Union Minister of Jal Shakti Gajendra Singh Shekhawat Thursday held a review meeting with chief minister of Nagaland Neiphiu Rio through video conference to discuss progress of Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) implementation in the State. JJM is under implementation in partnership with States to provide drinking water to every rural household of the country.

Taking to twitter, Shekhawat stated that Nagaland was aiming to provide 100% tap connections to every household by 2024. “Held a joint review meeting with CM Nagaland, @Neiphiu_Rio ji through VC today & discussed on the progress of implementation of #JalJeevanMission in the State. Nagaland aims to become 100% #HarGharJal State with every household having a tap connection by 2024,” Shekhawat tweeted.

JJM’s vision is to ensure that every rural household has drinking water supply in adequate quantity of prescribed quality on regular and long-term basis at affordable service delivery charges leading to improvement in living standards of rural communities. To assist, empower and facilitate States in implementation of the participatory rural water supply strategy, water security & building water infrastructure, the ministry is reviewing the progress regularly.

JJM plans to holistically address the challenges, viz. depleting water sources, increasing water quality-issues, lack of in-village infrastructure, poor Operation & Maintenance, lack of resource efficiency, etc.

The mission is not just about creating physical infrastructure but also forging partnerships with various organizations for smooth implementation of JJM. Therefore, the ministry has sought interest from foundations, trusts, NGOs, community based organizations, VOs, etc. to work closely with the mission as ‘Sector Partner’.
