Himachal Pradesh, which is called Devbhoomi, ranks first in the country in terms of water quality. This has come to the fore in a conference organized by UNICEF-Jal Jeevan Mission at Gujarat Bhawan in New Delhi. At the same time, Uttarakhand, which gives abundant oxygen to the country, is also included in the top three states in terms of providing clean drinking water. At the same time, in the Himalayan states, Uttarakhand will get the maximum budget of 1344 crores by the year 2025-26. The Ministry of Jal Shakti conducted a nationwide study on the quality of drinking water supplied to households. On this basis, it was found that highest quality drinking water of 98 percent is being provided in Himachal Pradesh, 95 percent quality water is being provided in Manipur and 92 percent quality drinking water is being provided in Uttarakhand. Apart from this, sensor based smart water supply monitoring systems have been installed in 11 areas of five states in the country. These include Keith, Churedar, in Tehri district of Uttarakhand.
