Rural Water Supply Schemes

Section: Schemes pages are not under access control

Water is a State subject. The Government of India is assisting the States in providing Water Supply to the rural areas through the Centrally Sponsored Scheme of National Rural Drinking Water Programme from 2009 onwards. Prior to 2009, the Assistance to States was through Accelerated Rural Water Supply Programme. In 12th plan period, the Government of India enhanced the rural drinking water supply per capita norms from 40 lpcd to 55 lpcd with a view to increase house hold tap connections.

The Newly formed Ministry of Jal Shakti  is  committed to provide piped water supply house hold connections to all rural house holds by 2024 with a focus on community managed  ground water schemes wherever possible  with emphasis on source sustainablity through ground water recharge and waste water reuse.

In Tamil Nadu, as on 01.04.2019, as per IMIS, there are 1,00,014 rural habitations of which 96,796 habitations  are fully covered and 3218 habitations are partially  covered. (This data is provisional and may change after yearly data updation)
