Are you looking for a Telemetry System for Groundwater Monitoring that meets the Latest Guidelines Issued by the Central Ground Water Authority (CGWA)?

In this article, you will get a brief on the necessary Guidelines of CGWA. 

And we will also introduce to you the LogicLadder’s – The Sustainability Cloud, which is a Modern Groundwater Monitoring & Management System that complies with the necessary guidelines issued by CGWA.

Latest Guidelines Issued by Central Ground Water Authority(CGWA)

The prominent points as per the Guidelines Issued by CGWA dated September 24, 2020 as as follows:

  1. The issued guidelines will be applicable to pan-india.
  2. If states and Union territories come up with their groundwater abstraction guidelines, the provisions inside CGWA guidelines will prevail in case of inconsistencies among the two.
  3. You are exempted from seeking the No Objection Certificate(NOC) if your industry draws less than 10cum/day and is registered under Micro and Small Entereprises. 

With regards to the Groundwater Monitoring System, following are some key notable points-

  1. If you have already obtained the NOC from CGWA, then you must install a digital water flow meter with telemetry system in all your existing groundwater abstraction structure, irrespective of quantum of groundwater withdrawal. 
  2. Failing to install the Groundwater telemetry system or a running on faulty system may result in a penalty of Rs 200000 from your end as per the gazette notification.
