Gajendra Singh Shekhawat – Union Minister of Jal Shakti:
In keeping with the times and technology, the thirst of rural India and its quenching will now be monitored by the Jal Jeevan Mission through a smart rural water supply ecosystem that will reach every village of the country.
Putting our best initiatives like Digital India, Make In India and Aatma Nirbhar Bharat to optimum use, this digitally enabled water supply infrastructure will help in near real-time monitoring and evidence-based policymaking.
An ICT challenge will be launched to bring an innovative, modular, and cost-effective solution to develop a ‘Smart Water Supply Measurement and Monitoring System’ to be deployed at the village level.
This ICT challenge will be held in association with the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (@GoI_MeitY) inviting our Indian Tech start-ups, MSMEs, Indian Companies & Indian LLPs.
