I wish to know if there is any legal hurdle / requirements  in case i wish to dig a borewell for self consumption in my residence located in Dehradun? If yes, what all permissions are required to be taken for the same and from which authorities? Kindly advice regarding the same as it will help me prepare accordingly.

Dear Praveen Chhabra,

The legislation issue for boring wells had been brewing up with the state government. You may contact Uttarakhand Jal Sansthan/Jal Nigam for the latest on the issue.
