50% water lost in transition

New Delhi: It’s the poor distribution network and not shortage as thought earlier that creates water scarcity in urban India.  According to the ‘Alternative Urban Futures Report’, collated by Worldwide Fund for Nature, almost 50% of water produced in the capital gets lost in the distribution network.
