A majority of Indian homes are still waiting for piped water

It is 2021, but even today, at least 111 million Indian homes do not have piped water supply. Of these, there are 78 million houses which fall in villages with piped infrastructure, but are still without tap water provision. A further 34 million rural houses do not even have piped water systems. In 2019, the Government of India revamped the National Rural Drinking Water Programme into Jal Jeevan Mission after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Independence Day, the target to provide tap drinking water to all households in the country by 2024. The scheme gathered pace after the announcement.
