India: Government to Rope in an Independent Agency for Jal Jeevan Mission Survey to Monitor Access, Quality of Drinking Water in Villages

In a major push to the ongoing Jal Jeevan Mission, the government has decided to rope in an independent agency for a nationwide survey to monitor the implementation of its flagship scheme to provide potable drinking water to every household in all six lakh villages.

The survey ‘Jal Jeevan Survekshan 2023’ launched by Jal Shakti Ministry will assess the functionality of household tap-water connections in all villages, check if they are receiving 55 litres per capita per day (lpcd) of water on regular basis and whether the quality of water is of prescribed standard. It will also evaluate if the water source is sustainable in the long run. The survey will cover public institution buildings such as schools, Anganwadi, Gram Panchayat, public health as well as wellness centers in villages in all 34 states and Union Territories.
