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 Shakthi is committed to provide piped water supply house hold connections to all rural households by 2024 with a focus on community managed ground water schemes wherever possible with emphasis on source sustainability through ground water recharge and waste water reuse.

In Tamil Nadu, as on 01.04.2021 as per IMIS, there are 79,329 rural habitations of which 57,638 habitations are fully covered and 21,691 habitations are partially covered. (This data is provisional and may change after yearly data updation)
