Rajasthan’s Jal Swavlamban Abhiyan Is Making Steady Progress To Provide Water For Citizens

Published on 11 August, 2016 at 7:48 pm By

Will it shock you to know that only about 18% of our total rural population of 833 million Indians have access to treated water, yet about 41% (around 346 million rural people) have mobile phones?

Rajasthan, which is considered the only desert state in India, has around 10% of the land area and 5% of the total Indian population, yet the state has only 1% of the water of the country, which of course is a problem for citizens. Under CM Vasyndhara Raje, 2016 was earmarked as the Year of #JalKranti.

The CM launched the Mukhyamantri Jal Swavlamban Abhiyan to conserve and harvest rainwater so that villages could become self-reliant even in the face of droughts.



In the first year, 3000 villages will be selected on the basis of priority and over the next three years, around 6000 villages will be included in the scheme every year. The idea is to benefit 21,000 villages of the State. The photo above shows de-silting of the Sarohi Lake; almost 12000 truckloads of sand has been removed from Lakherao Lake.

The process involves the removal of contaminants and pathogens via the use of intermittent sand fillers. This is an extensive treatment technique aimed at eliminating organic matter, oxidizing ammonium and removing pathogens.
