Government announces “Safe Drinking Water” for its offices

Ministry of Science and Technology announced its own brand of mineral water called “Safe drinking water”. It will be sold at Rs 1 per litre to government offices including PM house, Parliament and GHQ in initial phase of the project and later it will be introduced to general public.

Pakistan Council of Research and Water resources (PCRWR) has collected water samples from different parts of the country to measure salt quantities so private companies may establish plants in these areas with easy loans given by the government.

According to Unicef report 70 percent of Pakistani households drink contaminated water. If government succeeds in producing cheap quality drinking water for public it will reduce diseases such as Diarrhea and Hepatitis. UNDP report below shows that Pakistan has reached stress level in availability of clean water
