The study attempts to investigate public awareness about water related issues and the water use practices among the inhabitants of West Bengal. For a just appraisal of the topic, a questionnaire with Likert items was prepared to collect data and administered through both the offline and online mode; the demographic data were also collected following the same procedures. Data were collected from 107 inhabitants and analysed accordingly to ponder over required trend. The demographic variables, although collected, are not important in this case as the participants are mostly from the Ganges basin of West Bengal, specially in the district of North 24 parganas.
