In all, 3297 households in 26 different villages with a population of 15,218 are being identified and the work progress has reached 80 percent even despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Water supply scheme for villages not covered in the Jaal Jeevan Mission will also be taken up under externally aided programme funded by New Development Bank.
