This chapter discusses some of the initiatives that have been taken to regulate water supply. These include legal instruments that cover water supply in general and a number of more specific instruments that address either urban or rural areas separately. The chapter is organized into three sections. The first reproduces instruments that address drinking water in general. The second considers policy documents of the Union Government and some state level legal instruments concerning rural water supply. The third focuses on urban drinking water supply and includes some existing legislation as well as policy documents which propose a new framework for water supply, to include a focus on cost recovery and the involvement of the private sector.
