Rajesh Pandit thanked Tata Steel for sensitising people on water conservation and said: “Small steps towards water conservation can help the society in a big way. I am sure that technical sessions on water management and conservation will bring in some positive changes in the community.”

Pankaj Satija said, “We need to put in our best to conserve water for a sustainable future. We also need to keep our river bodies clean not only for our survival but also for the survival of aquatic species.”
