Similarly, more than 3000 schemes are under execution across all the districts of the UT with involvement of about 1700 contractors executing the works which has resulted in massive employment generation in rural areas. At least 350 Water Supply Schemes have been completed as on date.
Under Water Quality Monitoring & Surveillance, during the current fiscal, about 1.75 lakh tests have been conducted through 98 Water Testing laboratories set up all across the UT to ensure the constant maintenance of quality of the water being supplied to the general public.
Further, about 7500 Field Testing Kits (FTKs) have been distributed among 6630 Panchayat Pani Samitis and more than 33000 Women have been trained for use of FTKs in checking the quality of water and reporting the results online through WQMIS Portal.
