Centre allocates over Rs 7000 crore grant to Maharashtra for current FY to provide tap water supply to rural households under JJM

Centre has allocated more than Rs seven thousand crore grant to Maharashtra for the current financial year to provide tap water supply to rural households under Jal Jeevan Mission.

Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat has assured full assistance to the State for making provision of tap water supply in every rural home by 2024. He said, at the start of this mission in 2019, out of a total of 19.20 crore rural households in the country, only 3.23 crore had tap water supply. During the last 21 months, despite COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns disruptions, 4.27 crore households have been provided with piped water connections. Goa, Telangana, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Puducherry have achieved 100 per cent household tap connection in rural areas and has become ‘Har Ghar Jal’.

In Maharashtra, out of a total of 142 lakh rural households, around 91 lakh households have been provided with tap water connections. At the time of launch of Jal Jeevan Mission, only 48 lakh households had tap water supply. During the last 21 months, around 43 lakh households in the State have been provided tap water connections. In the current financial year, Maharashtra has planned to provide tap water connections to more than 27 lakh households.
