The remaining States/UTs are also making all efforts to cover the remaining households within the Mission Period.
The estimated outlay of the mission is Rs. 3.60 lakh Crore out of which the Central share is Rs. 2.08 lakh Crore. The State-wise details of funds allocated and released under JJM are at Annex-II.
Number of steps have been taken to plan and implement JJM in the whole country, with speed, which inter alia, include joint discussion and finalization of annual action plan (AAP) of States/ UTs, regular review of implementation, workshops/ conferences/ webinars for capacity building and knowledge sharing, field visits by multi-disciplinary team, National wash experts, to provide technical support, etc. A detailed Operational Guideline for the implementation of JJM; Margdarshika for Gram Panchayats & VWSCs to provide safe drinking water in rural households and Guidelines on a special campaign to provide piped water supply in anganwadicentres, and schools etc., have been shared with States/ UTs, including Andhra Pradesh, to facilitate planning and implementation of Jal Jeevan Mission.
