Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, met on Saturday with representatives of the Jal Jeevan Mission, the central government’s flagship programme, as well as its contractors and independent inspection agency.
The CM of Assam also requested that the executing agencies finish their work by December 2023.
While the project’s completion date has been set at March 31, 2024, Dr. Sarma told the members of the executing agency that extra efforts should be made to finish the project in the state by December 31, 2023.
It should be noted that the Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) aims to equip all families in rural India with clean and sufficient drinking water through individual household tap connections by 2024.
Additionally, he requested that the contractors create designs for the completion of the last bit of their job by the deadline.
However he added that quality adherence should be considered in addition to the work’s completion.
According to the Chief Minister of Assam, any contractor who did not complete the task with quality adherence would be banned.
Dr. Sarma further made it plain that if any officer or engineer is discovered to be impeding the work’s execution during implementation, action will be taken against them as well.
In the meeting were PHE Minister Jayanta Mallabaruah, PHE Additional Chief Secretary Syedain Abbasi, JJM Mission Director Kailash Karthick N, and other senior authorities.
