The National Water Resources Council Friday approved the new National Water Policy with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying legal structures on water were inadequate and calling for judicious use of the resource.
The policy proposes to have a national legal framework on water issues which the state government have been opposing since the draft was put in public domain in January, this year.
Under pressure from states, the Centre has put out a fresh draft of the National Water Policy.
Responding to the objections, the Water Resources Ministry has agreed to re-draft the provision to "remove the impression".
