Haryana Achieves 100% Water Connectivity Milestone under Jal Jeevan Mission

Haryana Achieves 100% Water Connectivity Milestone under Jal Jeevan Mission : Rajeev Chandrasekhar 

In a comprehensive assessment of the progress of the Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM), Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar (Union Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Electronics and Information Technology, and Jal Shakti) conducted a thorough review in Raghunathpura and Chanduwas villages of Rewari District, Haryana.

Throughout the day, Rajeev Chandrasekhar engaged with the authorities overseeing the District Water and Sanitation Mission, interacted with members of the Village Water & Sanitation Committee, and visited the homes of several residents. The minister highlighted the remarkable success of JJM in Haryana, particularly in model villages like Raghunathpura and Chanduwas, where 100% water connectivity to all households has been achieved.

Acknowledging the impactful collaboration between the Centre and State Governments, Mr. Chandrasekhar expressed how this partnership has transformed lives. He commended the people and authorities of Haryana for demonstrating effective governance, showcasing the synergy of the Centre and State working together as a Double Engine for the community's betterment.

During his interactions, the Minister stated, “Hon’ble PM Narendra Modi ji’s vision of Har Ghar Jal is deeply impacting the lives of Indians. It was wonderful to meet with people of the villages Raghunathpur & Chanduwas in Rewari today and know about their transformation story. For 7 decades, women in these villages endured the drudgery of trekking miles to fetch water for their household needs, standing in long queues for hours every day for a mere drop of water. With Haryana achieving its targets in 2022, this longstanding hardship came to an end in just 3 years. Women now spend more time with their families as they get clean drinking water of prescribed quality. Haryana has set an example of how the Centre and State Govt can work as Double Engine to achieve the unprecedented feat of connecting all rural households with water in just 3 years, something that couldn’t be achieved over decades.”

The Minister also inspected the water works management system in the villages, which efficiently facilitates water supply. Several women from these villages expressed gratitude to the Narendra Modi Government for resolving the persistent water problem that plagued their communities for decades.

The Jal Jeevan Mission, operating with speed and scale, has significantly increased rural tap connection coverage from 3.23 Crore households in August 2019 to an impressive 13 crore in just four years. The relentless efforts of the Union and State governments have also ensured tap water supply in 88.73% of schools and 84.69% of Anganwadi centers nationwide.

Embodying the motto of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas aur Sabka Prayas, the Jal Jeevan Mission is advancing towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6, providing safe and affordable water to all, by delivering safe water through taps to households, schools, anganwadis, and other public institutions in rural areas.
