ii. JALAYOGA SCHEME
The scheme introduced in the year 1996 to
commemorate Bank's 90th year of establishment to provide safe drinking water to
SC/ST/Backward communities of rural areas coming under lead districts of the
Bank. Acute shortage of drinking water faced by the impacted community has
driven the Bank to respond to their needs. Governments alone cannot meet the
basic needs of the people and this has prompted the Bank to take up community
development projects like JALAYOGA.
The Bank through its operating mechanism
identifies the areas for implementation of the scheme. The necessary land is
allotted/granted by the Village Panchayat/ Village Development Committee. The
Bank funds the project and implements through its branches.
A sum of Rs. 3.00 lakhs per project is released
and any extra cost towards the project is to be borne by the local bodies.
After completion, the system is handed over to the local bodies for future
maintenance and servicing.
