Non-profitable project in India for selling water in schools


Hello. I would like to know what are the requirements for selling water in Delhi, especially if the water is non-packaged. Also because we are working on a non-profitable project (we want to provide cheap and clean water in a school), i would be interested in knowing if there is any specific regulation?

There are detailed guidelines issued by the Central Ground Water Authority for the issuance of a Non-Objection Certificate for ground water withdrawal that you would have to comply with in order to set up a water-extraction plant/ pump/ tubewell. Regarding private supply of the non-potable water you may have extracted, there are no specific guidelines that may come in your way - However, you would require to enter into supply agreements that could be helped with.

If you wish to do this work on a nonprofit basis then either establish a section 8 company under company act 2013 or a NGO duly registered under society registration act. Further to this you need to get yourself registered under tax procedural laws of India to comply with the tax laws of India.
As far as regulations relating to water selling is concerned then you can do it by two ways - 1. Have a company of your own for water packaging and distribution and get license from the government for the same. But then this would fall under profitable business, 2. Get permission from MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) to sell water in school by way of tanker or otherwise as you won't be selling the packaged drinking water in this case.
