New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Jal Jeevan Mission mobile application and interacted with Gram panchayats and Pani Samitis on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti on Saturday via video conferencing.

The application aims to improve awareness among stakeholders and for greater transparency and accountability of schemes under the mission.

He also launched Rashtriya Jal Jeevan Kosh, where any individual, institution, corporation, or philanthropist, be it in India or abroad, can contribute to help provide tap water connection in every rural household, school, Anganwadi centre, ashram shala, and other public institutions.

PM Modi said that the initiative is driven by the villages and women across the country.

“The main base of the Jal Jeevan Mission is public participation and mass movement. Today, several steps have been taken to make the initiative more powerful and transparent,” Modi said as he launched the Jal Jeevan Mission mobile application.

He said that all details about the mission such as how many households received water, quality of water etc will be available in one place on the mobile application.

"I am happy that on this day, people from lakhs of villages across the country are conducting Jal Jeevan Samvad through 'Gram Sabhas'. Jal Jeevan Mission is not only to make water accessible to the people. It's also a big movement of decentralization," PM Modi said further. 

"Jal Jeevan Mission not just about bringing water to people; it's also decentralization movement, village and women-driven movement," he added. 

The PM said, "This is a village-driven and women-driven movement. Its main base is mass movement and public participation. On the Jal Jeevan Mission app, every detail regarding this movement will be available in one place." 

The Prime Minister on August 15, 2019 had announced the Jal Jeevan Mission to provide clean tap water to every household. At the time of the launch of the mission, only 3.23 Crore (17%) rural households had a tap water supply.
