Jal Chaupal

Jal Chaupal is initiative of awaking the peoples about importance of water and various factors related to water scarcity in society. In Jal Chaupal we discuss topics like Ground Water Extraction, Water Pollution, rainwater harvesting, water budgeting, etc. Jal Chaupal has been proved the most important support tool to motivating the peoples to involve in pond restoration work.  We are trying to build an emotional connection between the villagers and water bodies. It will help them understand the importance of lakes and ponds and take initiative to save them. “Water budgeting Water budgeting’ is essential for every village. It refers to the estimation of availability of water in the respective Gram Panchayat from different water sources (groundwater, surface water, and rainwater), and planning its use against the various purposes. Hence, Jal Chaupal helps villagers to understand the amount of water actually required by them, matching against the status of water availability. This has also helped in generating awareness about the importance of water conservation.
