Nagpur : Diageo in partnership with Government of Maharashtra donated 7 Water ATMs to address the prevailing water scarcity and contaminated water issues in Nagpur. Shri. Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Hon’ble Minister for Energy, New & Renewable Energy and State Excise, Government of Maharashtra, inaugurated these water ATMs across seven villages in Nagpur – Khat, Chirawah, Gowari, Tarsa, Dhanla, Mohadi and Aaroli. 

These Water ATMs provide an affordable source of drinking water at just Rs. 5 for 20 litres as against Rs. 15-20/litre sold in packaged bottles to the villagers. It is a convenient option for remote areas where water pipelines do not reach and branded bottled waters are not an alternative. 

Provided by a city based company Rite Water Solutions, the Water ATMs ensure clean and pure drinking water for the healthy lives of the villagers and the towns. The water from these ATMs can also be used for cooking food, which protects the people from contracting water-borne diseases like cholera and TB. 

The ATMs will source water from bore wells provided by the gram panchayat and will be processed through reverse osmosis (RO) and ultraviolet purifiers. The villagers are provided prepaid ATM like cards which can be utilized at these machines. Additionally, these machines are being handed over to women's self-help groups for maintenance and also as an extra source of income. 

Diageo India is strongly committed to building thriving communities through providing solutions for security, health and education empowering people across India. Through these programmes, communities now can endeavour to have access to water management practices, improved hygiene and “open defecation free” areas in their villages.
