Prime Minister Atal Bhujal Yojana – How will this scheme be implemented?
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched the Atal Groundwater Plan (Atal Bhujal Yojana), which will benefit 8,350 villages in seven states. On this occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the water issue was very important for Atal G, which is very close to his heart.
Whether it is Atal Jal Yojana or instructions related to the mission of Jal Jeevan, this is a major step in demonstrating the determination to deliver water to every family in the country by 2024. This water crisis raises our concerns as a family, as a citizen, and as a country also affects development.
Prime Minister Modi said that the new India must prepare us to deal with every instance of the water crisis. For this, we work together at level 5.
Prime Minister Modi also honored the contribution of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee by naming the strategic tunnel under the Rohtang Pass.
The historic decision to build a strategic tunnel was made down the Rohtang Pass on June 3, 2000, when the late Atal Bihari Vajpayee was prime minister.
The foundation stone for the access road to the southern entrance of the tunnel was laid on May 26, 2002.
It aims at sustainable groundwater management with community participation in seven highly exploited groundwater states: Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh. The Financial Expenditure Committee has already recommended the proposal of the Atal Groundwater Plan.
According to data from the Central Groundwater Council and the state’s underground water departments, out of a total of 6,584 units (blocks/taluka/Mandal) that were evaluated in the country, 1,034 units were classified as highly exploited units. These are usually called “dark areas”.
Ordinary people will also be included in this chart. The scheme will be implemented with the assistance of the Water Users Union, monitoring and collection of groundwater abstraction data.
