There is a huge loss of freshwater due to leakages and theft that are common during transportation to localities. Government subsidies allotted for water purification and supply are also being diverted and misused. A proper water tracking and management system is the need of the hour. The team from Vidya developed their project to solve the above problem and won the second prize in Smart India Hackathon 2018. The system shall detect such losses and alert the authorities in case of leakage or theft and thereby help the government minimize monetary losses.
