It was because of their foresight that Mewar has rich culture, system of educational institutions, water management systems, schemes to conserve heritage structures, and conservation of the environment.Continuing this legacy, Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar, Director Chairmen and Management Managing Trustee, Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation, Udaipur, has kept a keen eye on these activities and included them in as top priority.
The 76th custodian of the Royal House of Mewar Shriji Arvind Singhji Mewar, not only has a fondness towards art and culture, but also has a deeply rooted sense of responsibility towards the conservation of the environment. He has dedicated his life towards keeping the noble principles and ideologies of the great House of Mewar alive by putting them in front of the common people. Under his able and skilled direction, Mewar has reached the hearts of the people across the globe.

To spread the word and awareness about conservation a workshop on risk management and conservation was successfully held at the City Palace of Udaipur. The Maharana Mewar Charitable Foundation has also extended their mission to states like Maharashtra, Gujarat and Delhi, and very instrumental in highlighting issues like water conservation and rainwater harvesting. The foundation has not only contributed to the cleaning of the old water bodies but has simultaneously aided financially towards the cleaning of the dried lakes and rivers of the city and interlinking of rivers.
Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar said, “Water management and conservation is the need of the hour today. If this problem persists, the day is not far when we will have to import water for daily use. Interlinking of rivers is not the solution or option to this but, the citizens should learn to manage and conserve the water already available to use. Water Justice is the need of the day” while expressing his concern over this serious issue.
