Smart Water Management By 11 Mins Read

In this modernized era, we can access anything in our comfort zone. At the same time, there are few things where we cannot get easy access like pure drinking water. About seventy-one percent of the Earth’s part is concealed by water. Nearly ninety-seven percent is immersed in the oceans. This is the main reason for the existence of salty water. We cannot use salty water for agricultural purposes, as it affects growth. Earth covers about three percent of freshwater. Fresh water is also not easily accessible for crop irrigation or drinking purposes. In India, we still have to travel more to carry water for drinking and washing. To ingest water easily, the Government of India introduced the JJM scheme. JJM stands for Jal Jeevan Mission

A closer view

Jal Jeevan Mission is a reorganized and enhanced version of NRDWP (National Rural Drinking Water Programme). The Indian Government has reoriented NRDWP into JJM (Jal Jeevan Mission). The JJM program was established on August 15, 2019. JJM desires to build Jan Andolan, initiating it a top-notch priority for the urban household in India. The deputation is an important section of the Jal Shakti Ministry that includes the local ministry for the execution of the scheme. The main target of Jal Jeevan Mission is to provide 50-60 litres of water to every urban household through FHTC in another two years. It focuses on water conservation and rainwater harvesting. They concentrate on the implementation of watercourses and the renovation of traditional & other standard water bodies. 

JJM is an exclusive central government drive that comes under the ministry of Jal Shakti. It targets to assure the ingress of piped water for every domestic purpose in our country. In the year 2019, in most residential places there was no direct access to piped water. The main goal of JJM is to provide sufficient water for every household for another two years. The recent Government budget meeting exclaimed an important programme that forms an integral part of JJM. 

The main aim of this programme is to execute a list of sustainability measures like rainwater harvesting, water conservation preservation, Grey Water Management, etc. The JJM relies on water community approaches & methodologies. The major key components of JJM are reliable data, education, and target on the future generation, assuring safe drinking water, tap water supply, and well-defined communication. JJM is meant for every people’s campaign for water and it is also their top-notch priority. 

Recent water crisis

Recent water crisis

In this present era, we are facing a crucial water crisis. A recent report exclaims that most cities in India can suffer from serious water predicament. In another few years, there will be no drinking water in metropolitan cities like Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Delhi. Nearly seventy-five percent of the households do not possess proper drinking water. On the other side of the flip, nearly eighty-four percent of the rural domestic community do not have direct piped water access connections. There is no proper pipeline system throughout major cities. 

Earlier steps & present plan

In 1972, the Central Government initially established the Accelerated Rural Water Supply Programme. Again in 2009, this programme was renamed NRDWP. The NRDWP stands for National Rural Drinking Water Programme. Here, the fund is shared between the Central and State Governments. The main objective of NDRDWP is to automate drinking water for every household. By 2030, it is expected that goal will be achieved seamlessly. As of now, the Government of India is planning to achieve the goal through JJM. Nearly 18 Crores of rural households are having direct piped water connections. 

Detailed information about JJM

Our government has reorganized the NRDWP project into Jal Jeevan Mission. The main aim is to afford a functional household tap connection. To every rural house for another two years. JJM has proposed multiple schemes such as proper tap water connection for every household, pure drinking water source implementation, resolving both the quality and quantity of water problems, reliable treatment to provide potable water, and Grey Water Management, etc. The JJM is divided into four levels described as National Jal Jeevan Mission, State Water & Sanitation Mission, District Water & Sanitation Mission, and Village Water and Village Water & Sanitation Committee at the National level, State Level, District level, and Gram Panchayat level respectively.

The total budget for JJM is nearly Rs 3.60 lakh crores. The main mission of JJM is to provide drinking water for every rural residence and public centers like educational institutions, health centers, wellness centers, and more on. JJM also aids in the implementation and operation of the village water supply systems. The main objective of JJM is to provide Functional Tap Connections for drought and rural areas. 

Need for the establishment of Jal Jeevan Mission 

Day by day, the population is increasing and there is a huge demand for water. Still, many states and cities are facing a water crisis. There is no proper supply of water for irrigation and drinking purposes. There is no adequate rainfall, groundwater is exhausting and hence the drought issues are enhancing. These tedious problems are affecting the needs of people. The rural people’s health is also affected due to impure drinking water and no sufficient water supply. 

Top-notch features 
Top-notch features

The JJM mission will solve the issues of direct tap water connections. It relies on the local management of water. This management of water describes the usage of water and its availability. JJM aims to develop local infrastructure for multiple purposes like harvesting water, recharging water into the earth, and recycling wastewater. In another two years, people who are living in rural areas. They can get 55 litres of water on a routine basis directly from the tap connection. Apart from providing a tap connection, JJM is planning for good education for the people. The major key points of the Jal Jeevan Mission are providing security for the direct tap connection, developing the water economy, and restoration of water bodies. 

As of now, the JJM scheme has been successfully implemented all over India. You can acquire more details from the following image. The left side image depicts that there was no proper supply of drinking water in 2019. The following right-side image shows a clear pictorial representation of the achievement of JJM (2022) in different parts of our country. 

Fund allocation

While discussing the fund allocation, more weightage is allocated for the water quality affected states. There is an enormous need and demand for the residential directly connected water supply. Hence, JJM assures the top-notch functional domestic tap connection. It empowers everyone’s life too, as water is essential to sustain life. JJM mainly targets local supply management and they also encourage rainwater harvesting. 

Managing residential wastewater and groundwater recharge comes under Government schemes and programmes. For the monitoring of outcomes, the tap connection is linked with the concerned house owner’s Aadhar number. JJM’s assets are completely geo-tagged. Jal Jeevan Mission also conducts the inspection of different infrastructures. They are also accepting donations and contributions from a third-party side. The entire Union Territories can collect the Fund amount from the central government. For most of the trending projects of North Eastern & Hill states, the central government pays the amount. In this gigantic funding process, credible exclusion is exerted.
