NAL SE JAL SCHEME

 Since August, 2019, to make provision of potable tap water supply to every rural household of the country, including those of Rajasthan, by 2024, Government of India in partnership with States is implementing Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM).

At the time of announcement of Jal Jeevan Mission, out of 18.93 Crore rural households, 3.23 Crore (17%) households were reported to have tap water connections. So far, 5.67 Crore (29.3%) rural households have been provided with tap water connections in last 29 months. Thus, as of date, out of 19.28 Crore rural households in the country, 8.90 Crore (46.2%) households are reported to have tap water supply in their homes. The State/ UT & year-wise status of tap water connection in rural households, including those of Rajasthan is annexed.

To develop smart measurement and monitoring water supply through sensor based IoT system, a grand challenge has been launched in partnership with the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY). So far, 115 locations across the country have been identified for installation of Sensor based IoT system on pilot basis, out of which 16 IoT pilots are in Rajasthan. The location-wise details of already implemented projects including those in Rajasthan, is in public domain and available on JJM dashboard at:

https://ejalshakti.gov.in/jjmreport/JJMIndia.aspx

Jal Jeevan Mission is being implemented as a decentralized, demand-driven and community-managed programme, wherein the Gram Panchayat and/ or its sub-committee/ user group i.e. Village Water & Sanitation Committee (VWSC)/ Pani Samiti are being empowered to plan, implement, manage, operate and maintain in-village water supply system to provide regular and assured tap water supply in rural households.

Under JJM, to enable the local village community to play their role in planning, implementation and to shoulder the responsibility of operation and maintenance, provision for skilling to create masons, plumbers, fitters, electricians, motor mechanics, pump operators, etc., is made. Further, provision has also been made to empanel local NGOs/ CBOs/ SHGs/ VOs, etc. as Implementation Support Agencies (ISAs) by States/ UTs for handholding local village community and VWSCs/ Pani Samitis.

 For long-term sustainability of water supply system, provision has been made in the Operational guidelines for the implementation of JJM that every village is to prepare a 5-year Village Action Plan (VAP) which inter alia includes developing or augmenting local drinking water source(s); grey-water treatment & reuse; etc. in convergence with other schemes such as MGNREGS, 15th Finance Commission tied grant to rural local bodies/ PRIs, District Mineral Development Fund, CSR fund, etc. Further, 15th Finance Commission has recommended tied grants to RLBs/ PRIs of Rs. 1.42 lakh Crore during 2021-22 to 2025-26 for water & sanitation, which inter alia includes rainwater harvesting, water recycling.

 Since 2019, Government of India has launched Jal Shakti Abhiyan (JSA) to bring awareness and focus on water conservation. Important measures taken by the Central Government for conservation, management of ground water and effective implementation of rainwater harvesting in the country are available in public domain at:
