WHAT IS RAINWATER HARVESTING
Rainwater harvesting is collection and storage of rainwater that runs off roof tops, open grounds and roads. The water can be either be stored or recharged into the ground water.
The NMMC in 2008 made it mandatory for all buildings standing on plots measuring 300 sqm and above to set up a rainwater harvesting unit.
As per the rules, if any builder fails to comply with the rule, occupancy certificate will be withheld.
