Keeping piped water flowing in rural India
The Government of India aims to provide every rural household with piped drinking water by 2024. Significant public investments have been allocated between 2019 and 2024 to support Prime Minister Modi’s vision through the Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM). As the construction phase nears completion, maintaining piped networks to keep water flowing is an increasing priority.
