BHARAT TAP Initiative

The Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs & Petroleum and Natural Gas, Hardeep S Puri, launched the BHARAT TAP initiative at the ‘Plumbex India’ exhibition. This exhibition aims at products and services related to the plumbing, water and sanitation industry.  

 

About the ‘BHARAT TAP’ Initiative:

  • This initiative will provide low-flow, sanitary ware at scale and considerably reduce water consumption at the source. Also, the main objective is that it is expected to lead to a renewed focus on water conservation efforts.
  • Plumbing Fixtures to ensure water savings of a minimum of 40%. This will, in turn, result in saving water and energy since less water and energy will be required for pumping, transporting, and purification.

Other Initiatives for Water Conservation are:

  • Swachh Bharat Mission
  • Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Transformation (AMRUT)
  • AMRUT 2.0
  • National Aquifer Mapping and Management Programme
