HYDERABAD:  Under the Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) of the Centre, all rural households have been provided with water tap connections, covering 100 per cent of the households since the launch of the programme in 2019.

According to the latest report of the Union Ministry of jal shakti, in 2019, 15.68 lakh households or 29.05 per cent of all households, had water tap connections. This increased to 53.98 lakh households in 2023 under the JMM, the Centre’s flagship programme, covering 100 per cent of the rural households across the state.

In the last five years, over 38.29 lakh households, comprising 70.95 per cent, have been provided with tap water connections, ensuring the availability of water for the remaining households of the state, the report said.
