It is aimed that with FHTC, each household will have potable water supply in adequate quantity (at least 55 lpcd) of prescribed quality on regular and long-term basis. JJM is implemented through institutional mechanism at four levels, viz. national level; state level; district level; and Village level. The essence of the National Jal Jeevan Mission is “Building Partnerships and Changing Lives”.
