अभी ग्रामीण घरों में पाइप से पानी की आपूर्ति लगभग 18% है और जल जीवन मिशन में इसे 100% तक पहुंचाने का लक्ष्य है। पिछले साल प्रधानमंत्री नरेन्द्र मोदी ने स्वतंत्रता दिवस 2019 के अवसर पर देश के सभी घरों को पाइप के द्वारा जल उपलब्ध करवाने के लिए “जल जीवन मिशन” की घोषणा की थी। इसके लिए केंद्र और राज्य मिलकर काम करेंगे। घरों तक नल के माध्यम से जल पहुंचाने की इस महत्त्वाकांक्षी परियोजना पर 3.60 लाख करोड़ रुपये लागत आने का अनुमान है, जिसमें केंद्र सरकार 2.08 लाख करोड़ रुपये अंशदान देगी। 'जल जीवन मिशन' के लिए वित्त वर्ष 2020-21 के बजट में 11,500 करोड़ रुपये रुपए आवंटित किए हैं।

The MMDR Act was amended in 2015, primarily to make auction the sole mode of granting mineral concessions (i.e. prospecting licences and mining leases). Some consequential changes were also made in the rules: the National Mineral Policy (NMP) of 2019 is thus primarily a revision of NMP of 2008.
