial in Mint. “A Hindi proverb, paisa paani ki tarah bahaana, warns against wasteful expenditure of money on the scale of water… That India — a country ranking high on water scarcity — spends water so profligately is not just proverbial, but has now also been driven home with two consecutive years of drought.
