- On April 5, Modi announced the party’s 14-day mega ‘Samajik Nyay Pakhwada’ outreach campaign to highlight the welfare measures taken by the Centre, including the Jal Jeevan Mission.
The water being supplied to Skampuk village doesn't freeze, despite the village being located at such a height. That has been made possible by an insulation jacket around the pipe. The Jal Jeevan Mission was launched by Prime Minister Narendr Modi on August 15, 2019.

The Prime Minister spoke with members of village councils and water committees from across the country to assess the issues they face to make clean water available.
The government said that Rashtriya Jal Jeevan Kosh will further promote water conservation efforts, augmentation/strengthening of drinking water sources, grey water treatment and re-use to enhance water security.
While the Jal Jeevan Mission mandates the local authority to conduct regular checks, five women in each village have also been trained to use test kits to check water quality. These kits are designed to assess 12 types of contamination, including phosphate, sulphate, and turbidity, among others.
