ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE (INDEPENDENT CHARGE) IN THE MINISTRY OF DRINKING

(a) & (b) As reported by States during last ten years; from 2003-04 to 2012-13, under National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP) the number of additional habitations provided with full coverage by minimum 40 litre per-capita per day (lpcd) is given at Annexure-I indicating that the availability of drinking water in rural areas is increasing. The State/UT wise target and coverage of additional habitations to be improved to 40 lpcd as reported by the States on the IMIS from 2008-09 is at Annexure-II. 

(c) Drinking Water Supply is a state subject. However under NRDWP, the Ministry provides financial and technical assistance to States to supplement their efforts to provide adequate safe drinking water to rural population. A budgetary allocation of Rs.11, 000 crore has been provided for NRDWP in 2013-14. Under NRDWP, States have been asked to give priority to cover partially covered habitations with adequate drinking water in the Annual Action Plan. States have targeted to cover 1, 16,493 partially covered habitations in 2013-14. Government of India is taking steps to cover rural habitations and households with adequate safe drinking water supply on a continuous basis.
