The effects of Industrialisation:

1. The pollutions namely air, water, thermal and Noise pollution are all caused due to industries. Hence, this fact cannot be overlooked and must be worked upon.

2. The pollutions have degraded the atmosphere and have led to global warming.

4. The health hazards have started deteriorating human capital.

5. Contaminated water has produced many deathly viruses.

The effects could be reduced simultaneously by the Industries:

1. The industries could minimize water usage and could reuse the water by recycling.

2. Rainwater harvesting to store the rainwater.

3. Treating hot water effluents before discharging into water bodies.

4. Less drawing of groundwater.
