About Jal Jeevan Mission –

  • The JJM was announced by the Prime Minister in 2019 which aims to provide tap water connections to 18 Crore rural households of the country by the year 2024.
  • Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) envisages supply of 55 litres of water per person per day to every rural household through Functional Household Tap Connections (FHTC) by 2024.
  • It aims at creation of local infrastructure for source sustainability measures as mandatory elements, like rainwater harvesting, groundwater recharge and management of household wastewater for reuse, would be undertaken in convergence with other government programmes/schemes.
  • Funding Pattern: The fund sharing pattern between the Centre and states is 90:10 for Himalayan and North-Eastern States, 50:50 for other states, and 100% for Union Territories (Jal Jeevan Mission is a central sector scheme).
  • This ambitious scheme is benefitting all the states as the States/ UTs are working hard to ensure every rural household gets water tap connection.
  • For the implementation of JJM, following institutional arrangement has been proposed – National Jal Jeevan Mission (NJJM) at the Central level, State Water and Sanitation Mission (SWSM) at the State level, District Water and Sanitation Mission (DWSM) at the District level, Village Water Sanitation Committee (VWSC) at Village level.
