Centre has allocated Rs. 9,262 crore as central grant for North East states under Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) during financial year 2021-22, the Ministry of Jal Shakti informed on Wednesday.

The ministry said that the enhanced allocation and release of funds at this challenging time to provide tap water connections to rural homes in North East States was expected to boost the economy of the region.

Union Minister of Jal Shakti, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, would be chairing a one-day Conference of Public Health Engineering Department (PHED) Ministers of North-Eastern States on Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) at Assam Administrative Staff College, Guwahati on September 16, 2021. 

The conference would discuss planning, implementation and progress made so far as well as the way forward so all remaining households in North-Eastern States get tap water connections at the earliest.

JJM is a flagship programme of Union Government being implemented by Department of Drinking Water & Sanitation (DDWS), Ministry of Jal Shakti in partnership with States, to make provision of tap water connection to every rural household across country by 2024. The fund sharing pattern between Centre and State is 90:10 for NE States.
