Objective of Mission Amrit Sarovar is “construction/development of at least 75 Amrit Sarovar (ponds) in every district of the country totalling about 50,000 Amrit Sarovars in the country”. Each Amrit Sarovar will have pondage area of minimum of 1 acre (0.4 hectare) with water holding capacity of about 10,000 cubic meter.
Mission Amrit Sarovar will be launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister on the eve of National Panchayat Day on 24th April 2022. This exercise would be begun as early as possible so as to complete a substantial number of structures by August 15, 2022 which is for other states of India.
But for North- Eastern states all such Amrit Sarovars should be completed by end of Amrit Varsh i.e. 15thAugust 2023.
The site of Amrit Sarovars will be approved by special Gram Sabha, which will also name Panchayat Partinidhi, who will on its behalf supervise development of Amrit Sarovar.
