The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is trying to focus on water conservation and is trying to promote water harvesting in many areas.
Under Jal Shakti Abhiyan, the central government is already providing a lot of funds so that no household remains without safe drinking water.
Recently the Union Joint Secretary e-reviewed implementation of Jal Shakti Abhiyan in Bandipora district.
He asked the concerned officials in Bandipora district to take immediate measures to address the challenges being faced while implementing the programme. He also urged upon the stakeholders to work together to achieve the common goal of water conservation and water security in the district.
