Har ghar jal

'Jal Jeevan Mission' launched by Government of India aims to provide Functional Household Tap Connection (FHTC) with service levels at the rate of 55 litres per capita per day (lpcd) to every rural household by 2024. It is estimated that to achieve the aim of the mission, close to 14 crore rural households are required to be provided access to water supply connection. This is a formidable task given the remote location of Indian villages. Decentralized water generation and supply system could help in achieving the universal access to water by providing standalone solutions better suited with the country's hydro-meteorological environment.

With this perspective, this panel discussion is being organised to discuss latest innovations in the sector and deliberate on policy and regulatory framework to facilitate the implementation of decentralized water supply systems in the country.
