They have been compelled to drink the water from the well and with no options to purify the water, the villagers are using cloth.Wedding ceremonies requires the villagers to go to Delhi as the unclean well water cannot suffice. Without adequate water, even the buffaloes have become weak and the villagers are forced to lug carts in the village.In an attempt to provide aid for the villagers, authorities have started taking measures to tap the declining groundwater table.

"We have drilled a deep bore and have found water at the depth of 600 meters. Now we will fit a submersible pump inside it, probably by tomorrow. We have also selected a point for a hand pump," Ajaz Khan, the Sub-Divisional Officer, Public Health and Engineering Department, Chhatarpur told news agency ANI.
