    Under the National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP), by 2022 every rural person in the country should have access to 70 lpcd (liters per capita per day) of water within their household premises or at a horizontal or vertical distance of not more than 50 metres from their household to ensure that every rural person has enough safe water for drinking, cooking and other domestic needs as well as livestock throughout the year including during natural disasters. The Individual States can adopt higher quantity norms, such as 100 lpcd.

    RE: National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP)


    It is admissible that State will siphon their own strategies and phased time period to instate this goal. Three standards of service can be identified depending on what communities want:
    >Basic piped water supply with a mix of household connections, public taps and hand pumps with suitable costing as glaring by States taking affordability and social equity into consideration
    > Piped water supply with all metered, household connections with appropriate cost ceilings as decided by States taking affordability and social equity into consideration.
