Jal Shakti Board

A. Who are we?

The major focus of the campaign is on the districts and blocks that suffer water stress.

It came into action in June 2021. It is envisioned to provide safe and adequate quantity of prescribed quality water and harvesting rainwater or having its own rain gauge or rain recording system. Jal Shakti Campus also aims to completion of UN’s ensuring availability of water and its sustainable management and sanitation for all by 2030 and will also ensure that educating people and making the society aware of the need for water conservation.
