Neelambar Pitambar Jal Sammridhi Yojana

While we face a crisis, we must still not lose sight of the greater threat – climate change. One of the major issues for people in the rural areas of India happens to be the lack of safe drinking water because these regions fall in the arid zones where the rainfall is scarce. Conservation of water becomes really difficult when there is just less water to work with.

What is the scheme about?

The Neelambar Pitambar Jal Sammridhi Yojana is a water conservation scheme launched by the Chief Minister of Jharkhand, Hemant Soren. This scheme primarily aims to help those struck by the financial collateral damage due to the lockdown. These schemes would also contribute towards reviving the national economy, which, at the moment, seems to be hitting the bottom.

What does this scheme encompass?

The Jharkhand Neelambar Pitambar Jal Samriddhi Yojana is aimed at water conservation, recharging of ground water and working towards the creation of agro water storage units that help farmers to have a seamless farming experience.

All districts in Jharkhand that face perennial water problems will have this scheme implemented especially Palamu, which will benefit the most from this scheme.

In conclusion

Water conservation not only provides better agricultural practice to arid areas, but it also works towards the revival of greenery on those lands. For the longest time, Jharkhand has faced issues with irregular rains and that has massively impacted the livelihood of those involved in Agricultural practices. With this scheme in place, brighter days stand ahead for the residents of Jharkhand.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
