NEW DELHI: The government will link the Aadhaar number of the head of the household for each functional tap water connection under the Jal Jeevan Mission.

According to an official document of the Jal Shakti ministry, which is implementing the ambitious programme of providing tap water connection to every household (‘har ghar nal se jal’) in less than five years, the Aadhaar link will be done for “targeted delivery and monitoring of specific outcomes”.

“This will be subject to statutory provisions. We are working on the operational guidelines, which will be out in the next week or 10 days. Things are being worked out including whether people can be allowed to upload details on to the web portal,” a ministry official said.

All assets created under the mission will be geo-tagged for better monitoring. The government has approved Rs 3.6 lakh crore for this massive scheme. While the Centre and majority of states will have 50:50 sharing of costs, this will be 90:10 for Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and north-eastern states and in the case of UTs, the Centre will bear the entire cost.
