India is third on the list, with 82.4 percent of the tap water contaminated. A recent study on the quality of tap water in 21 Indian capital cities has found that tap water available in most of those cities cannot be consumed. Among the 21 state capitals, only piped water samples taken from Mumbai passed the quality standards set for tap water, as per the study.
The report on the quality of piped drinking water in the country was released on Saturday by Ram Vilas Paswan, the Union Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution.
