Abstract: Water is the most important replenishable natural resource for the survival of mankind. It is well known fact that standard of living of any society is measured by the rate of consumption of water. Needless to mention that insufficient and erratic water supply would cease regional development resulting in social, economical and political problems. Development of water resources is the surest and the shortest path towards poverty alleviation and improvement in quality of life. The present paper discusses the problem of availability and supply of water in Dhar and Jhabua districts of Madhya Pradesh (M.P.), a state of India and also deals with how water scarcity resulted in the deterioration of social conditions in the area. The later part of the paper presents the improvement in the situation due to timely actions taken by the Government of India as well as Govt. of M.P.
