Clean water for Maharashtra rural people

The problem of sanitation services and lack of potable water for rural people in Maharashtra is going to be solved soon as the World Bank has signed a $165 million credit to the state.

The WB credit will be utilized by the Maharashtra Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Programme. Currently, only about 50% of the rural households in Maharashtra have access to tap water and about 37% have domestic toilets.

Christened as Jalswarajya-II, the programme will be implemented between 2014 and 2020 and is directly aligned with the Central Government’s Clean India Campaign and the National Rural Drinking Water Program. The Jalswarajya-I had helped 6.7 million people to get healthy potable waters and 61% of the gram panchayats to become Open Defecation Free (ODF) areas in 2003-09.

Jalswarajya-II will help improve the quality of water and sanitation services in about 40 peri-urban villages and increase access to safe drinking water in about 580 water-stressed and water quality-affected villages, covering about one million people in 12 selected districts.
