Mukhyamantri Jal Swavlamban Yojana (MJSA) has touched numerous lives and How?
The ambitious Jal Swavlamban Yojana has fulfilled more dreams than expected; achieved more milestones than anticipated; reached those corners of the rural population and overcome numerous more roadblocks. The Jal Swavlamban Yojana is a magical scheme for a desert state like Rajasthan. The impeccable leadership of CM Raje has brought laurels and smiles to the state and its citizens.
How MJSA works?
MJSA is an innovative scheme which aims at eluding Rajasthan from a drought like situation by doing watershed wise water budgeting for ensuring a permanent solution to mitigate the problem of water shortage. The water conservation works are implemented by deploying funds received from State departments, Non-Government Organizations, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), people’s participation, Non-Residents Villagers Club (NRV Club) etc. The first year focused on bringing together 6000 villages in the scheme. From the consecutive years, the government aims at covering 21000 villages every year, thereby achieving the mission of providing a permanent solution to water scarcity across thousands of villages. In remaining villages, work will be carried out in a phased manner.
MJSA: Breakthrough journey in Ajmer
Like all other districts, the Ajmer district of Rajasthan has benefitted greatly from the MJSA. Water levels have increased by unbelievable margins in Ajmer.
MJSA has changed the destinies of the villagers of the Tilana village. It also changed the condition of the farms which is located near Nasirabad. Under the MJSA, a farm pond was built on the farm of Girdhar Singh. The farm pond played a fundamental role in uplifting farmers and protecting them from a state of drought. By the virtue of a farm pond, not only the concerned farmer but also other farmers in the locality benefitted greatly from the farm pond. Water levels of surrounding wells also increase due to the construction of one farm pond in the locality. “Due to the shortage of water, farmers used to face a lot of difficulties while watering Kharif crops,” informed Gaurav Goyal, District collector of Ajmer.
