Water is essential for the environment, for ensuring agriculture growth and for ensuring food security. Rainwater harvesting is a technique to utilise and store precious water that otherwise would go waste. We estimate the quantity of water that can be harvested by Indira Paryavaran Bhawan which comes out to be 26,37,230 Litres. The research use Mean Annual Rainfall, Catchment area and Rainfall run-off coefficient to calculate the rainwater that can be harvested.

Keywords: Rainwater Harvesting, Catchment Area, Runoff Coefficient.
