As we've mentioned previously, India is a prime market for rainwater harvesting because of the abundance of rain in contrast to the high degree of water contamination issues. But as we've recently been reminded, there is one other important reason- government support.
According to the Ministry of Water Resources, rooftop rainwater harvesting systems are now mandatory for new buildings in 18 of India’s 28 states and four of its seven federally-administered union territories. Even more important is the Minister for Rural Development's position that about 50 percent of the funds for India’s rural employment act are being used for water harvesting systems.
RainSaucers, which is mainly going to be targeted at rural areas in India, should be able to benefit from this overall awareness and government promotion.
