  Purpose Driven Studies (PDS)

One of the main focuses of NHP is Research and Development (R & D) in the form of Purpose Driven Studies (PDSs). Considering the peculiarities and large variation in the nature of problems associated with water resources
planning and development, the issues involved in research related to particular region and specific project, the NHP is sponsoring research proposals of applied nature along with basic and action research. The research activities of such nature are implemented through R&D Section of NHP. PDSs are related to specific issues of water management problems identified within the area of operation of IAs and of public concern. Outcomes of the studies are expected to provide feasible and cost effective methodologies for replication in other areas situated in similar hydro-geological setup. The main role of R&D Section is to coordinate these activities and to review and monitor the progress of the PDSs.
