Abstract

Jalyukt Shivar (JYS) Campaign is a flagship programme of Government of Maharashtra, aims to bring water empowerment to the drought-affected villages to make Maharashtra Drought Free by the year 2019. This Campaign is first of its kind organized action plan wherein many departments are collectively & collaboratively working towards a common goal i.e. ‘Water for All’. The Campaign is mainly a combination of various pre-existing schemes related to water conservation but with certain fine tuning. The targets in the first phase of JYS Campaign, which were having a time frame of a year, could not be achieved even after two years. The Government of Maharashtra has initiated several measures to expedite the campaign but these initiatives have only focused on reducing cycle time of particular stage. Also; the government is only monitoring a construction phase of project cycle whereas delays in pre-construction actives are not being taken in to account. The aim of this study is to optimize the cycle time by highlighting all such areas where substantial delays are occurring and proposing measures to reduce such delays thereby reducing the overall project cycle time for the JYS works. For data collection interview method and field visit approach has been adopted. From the collected data, projects cycle time of JYS works has been grouped under 7 stages and idealistic time cycle has been developed which then compared with case studies, to highlight the delaying events. Results from case studies showed that major portion of project cycle time is being consumed by project initiation, formulation, and approval phases than actual construction phase.
