This chapter discusses the institutional framework for water, which is made up of various bodies with different, and sometimes overlapping, mandates. At the union level, the relative lack of unity in the institutional framework can be ascribed partly to the fact that there is no framework water legislation that would define the mandate of the ministry in charge of overseeing its implementation. The absence of a framework water legislation defining the basic principles governing access to, control, and provision of water has led to a situation where there is a multiplicity of ministries and departments which are directly or indirectly concerned with some aspects of water.
