Recently Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir reviewed many works in Ramban district including Jal Jeevan Mission.

While reviewing the progress of the flagship Jal Jeevan Mission programme, he directed the Deputy Commissioner to ensure that all allotted works are started on ground so that the targeted 57,600 households are provided with functional hand-tap connections.

He expressed concern over the slow pace of FHTC generation in the District and refixed the target of 7,000 FHTCs per month for the next 3 months to saturate the scheme. The Chief Secretary also directed the Deputy Commissioner to scale up ISA activities in the District by integrating principal stakeholders like Pani Samitis, PRIs, Aanganwadi workers, ASHA workers and the general public.

He was informed that all 88 schemes, including 262 works have been tendered and allotted in the District, which includes critical components like GSR, laying of pipes and non-critical components like Slow Sand Filtration Plants.

He stressed upon the distribution of Field Testing Kits amongst the PRIs so that the quality of water is regularly checked at Panchayat level. He also called for strict monitoring of parameters on the Jal Jeevan Mission Dashboard.

He directed the Deputy Commissioner to ensure expeditious disposal of legacy waste, visible cleanliness all around and development of newly-constructed Amrit Sarovars into Amrit Vatikas. He also advised the Deputy Commissioner to focus upon the cleanliness of those panchayats which are on the axis of the NH-44, keeping in view the movement of thousands of passengers, in close coordination with the NHAI.
