Special Correspondent

Pondicherry: All users of groundwater who are either abstracting groundwater from their own tube wells or by transportation from outside should get themselves registered (if they have not done so till now) with the Ground Water Authority constituted under the Pondicherry Groundwater (Control and Regulation) Act before the end of December.

Member-Secretary of the Authority S. Sekar said in a release here recently that the users of groundwater came under agriculture, industries, educational institutions, hospitals, hotels, cinemas and also (for drinking water purpose) the Central and State Government organisations in the Union Territory of Pondicherry. They should register themselves with the Authority.
