A multi-disciplinary Technical Committee in the Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation, Ministry of Jal Shakti has recommended five technologies in Drinking Water and  Sanitation to provide Field Level Solutions to the States. The recommendation by the Committee would help the States and Union Territories to use these technologies depending on their requirement and suitability. These technologies were appraised at different levels before consideration and recommendation by the Technical Committee.

The first of the five technologies that have been recommended is Grundfos AQpure, a solar energy based water treatment plant based on ultra filtration. The Second is Janajal Water on Wheel, an IoT based electric vehicle based on GPS location to enable delivery of safe water to the doorstep of households. 

Another technology is Presto Online Chlorinator, a non-electricity dependent online chlorinator for disinfection of water for removal of bacterial contamination. Johkasou technology recommended is  an inbuilt sewage and Kitchen and bath water treatment system having advanced anaerobic-aerobic configuration that can be installed underground. The last innovative technology is FBTec®, a site assembled in a decentralised sewage treatment system using fixed filter media.
 
The Ministry of Jal Shakti gives primacy to the infusion and deployment of innovative technological solutions to realize the ambitious objective of the Jal Jeevan Mission to provide Functional Household Tap Connection to every rural home by 2024.
 
To address these challenges and to consider and recommend innovative ‘field level solution’ technologies, a multi-disciplinary Technical Committee, chaired by the Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India with members including from NITI Aayog, Department of Science and Technology, CSIR, DRDO, IIT, National Institute of Ocean Technology, and States was constituted. The Committee focussed on application of Science and Technology  for providing field level solutions, which would be helpful to the implementing agencies in the States.
