Today we even don’t drink tap water because it definitely contains some harmful viruses and bacteria and due to this we mainly prefer to drink AURO water. There is a report from the NITI Ayog named water management composite index released in 2018 which states that in India around 85% of the rural areas don’t have taps in their home which is very shocking. People living in these regions have to travel some distance in order to get drinkable water. So the water they get for drinking purposes is not of good quality.

What is Jal Jeevan Mission?

Jal Jeevan Mission is basically the mission in which the government is trying to provide piped water at home. As its name said Jal means water and Jeevan means life. We all know how much water is important for us and without water life does not exist on Earth. As day by day, the ground-level water is decreasing which becomes a cause for tension among the government. Though water is present in excess amounts on the Earth drinkable water is present in a limited amount. The government launched this scheme to create awareness among the people about water.

Cities under Jal Jeevan Mission

This report also claims that around 75% of the houses that are drinking water are not of good quality. It also states that in future about 21 cities can face Day Zero.

DAY ZERO = Day Zero basically means in the future a city will not have a single drop of drinking water and their water availability will become zero. So the day when water availability for drinking will become zero is known as DAY ZERO. Cities like Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai etc are lying in Day Zero.

Launch Year and Ministry of the scheme

Jal Jeevan Mission was launched in the year 2019 it is regulated by the Ministry of Jal Shakti and it is a centre-sponsored scheme. This scheme was the initiative of the central government.

Funding Pattern of the scheme

Aim of the Jal Jeevan Mission

The main aim of the scheme is to provide the facility of safe and adequate drinkable water to each household in 2024 in rural areas. Pay attention to this scheme is mainly launched to provide water facilities in the rural areas as urban areas are already well piped. The quantity of water should also meet the demand of the area as it should not happen that the water is very pure and drinkable but it is very less than the demand of the people living in a public area so the government also put check on it.

The vision of the Scheme

The main vision of the scheme is:

  1. To provide the adequate amount of water demanded in the particular region,
  2. The quality of the water should also be good means the water which is provided must be drinkable,
  3. As the water that the government is providing under this scheme will not be free of cost but government definitely put on the check that water must be affordable and reasonable to the rural areas.

How the Quality of the Water will be checked under the Jal Jeevan Mission?

Under the Jal Jeevan Mission government will provide purely safe drinking water which must be of good quality. To check the quality of water basically, the ASHA workers, Aganwadi workers or you can say other PRI etc all have quality checks which are performed in the laboratory of the Field Test Kit. On random bases, the water is picked up and checked in the lab to identify the quality of the water. So these all things must be assured by the government that not only the water but the good quality of water will be provided to the needy people.

Institutional Arrangement

There are many institutes that are establishing better functionality of the scheme at different levels,

  1. At the Centre level, we have the National Jal Jeevan Mission (NJJM).
  2. At the state level, we have the State Water and Sanitation Mission (SWNM).
  3. At the district level, we have District Water and Sanitation Mission (DMSM).
  4. At the village level, we have Village Water Sanitation Committee (VWSC).

Key Features of the Jal Jeevan Scheme

  1. Under this scheme, 55 litres of water per person per day to every rural household with the help of a tap connection, and this thing is ensured by the Functional Household Tap Connection (FHTC) by 2024.
  2. Integrated demand and supply side management of water at the local levels could be achieved by using the Grey Side management.
Note: Demand Side Management means the demand for water that would be managed or controlled by the individual. For example, a person wants some water to wash the utensils and also extra water for watering the plants. But this thing can be managed by a person by washing the utensils and using the same water for watering the plants through which he/she has washed the utensils. So that's how the Demand Side can be managed.
Supply Side Management means the different methods that can be used to supply water with less expenditure and that water must meet the demand.
Grey Water Management means water which is not drinkable but it is not totally wasted also so it can be used for other purposes still.
  1. To aware people with extensive education and communication to make them aware of the need for water and how to conserve it. Also, JAN ANDOLAN means to create a movement by the public regarding the saving of water. So that we have long-term sustainability of the water.
