Central Government takes up monitoring and evaluation studies through reputed organizations / institutions from time to time. The State Governments may also take up similar monitoring and evaluation studies on the implementation of the rural water supply programme. Such proposal needs to be approved in the SLSSC meeting. 100% financial assistance will be provided by the Centre to the States for taking up such evaluation studies under Support activities fund. The reports of these studies should be made available to the Department and immediate corrective action should be initiated as a follow up to improve the quality of programme implementation.
