In fast-growing cities, the dependence on groundwater has been increased for household requirements and irrigation with the onset of the Green Revolution. This depends on the intensive use of inputs such as groundwater to boost farm production and to take care of population requirements. Private groundwater extraction for farming and drinking as well has been facilitated by policymakers in developing countries. Under exhaustive extraction of groundwater, falling groundwater tables may demand to explore precise groundwater investigation techniques. An instrument developed based on Light Interference technique (LIT) viz. NaAvmeter was proposed in the present study to explore the groundwater in less expenses and with precise measurement. This study investigated successfully a possibility of borewell location using NaAvmeter for irrigation and drinking purpose. The use of NaAvmeter exhibits encouraging results for identifying exact borewell location.
