A mid-term review meeting on planning and implementation of Jal Jeevan Mission in Meghalaya was held on Monday through video conferencing, wherein the state officials presented the progress report to the National Jal Jeevan Mission.
 
Meghalaya has around 5.89 lakh rural households and the state is planning to provide 2.04 lakh households with tap connections in 2020-21.
 
During the review, it was noted that Meghalaya is planning to cover its 1,636 villages with 100 per cent  tap connection in 2020-21 and so far, 112 villages are covered.
 
According to Jal Shakti Ministry, the state was advised to give undivided focus on the planning at village level by preparing Village Action Plan (VAP) for every village.

Under Jal Jeevan Mission, during 2020-21, Meghalaya has been allocated an amount of over Rs.114 crore, out of which Rs. 28.52 crore has been released to the state.
 
State was also urged to ensure all the Anganwadi Centres and schools are provided piped water supply as part of the special 100-day campaign launched on 2nd of October, so that potable water is available in these institutions for the proposes of drinking, hand washing and use in toilets.

Jal Jeevan Mission is a flagship programme of Central Government to provide potable water to rural homes through Functional Household Tap Connection by 2024.
 
The mission aims to improve the lives of rural people by providing safe drinking water to every rural home through household tap connections.
