About 2,000 laboratories across country have been opened up to general public for testing their water samples at a nominal rate.
The source co-ordinates of all water samples are captured and the water quality testing reports are generated online and sent to the citizen along with a copy to concerned public health engineer for immediate corrective action, if any and also in the Central database for continuous monitoring and remedial action.
In continuation to all the efforts to provide safe drinking water to rural homes, water quality testing laboratories in the State at different levels like State headquarter, district-level, block/ sub division-level are being standardized.
Under Jal Jeevan Mission, priority has been given to provision of tap water supply to water quality-affected habitations. So far, out of identified 27,544 Arsenic and Fluoride-affected habitations, States have made provisions of potable water supply in 26,492 habitations.
