Is your Bore-well Registered?


This is not the first time Govt. of Karnataka asking you this question. 

As the notice was circulated an year ago by the Govt. to get your bore-well registered with the authority. This time it will be an alarming reminder for you.



Registering the bore-wells are declared as mandatory by Karnataka Government to around 12 districts & its 35 taluks as the places are recorded as overdrawing water. The effort to get the bore-wells registered was initiated by the government an year ago. But it looks like the message is not reached everyone yet.


KARNATAKA ACT NO 25 OF 2011



THE KARNATAKA GROUND WATER (REGULATION AND CONTROL OF DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT) ACT, 2011



Registration of existing users in the notified areas.- (1) Every existing user of groundwater in the notified area shall within a period of one hundred twenty days from the date of declaration as notified area by the Government shall apply to the authority for grant of a certificate of a registration recognizing its existing use in such form and in such manner as may be prescribed.

I don't know it is registered or not...!?

Don't remember about whereas you bore-well is registered or not? Simple first step to check that is, look into your Water Bill. If you find Rs.50 or more charged in front of "borewell charge", then you can say you bore-well is registered.

What if it is not registered..?
