As temperatures rise in summer, cities and towns across India are increasingly facing water shortages. Delhi’s Sanjay Camp slum is one such locality where thousands have to depend on water tankers to meet their daily water requirements.

Experts blame depleting water table, climate change, ageing infrastructure and inadequate planning for the water scarcity. Watch the video.
