Water And Arun Lakhani
Mr. Arun Lakhani the Chairman and Managing Director had a vision for
Vishvaraj Infrastructure Limited (VIL India) as he considered Water
Supply is a plan that needs to be worked on and developed for a billion+
citizens in India.
At Vishvaraj Infrastructure we see ourselves as social entrepreneurs
since Water, Waste Water and Transport; the sectors in which we have
built our status are closely interwoven with the lives of people. As
business, apart from value creation for share holders they also impact
happiness quotient of the people, thus contributing enormous satisfaction
to us for our life transforming work. The rapidly urbanizing Indian
population is expected to reach a figure close to 600 million urban
people by 2031. This massive transition is creating serious challenges
for urban planners and ULBs especially that of ensuring quality water
supply to these citizens. Indian cities have for long lived with
intermittent water supply systems riddled with a variety of problems
ranging from high levels of NRW to contamination issues.
The areas to be in focus in 24x7 water supply are as follows: NonRevenue Water ranging from 50 to 75%, Water supply coverage only
about 64%, Intermittent Supply & Poor billing mechanism. As a solution
to this situation several reforms have been initiated by the government
which include introduction of performance linked PPP contracts, up
gradation of existing ageing assets, 100% metering and efficient
operation and maintenance of the supply system. Vishvaraj
Infrastructure Ltd. provides global solutions that contribute to
sustainable development in the water sector through innovation in the
design, building and operation of drinking water treatment plants,
distribution system reforms, etc.
