The maximum consumer of water among the given options in India is the (d) Thermal power industry.

Thermal power plants require large amounts of water for cooling purposes in their operations. Water is used as a coolant in the power generation process, particularly in thermal power plants that rely on steam turbines. The water is heated and turned into steam, which drives the turbines to generate electricity. Afterward, the steam needs to be condensed back into water, and this condensation process requires a significant amount of water.
