Centre approves Rs 2,522.03 cr to implement Jal Jeevan Mission in Rajasthan

Ministry of Jal Shakti has been working with states in preparing a roadmap to implement the Union government’s flagship programme Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM), which aims to provide 55 ltr of potable water per person per day to every rural household of the country by 2024.
 
The state of Rajasthan presented the annual action plan on Jal Jeevan Mission to the Ministry.
 
Out of 1.1 crore rural households in the state, 12.36 lakh households have already been provided with tap connections (FHTCs). In 2019-20, 1.02 lakh tap connections were provided, while in 2020-21, the state is planning to enable 20.69 lakh households with tap water connections.
 
The Central government has approved a funding of Rs 2,522.03 crore for implementation of Jal Jeevan Mission in Rajasthan in 2020-21, which is an increase from Rs 1,051 crore in 2019-20.
 
With an opening balance of Rs 605.87 crore under JJM and Rs 389.2 crore under NWQSM component available for quality-affected areas with the state, and along with 2020-21 Central allocation and the state's matching share, a total of Rs 7,059.85 crore will be available for implementation of Jal Jeevan Mission in Rajasthan. 
 
The state has been asked for speedy implementation of the programme in terms of physical outputs, i.e. number of tap connections provided and commensurate financial progress, so that the state can avail additional funds based on the performance. 
 
The state plans to provide potable water to 57.77 lakh population residing in 5,864 villages affected by fluoride, salinity, nitrate and iron.
 
It has planned to provide potable water in all 3,700 fluoride affected habitations by December 2020. More emphasis is also given on universal coverage of water scarce areas, aspirational districts, SC/ST dominated villages and villages under Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY). 
 
As JJM is a decentralised, demand-driven, community-managed programme, the local village community/Gram Panchayats or user groups are to play key role in planning, implementation, management, operation and maintenance of water supply systems in villages to ensure long-term sustainability.
 
Of the total of 15th Finance Commission Grants to PRIs, 50 percent is to be spent on water and sanitation. The state will receive Rs 3,862 crore as FC Grants in 2020-21.
 
There is a need for convergence planning to be done by the state under various programmes like MGNREGS, SBM (G), 15th Finance Commission Grants to PRIs, District Mineral Development Fund, CAMPA, CSR Fund, Local Area Development Fund, etc at village level. For water quality surveillance activities, the Public Health Engineering Departments in the state has to engage with local community.
 
To achieve the objectives of the Mission to provide tap connection to each rural household in every habitation/village on long-term basis, skilled manpower like masonry, plumbing, fitting, electricity, etc is needed for creation of water supply schemes and their operation and maintenance.
 
The state has been asked to start works related to water supply and water conservation immediately in villages so as to provide employment to the local community and also ensure potable water in the households of rural people and boost rural economy.
