Worldwide, annual water demand has been increased for different uses. This can be attributed to population expansion and the accompanying need to satisfy their water needs for domestic, agricultural, and industrial purposes. The situation has been becoming worst due to vulnerable and inefficient water supply systems. Rainwater harvesting (RWH) has been proved to be a sustainable option in solving the on-ground water shortage to a great extent. India has been facing the wrath of a water crisis for about a decade or two. The potential of RWH in India is more due to its geographical location and landscape. This paper aims at studying the impact of adopting RWH techniques as an artificial recharge option to evaluate groundwater table in the Joda town of India by analyzing the difference in water levels of the township throughout the past decade (2009-19). The study revealed the increase in the underground water level of the study area and established that RWH systems are crucial in arid regions to a large extent.
