There is a wide gap in the demand and supply of safe drinking water. The fact that nearly 680 million have no access to safe water (in India alone) is a matter of grave concern. Safe drinking water is a basic human requirement that is essential for good health, wellness and enables better education for children. This led us to conceive JanaJal (water for people) through a globally unique services focus. ‘Jana’ means people and ‘Jal means water. Our mission is to provide safe drinking water to every person at a nominal cost in a sustainable and consistent manner. Safe drinking water is a basic human requirement, which is essential for good health and subsequent education of the people, and can boost the GDP by upto 6% (Source: https://www.downtoearth.org.in/news/water/water-scarcity-may-cause-upto-6-loss-in-gdp-world-bank-53816). JanaJal keeps technological advancement, innovation and implementation to serve people, at its core. India has made substantial investment in water ATMs that stand unutilized or massively underutilized. JanaJal’s technology begins with people and the clear reality that building water delivery technology in no way ensures it utilization. In exchange for placing a modest price on water of INR 5 per liter (0.070 USD), JanaJal aggressively develops customer relationship recommending containers that work with our systems, the broadest range of transaction options and account maintenance across the industry. We follow a technology-agnostic approach towards use of water treatment technologies to solve different water related issues thereby ensuring highest level of water conservation at all times. Every water ATM installed is custom built from the water treatment technology, capacity and operating format to suit the specific environment which it is intended to operate in. Consumers can transact using the JanaJal Mobile App which allows for seamless digital transactions using all forms of digital payment platforms including 122 e-wallets in India. All water ATMs provide real-time access to qualitative (TDS level, temperature and pH) and quantitative (litres of water dispensed per day and revenue collection) data through IoT based controllers connected to secure cloud servers. The IoT controllers are globally unique and IP is owned by the company. To demonstrate customer responsive sustainable utilization of water ATMs, JanaJal has also developed the WOW (Water on Wheels) that is a unique Electric Vehicle (EV) for enabling last-metre delivery of safe water to the doorstep of households. JanaJal WOW was recently recognized as an innovation by the Ministry of Jal Shakti (Water Ministry) in India and is likely to play a role in the Government of India’s vision and mission of making safe water available to every citizen by 2024.
