In India, nearly 900 million people live in one of the country’s 600,000 rural villages. Around 45 per cent of this population still cannot access safely managed drinking water. That’s approximately 400 million people without proper access to a vital resource.

In 2019, the government of India started the Jal Jeevan Mission to provide adequate, safe and reliable drinking water to all rural households in India by 2024, through the installation of functional household tap connections.
