Uttarakhand government is planning to give water connection in all households across the state at a nominal Re 1 per house under the Jal Jeevan Mission scheme, state chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has announced.
On Monday, CM Rawat said that under the Jal Jeevan Mission scheme, tap water would be supplied to every household at a nominal cost of Re 1.
“The government is trying to provide clean drinking water to all the people living in our state. At present, the cost of a drinking water connection is Rs 2,350, but not every villager can afford that amount. Under the Jal Jeevan Mission scheme, water connection will be given to each household in the state for only Re 1,” said Rawat.
The CM made the announcement while inaugurating the Mukhyamantri Swarojgar Yojana in dairy development on Monday at Dudhli in Dehradun district.
