Under Jal Jeevan Mission, as per existing guidelines, a tap water connectionto a rural household is considered to be functional if the tap connection provides drinking water in adequate quantity (at least 55 lpcd), of prescribed quality (BIS:10500 standard) and on regular basis i.e. continuous supply in long-term.

As reported by States on JJM-IMIS, as on 7th December, 2022, out of 19.35 Crore rural households in the country, around 10.67 Crore (55.13%) households are reported to have tap water supply in their homes and the remaining 8.7 Crore rural households are planned to be covered by 2024. The State/ UT wise details are at annexed.

During the functionality assessment exercise undertaken during 2021-22, it was found that in more than 95% households the water samples had values within the acceptable limits of pH values. Also, in more than 87%of the water samples from schools and 87% Anganwadi Centers,the free residual chlorinevalues were found not to be exceeding the norms.

“Water” being a state subject, planning, approval, and implementation of the drinking water supply schemes as per the JJM norms for quantity, quality, and regularity, lies with the respective State/UT government. The States/UTs have been advised to take action for further improvement in safe water service delivery, including at schools and anganwadis.
