"An important part of the 'Jal Shakti Abhiyan' is that it will focus on five aspects - water conservation and rainwater harvesting, renovation of traditional and other water bodies/ tanks, reuse and recharge structures, watershed development and intensive afforestation," it said.

Director, DRZ (North) stressed upon the need for educating people at village-level about the importance of saving water, showing them effective ways and techniques and how they can play a leading role in taking the initiatives forward.

He urged the veterans in seizing the initiative and being a role model for the society in sensitizing the environment towards honing their skills, ensuring their participation and ownership in managing local water bodies and continuing this practice on a daily basis to ensure efficient water conservation measures.
