Jal Shakti Abhiyan is a prominent initiative of the Government of India aimed at ensuring water security and promoting water conservation throughout the country. The program aims to raise awareness about the significance of water conservation, encourage water harvesting practices, and enhance water storage and distribution infrastructure.

During the review meeting, the participants assessed the on-ground impact of the program and identified any challenges or issues that need immediate attention.

The Union Joint Secretary commended the efforts of the district administration and all stakeholders involved in the successful implementation of the Jal Shakti Abhiyan in Doda.
