Rae Bareli district of Uttar Pradesh, located on the Gangetic Plain, has largely clayey soil in most areas. The city of Rae Bareli is the district headquarter. Around 91 per cent of the population lives in rural areas of the district, which depend on groundwater for their needs. Over 400 waterbodies have been identified by the Department of Rural Development for restoration under the Amrit Sarovar programme. The waterbodies are either encroached on or receive wastewater from nearby villages.

Jal Jeevan Mission, which is in the process of connecting every rural household with drinking water, has reached almost 79.84 per cent of the households, which is almost 402,058 households as per the current data of the Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation under the Ministry of Jal Shakti.1 Out of the 1,563 villages, 402 villages—accounting for about 26 per cent—have 100 per cent of the households with tap connections.
