 Bihar Nal-Jal Yojana: 14% work completed in rural area, less than half of budget used

Special report: claiming the success of his government's 'Seven Determinations' before the election. However, statistics show that some of the schemes included in Part-1 have not landed on the ground in some districts and only a percentage of work has been completed where started.



New Delhi: Elections have once again come in front of the people of Bihar who have been facing the brunt of migration, unemployment, floods and poverty for the last several years.

  • Their suffering was further exacerbated when people faced a terrible tragedy during the lockdown due to the Corona epidemic, with governments having to walk thousands of kilometers on their way to their homes when the traffic was not properly managed, She had to lose her job and many people fell victim to starvation.
  • In such an environment, all the parties are showing different kinds of dreams to the people of Bihar, which include promises ranging from bread, cloth, house to corona vaccine.
  • First of all, it is ridiculous that even the basic needs given to the public are being promoted by the parties as 'electoral promises', which shows how far behind society is 73 years after independence.
  • In 2015, the ruling party Janata Dal United (JDU) announced the 'Seven Determinants', under which development works were to be done in a total of seven areas including drinking water, toilets, women employment. This announcement was at the heart of the schemes made during the tenure of Nitish Sarkar.
  • JDU has declared this as a major achievement, on the lines of this, for this time, 'Seven Determinants Part-2' has been announced, under which seven promises have been made such as irrigation, making the village clean and prosperous, providing health facilities for all. .
  • He further said, 'We have decided, this time if given a chance, we will bring irrigation water to every field. Will not let it dry anywhere. Electricity has reached every house, now we will install solar lights in every village. Despite the lights being extinguished in the house, the entire village will remain illuminated. '

Every house has tap water

The objective of this decision was to provide clean drinking water through tap to nearly two crore families of Bihar.

To accomplish this, the Bihar government had launched a total of four schemes, in which there were separate schemes for urban areas, rural and poor water quality areas.

For other areas except urban, its implementation is being done by Panchayati Raj Department and the scheme was started on 27 September 2016.

  • Under the Chief Minister Rural Drinking Water Nischal Scheme, all the families of all the wards of the non-quality affected 5013 gram panchayats of the state were to be supplied with clean drinking water through pipes through pipes.

  • It was to be implemented in all the wards of the Gram Panchayat. However, according to the data available on the website of the Panchayati Raj Department, the scheme was started in 59,730 wards out of a total of 1,14,737 wards in 38 districts of the state.
