The "Jal Jeevan Mission" plan has been underway for nearly four years, with one year left to accomplish its objective. During this period, only 44% of the households in the state have received access to a reliable water supply. The mission aims to provide piped water supply to 1.6 crore households in the state, and as of now, it has successfully reached 4.7 lakh households with this essential resource. In the Udaipur district, approximately 25% of households have access to water supply. The district's goal is to provide piped water supply to 5.67 lakh households, and as of now, it has reached 1.41 lakh households with this essential service.
In the state, the district of Bhilwara stands out as the top-performing area, with approximately 70% of households, which amounts to 3.13 lakh households out of 4.45 lakh, having been connected to the water supply network. On the contrary, Banswara district has the lowest coverage, where only 16% of households have access to water connections. The objective is to provide water supply to 3.81 lakh households in this district, but as of now, it has reached only 63,000 households.
The Jal Jeevan Mission (Rural) aims to provide a daily supply of 55 liters of water per person. On the other hand, the Jal Jeevan Mission (Urban) focuses on ensuring access to piped water and sewerage connections and the restoration of water bodies. This initiative is being implemented nationwide. As part of the Jal Jeevan Mission, the government plans to train young individuals from nearby Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) and polytechnics to serve in rural areas as plumbers and masons, helping maintain drinking water schemes.
