Jhods/Johads have lost their existence and cultural significance due to the rapid urbanization and unregulated water resource exploitation. What we all as a society failed to realize is that these water bodies were acting as natural major recharge grounds for groundwater. Now most of the ponds in Haryana are either dry or have sewerage water flowing in them. On the other side, we are highly dependent on ground-water for our day to day consumption and agriculture. According to a study from Revenue Records and GIS mapping done by Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority, the number of water bodies in the district has been reduced from 644 to 124 in the last six decades (1994 - 2019).
