Indian Reservoirs’ Storage Level Drops for 33rd Week in a Row


Amid scorching summer, the total live storage available in 150 key reservoirs across India is 24 per cent of the total live storage capacity, marking a 21 per cent decrease recorded during the same period last year. The current storage represents 79 per cent of last year’s levels and 95 per cent of the ten-year average normal storage. Gujarat and Maharashtra are experiencing lower storage levels compared to the last year.
