Sale of STP Treated Water : Legality?

Hello Everyone,

When we set up a Sewage Treatment Plant ,the treated water we get is mostly drained since mostly the requirement for recycled water is limited to horticulture,HVAC and flushing(provided the establishment has dual piping).My question is if I maintained all the parameters in STP Treated Water as per govt norms Is it legal to sell that water outside of that establishment to other organizations which require water for horticulture or for HVACs?

Is there any law against selling that water in India??

thanks & regards,

Tarun Joshi,
