SWASTIIK is a new technology that disinfects water by boiling it via cavitation (pressure reduction) and adding natural oils having antimicrobial properties. It was developed by scientists in CSIR-NCL Pune with the help of the Water Technology Initiative of the DST.

This technology is expected to eliminate the drawbacks of conventional methods like chlorination that are found to cause harmful health effects. It will provide safe and healthy drinking water at low cost. It was found to be able to completely eliminate gram-negative E-coli and gram positive S.aureus bacteria as well as AMR bacteria within 5 to 10 minutes.
