Writing in India Water Portal, Makarand Purohit looks at “what's wrong with water privatization?” and at its history. “The drive to privatize the water sector in India accelerated after the year 2000, when the Government of India adopted various reforms suggested by international financial institutions like the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank.” Water law expert Pradeep Purandare says "the public-private partnerships in India have so far failed to improve water services in the country, and there is no private sector regulation act and rules to regulate the functioning of the private sector."
