Abstract: Year by year the water is becoming the scare source all over the world. Water resources available on earth are in the two forms namely surface water and ground water. According to the study of scientist the total volume of the ground water is very less as compared to the total water available in the globe. There are many areas in our country that are facing scarcity of water, and this is due to the no proper planning of the ground water development, results in the fall of water levels, drying of wells, etc. The over exploration of ground water in certain parts of the country may also leads in the lowering of ground water table, and this requires the scientific resource management and conservation. The source of water available below the surface of earth and that can be used as the prime source of water for water supply system majorly for agriculture, and also used for domestic and commercial uses. Groundwater has crucial importance and value for human life and economic development. The ground water has major contribution in the earth’s water circulatory system known as hydrologic cycle.Keeping in mind the growing rate of the population and as result of it the needs of the society could not be satisfied by the available surface water resources. Thus the man has started massive search of water resources. Such massive mining of ground water has leads to drastic decline of ground water table. Thus the ground water has become the precious resources for the agriculture and domestic use. Hence in order to ensure a sensible use of ground water the proper evaluation and management is required.
