Overview

Piramal Sarvajal is a mission driven social enterprise which designs and deploys innovative solutions for creating affordable access to safe drinking water in underserved areas.

Piramal Sarvajal has designed and deployed decentralized community level drinking water set-ups which provide 24x7 access even in remote rural areas. Piramal Sarvajal sets up community level solutions that are locally operated but centrally managed on a market based pay per use system. Sarvajal is purification technology agnostic, leveraging cloud based technology for greater operational oversight. As such, its initiatives are low cost and high impact.

India has more than 6 lakh villages with population density varying from a lakh to a few hundreds. This brings its own set of challenges towards ensuring viability of the water set-up. Piramal Sarvajal has developed varying models keeping in mind these challenges.
