Assam presented its annual action plan for consideration and approval of Ministry of Jal Shakti. 
The government of India approved Rs 1,407 crore for 2020-21 under Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM). In 2020-21, the state plans to provide tap connections to 13 lakh households out of total 63 lakh.
The state is giving emphasis on capitalising on low-hanging fruits i.e. in villages/habitations where piped water supply schemes already exist to yield desired results.
The state plans to immediately provide household tap connections to all remaining households belonging to weaker and marginalised sections on priority. 
Strengthening of the existing drinking water sources for long-term sustainability of drinking water supply systems through convergence of various programmes like MGNREGS, SBM (G), 15th Finance Commission Grants to PRIs, District Mineral Development Fund, CAMPA, Local Area Development Fund, etc at village level is planned for judicious use of all available resources.
While planning, thrust is given on covering households in quality-affected habitations, aspirational districts, SC/ ST dominated villages/habitations, Sansad Adarsh Gramin Yojana villages, etc on priority.
Also, local village community/ Gram Panchayats and its sub-committee/user groups are being involved in planning, implementation, management, operation and maintenance of water supply systems in villages to ensure long-term sustainability. 
In the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, the state government is taking up water supply works in villages to provide household tap connections, which will help in practicing social distancing, and will additionally help local people in getting employment and boost rural economy.
Migrant labourers’ skilled and semi-skilled services can be utilised by providing jobs related to water supply especially plumbing, fitting, water conservation works, among others in every village to ensure sufficient groundwater availability leading to water security, water availability for agriculture and will help in provision of drinking water to every rural household.
Jal Jeevan Mission was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2019 and aims to provide tap water connections to 18 crore rural households of the country by 2024.
