MNRE records say that 381 numbers of solar water pumps were installed in the States of Arunachal Pradesh (3), Chhattisgarh (64), Delhi (1), Maharashtra (11), Rajasthan (300) and Uttar Pradesh (2) during 2011-12.
The Ministry has not allocated funds separately for the solar water pump sets under the Off-grid Solar Application Scheme of Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) during 2012-13. However, an amount of Rs.20.62 crores was released for the installation of 2406 solar pump sets in Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh during 2011-12.
The Ministry sanctions projects to the State Nodal Agencies and other implementing agencies on receiving complete project proposals from them. Therefore, the villages where solar water pumps will get installed will depend on the proposals received and demand from the beneficiaries.
