Making drinking water equitable.

Water technology that transcends barriers and connects to those who need it most.

2008 was an interesting year. Facebook, iPhone and many other technologies were coming into focus. Our goal was to make application of solar energy for water available to all. Water ATM ® was born from this.

Over the years, we have taken Water ATM  ® as a concept for economically viable and energy independent distributed system of drinking water. Today, thousands of Water ATM  ® are installed with the concept itself taking root deeply and firmly.


hand crafted by technology

Each Water ATM ® is made by our team locally in India. We have a DSIR (Department of Science and Industrial Research, Government of India) accredited R&D lab with multiple patents.

We stress on importance of building and designing locally. This helps us get one of industry’s best service records. We have service network present in over 17 states of India.


technology of tomorrow, today for all

From the beginning we work to bring cutting edge technology for making water accessible. From online remote monitoring to data analytics led machine learning algorithms. The question we ask is how do we take latest breakthrough and take it to the masses.

Swajal was created from the UNDP (United Nations Development Program) ACE (Access To Clean Energy). This was a challenge to bring clean energy to masses. One of our first project was to install solar powered Water ATM in rural Uttar Pradesh.
