A report by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) has commended the Jyotigram Yojana of the Gujarat Government.

Jyotigram is an innovative scheme to make available 24 hours three-phase power supply to over 18,000 Gujarat’s villages!

The report, titled ‘Feeding a Thirsty World: Challenges and Opportunities for a Water and Food Secure Future’, has been published for the ongoing 2012 World Water Week in Stockholm from August 26 to 31.

Earlier in 2010 Jyotigram Yojna has won several awards including “Innovation for India 2010” award in public services category.

 “Jyotigram Yojana”, an innovative scheme by Government of Gujarat has been commended by a newly published report by Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI). SIWI is a policy institute that seeks sustainable solutions to the world’s escalating water crisis.

The report titled “Feeding a Thirsty World: challenges and Opportunities for a Water and Food Secure future” has been published giving the institutes inputs for the current 2012 World Water Week in Stockholm from August 26 to 31.

The report details the achievements of Jyotigram Scheme launched by Shri Narendra Modi government in September 2003. Focusing on water issues the report indicates that Jyotigram is a scheme that has proved to be an optimal and innovative initiative by Gujarat that solves the dual problems of water scarcity and electricity supply.

It mentions, “In trying to solve water problems, we often look for “optimal” solutions emanating from our disciplinary or sectorial perspectives. However, holding out for the best often means we miss other opportunities for positive change as the case of Gujarat, India shows”. Besides it states that “Jyotigram Scheme focuses on providing rationally managed subsidies where needed, and pricing where possible.”

Jyotigram is an innovative scheme to make available 24x7 three phase quality power supply to all 18000 villages of the state. Further the report points out the fact that, the solution has proved to be implementable and it has brought substantial improvement in and outside the water sector.

“Jyotigram Yojana” is one of the dream projects close to his heart of Shri Narendra Modi. The scheme has won several accolades in past, earlier in 2010, Jyotigram had bagged the “Innovation for India-2010” award in the public services category. Besides, Government of India had declared in past to adopt “Jyotigram Yojana” as a flagship scheme for the 12th five year plan.

Jyotigram is a flourishing gift from the state Government. Truly, the 18,000 villages of the state are enjoying the water supply and are shining bright 24x7 due to the political will and Shri Narendra Modi government’s commitment.
