The ground water resources has been depleting at an alarming pace in many parts of the country. Ground water resources play a major role in ensuring livelihood security across the universe, this is more so in countries which are mostly dependent an agriculture. The expenditure on the water supply services has been increasing over the years, but the desired healthy benefits are not commensurate. So there is a dire need to solve the twin problem of sustainability of water resources and water quality. A national level programmed of ground water management is needed to address the challenging task of over exploitation of this natural resource. The paper reviews the ground water utilization in selected states of India. The states affected by various water quality and water related diseases are also reviewed upon. Ground water overuse and deteriorating water quality problems have to be addressed using different strategies.
