  1. The Karnataka government must contain the deaths
    in the open wells by passing a law for safety purpose,
    with a well engineered concept of keeping the mouth
    of any open well, closed as well ventilated with a solid
    tubular or angled aluminium structural frame mesh,
    with an opening at the location of the overhead pulley
    from where it should be feasible to draw water from
    the well. This should apply to all homes and building
    societies and farms, with a 12 months lead time frame
    given for adhering to this new law and it’s implementation.

    In this manner, many lives can be save of those who
    willfully jump in the open well to die, or those whose
    evil intention is to kill someone by dumping in the open
    well, or for those who could accidentally fall in the open
