Controlled water management in India
Proper management of water is important in every country and especially in populated countries like India. It is high time that we need to measure our water usage in our homes. Putting a SMART TAP at the water tank would be a necessity in the near future.
Imagine a digital and eco-friendly village. IOT ( internet of things ) is part of their daily life. And their smart tap is used to measure the water usage in the home. And it is connected to the IOT, continuously sends some data related to water flow and quality of water etc.. The smart tap also measures the water level based on the pressure at the tap. And gives you reminders about the water filling.
The village officer can analyze the water usage of each house in that village and he can give some incentives/rewards to the less average water usage. In the other post, we have discussed the Aadhaar based dustbins, giving incentives to the villagers for cleanliness.
The incentive-based schemes are not the first time to the Govt. or to the business people. To promote UPI payments via BHIM app, Govt. is giving cash back. In a similar context, Google also gave Rs. 51/- as cash back for the new users and giving scratch cards to the user as and when the transaction is done. The cashback scheme is successful in India.
We need to apply the same cashback schemes in activities related to nature. Then only people will think about it.
