Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) is Government of India’s (GoI’s) rural drinking water programme to provide functional tap connections to every household for drinking, cooking, and other domestic needs on a sustainable basis by 2024. It subsumes the previous National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP).

  • GoI allocations, releases, and expenditures;
  • Component-wise trends;
  • Progress on coverage; and
  • The 100 days programme to ensure water supply in schools and Anganwadi Centres (AWCs).
