Jal Swavalambhan Abhiyaan, the dream project of CM Vasundhara Raje is gradually transforming the face of the desert state Rajasthan.

First phase of the campaign has already been concluded and much progress has been made in the direction of its motive. 3529 villages of the state have got plenty of supply of water resources for both irrigation and other consumption purposes.
