Appointment of International Water Supply Expert (Individual/ firm) for design of Rural Water
Supply Schemes (Signal / Multi village Schemes) in the Union territory of Ladakh under Jal
Jeevan Mission programme of Government of India
1. WAPCOS Ltd., a Govt. of India Undertaking under the Ministry of jal Shakti, hereby invites
tenders on QCBS basis, for appointment of Water Supply Expert (Individual/ firm) for design
of Rural Water Supply Schemes (Signal / Multi village Schemes) in the Union territory of
Ladakh under Jal Jeevan Mission programme of Government of India. WAPCOS Ltd. is
likely to be appointed as Project Consultant for preparation of DPRs and Tenders for
implementation of Jal Jeevan Mission in the Union Territory of Ladakh, India.
2. About the Project
Water is one of the most essential requirements of life. Assured availability of potable water
is vital for human development. India is home to 18% of global human population and 15%
of global livestock population. However, it has only 2% land mass and 4% of global
freshwater resources. As per Integrated Management Information System (IMIS) as on
31.3.2019, about 18%, i.e. 3.28 Crore out of the total 17.87 Crore rural households in the
country have tap water connection. Thus, Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) has been launched
which aims at providing Functional Household Tap Connection (FHTC) to every rural
household by 2024.
WAPCOS is likely to be appointed as Project Consultant for preparation of DPRs and
Tenders for implementation of Jal Jeevan Mission in the Union Territory of Ladakh, India.
Ladakh is the highest plateau in India with much of it being over 3,000 m (9,800 ft). It
extends from the Himalayan to the Kunlun Ranges and includes the upper Indus
River valley. Ladakh is divided into two districts, Leh and Kargil. The climate of Ladakh is
cold and dry. Average annual precipitation is roughly 3 inches (80 mm); fine, dry, flaked
snow is frequent and sometimes falls heavily. Temperature range (+35 to – 40 deg

Vision of the Project
Every rural household, to have access to drinking water supply in adequate quantity of
prescribed quality on regular and long-term basis through Tap Connection at affordable
service delivery charges leading to improvement in living standards of rural communities

• Provide Functional Household Tap Connection (FHTCs) to every rural household;

• Prioritize provision of Functional Household Tap Connection (FHTCs) in quality affected
areas, villages in drought prone and desert areas;
• Monitor functionality of tap connections;
• Promote and ensure voluntary ownership among local community by way of contribution
in cash, kind and/ or labour and voluntary labour;
• Assist in ensuring sustainability of water supply system, i.e. water source, water supply
infrastructure, and funds for regular Operation & Maintenance (O&M);
• Empower and develop human resource in the sector such that the demands of
construction, plumbing, electrical, water quality management, water treatment,
catchment protection, Operation & Maintenance (O&M), etc. are taken care of in short
and long term;
• Reliable drinking water source development/ augmentation of existing sources;
• Grey Water Management
• Bring awareness on various aspects and significance of safe drinking water and
involvement of stakeholders in manner that make water everyone's business;
• Capacity building of various stakeholders and support activities to facilitate the
Project Strategy
About 81% of rural habitations in the country have access to potable water through a wide
range of schemes whereas about 46% of rural habitations catering to about 54% of rural
population have piped water supply having provision for atleast 40 lpcd, which includes
household tap connections and public stand posts. To achieve the objective of JJM,
following strategy may be adopted:

• The existing rural water supply infrastructure created over the years is to be dovetailed,
retrofitted and renovated to provide FHTCs. Priority will be accorded to retrofit on-going
piped water supply schemes and subsequently to completed piped water supply
schemes providing water through stand post;
• Villages with sufficient groundwater availability of prescribed quality within the village
boundary, the same local water source will be used;
• Villages with functional hand pumps, the well depth can be deepened if required and
can also be used as a source to meet the service delivery level;
• Locations viz., tribal/ hilly/ forested areas, option of gravity and/ or solar power-based
water supply schemes with low O&M expenditure to be explored and preferred. In hills
and mountains, springs as a reliable source for drinking water to be explored;
• Hot and cold deserts, innovative approaches and possibility technology intervention to
be explored;
• Villages with sufficient groundwater availability but having quality issues, in-situ suitable
treatment technology may be explored;
• Villages falling in drought-prone areas, conjunctive use of multiple sources of water can
be explored such as ponds, lakes, rivers, groundwater, supply from long distance,
rainwater harvesting and/ or artificial recharge;
• Villages with water quality issues and non-availability of suitable surface water sources
in nearby areas, it may be more appropriate to transfer bulk water from long distance.
Further, in drought-prone and desert areas, where it is not possible to have water supply
through conjunctive use, a similar approach to transfer bulk water from long distance
may be adopted;
• States with water-scarce/ areas lying in rain shadow region with inadequate rainfall, it is
necessary to plan for regional water supply schemes covering both urban and rural
areas by sourcing water from a perennial surface source;
• Even though JJM envisages to provide FHTCs to every household, in areas having
harsh climatic conditions, viz. high-altitude cold deserts, areas facing extreme terrain
challenges, sparsely populated hot deserts, etc., it may not be feasible to provide FHTC
to every rural household. In such areas, local innovations/ technological solutions have
to be explored to provide up to 8 – 10 litres per capita per day (lpcd) potable water for
drinking and cooking purposes; and other arrangements for rest of the other domestic
• In peri-urban/ big villages in water scarce areas, in order to save the precious fresh
water, it is encouraged to plan a new water supply scheme with dual piped water supply
system, i.e. supply of fresh water in one and treated grey/ waste water in another pipe.
There would be only single connection to every household from both the pipes. The
treated grey/ waste water pipe would be for non-potable/ gardening/ toilet flushing use.
Further, the households in these areas will be encouraged, as part of IEC, to use the
faucet aerators that save a significant amount of water, in multiple taps they may be
using inside their house;
• Innovative technology to be explored to ensure equitable distribution of water;
• Source recharging, viz. dedicated bore well recharge structures, rain water recharge,
rejuvenation of existing water bodies, etc. need to be adopted using watershed/
springshed principles, in convergence with other schemes;
• While planning for water supply schemes/ projects involving high lift of water, energy
cost, and meeting monthly power bills need to be deliberated upon and policy for
meeting this requirement.
