Rural Women to Help Monitor Tap Water Quality

The Centre will train five women from each village to test the quality of water as part of the Jal Jeevan Mission, which aims to provide safe and adequate drinking water through individual tap connections by 2024 to all households in rural India, Jal Shakti Minister Shri Gajendra Shekhawat has said. The government will put up inexpensive water-quality testing infrastructure accessible to every village to achieve the mission, the minister said in his keynote address at the Hindustan Times Environment Conclave. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had earlier said that the government plans to spend Rs.3.5 lakh crore over the next five years on the Jal Jeevan Mission, which aims to provide piped water (Har Ghar Jal) to all rural households by 2024.
