For the government run schools, drinking water, sanitation and electricity have been the problems but now the J&K administration has launched an initiative to provide all these facilities to those students who want to study in these schools.
Recently the Jammu and Kashmir administration has launched an ambitious initiative of providing Water, sanitation, and electricity in all 23,112 government schools. This was one of the basic requirements of the schools which were being carried out at a snail’s pace by successive Governments.
The ministry of Jal Shakti had launched a 100-day campaign on October 2, 2020, based on the vision and under the direction of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure potable water supply in all schools and Anganwadi centres across the country.
Jammu and Kashmir fulfilled the Prime Minister’s vision by providing safe water in all these institutions within the campaign period, so that the children will have access to potable piped water for drinking, hand washing and for use in toilets.
To channelize the energy of youth, hone their personality, and prepare them for future challenges, youth clubs are being formed in every panchayat of UT. Youth clubs with at least 5 Members are being established, who shall be provided incentives under various schemes for making iconic Panchayats, as per needs and requirements of Panchayat.
