The Minister of Jal Shakti stressed upon the officers of the department to strictly install rainwater harvesting system in all government buildings and to follow it compulsorily. It is worth mentioning that from Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to Prime Minister Narendra Modi are strict about rainwater harvesting in Uttar Pradesh, while complete arrangements for rainwater harvesting have not been made even in the government buildings of Uttar Pradesh. In such a situation, Jal Shakti Department is working on it very seriously, so that water conservation can be done through rainwater harvesting.

Jal Shakti Minister Swatantra Dev Singh told the officials that he would also inspect government buildings during his visit to the districts. If they do not get rainwater harvesting plants on government buildings, they will also take action. In the meeting, he also ordered to honor the officers and employees who did better work. For this, instructions were also given to complete the process of selection of one junior engineer, three junior engineers from each district and one executive engineer from the division.
