Jal Jeevan Mission: Tap water connection provided to over 4 crore rural homes

The efforts of states and union territories (UTs) have helped Jal Jeevan Mission provide assured tap water supply to every family living in 56 districts and over 86,000 villages.

The government on Monday said over 4 crore rural households have been provided tap water supply under the ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the scheme on August 15, 2019 to provide tap water supply to every rural home by 2024.

“Now, 7.24 crore (38 per cent) i.e. more than 1/3rd of rural households are getting potable water through taps. Goa has become the first state in the country to provide 100 per cent tap water supply followed by Telangana and Andaman & Nicobar Islands,” a release said.

The efforts of states and union territories (UTs) have helped Jal Jeevan Mission provide assured tap water supply to every family living in 56 districts and over 86,000 villages, it said.

States and UTs are now competing with each other and focusing on the target to ensure that every household in the country gets safe drinking water.
