This paper is an attempt to examine India’s water security in the present scenario of its fast dwindling water resources and aggressive posturing by China which plans to subvert Brahmaputra waters. This paper critically examines the treaties that India has so far entered into with its neighbors regarding the use of its transboundary river waters, their applicability to the water sharing conflict with China, various doctrines including the Helsinki Rules and the UN Convention of 1997, how they have been adhered to and used by different countries as well as how they can be invoked to meet India’s water security.
