Dr. Pervaiz Amir declared Pakistan a harshly water-stressed country bcuz groundwater is not regulated here. He said world over bottled water business is discouraged, but in Pakistan they are finding space and pay zero or marginal cost for groundwater extraction to sell our water to us on hefty price.
