ANSWER
THE MINISTER OF STATE FOR POWER, COAL, NEW & RENEWABLE ENERGY AND MINES (INDEPENDENT CHARGE) (SHRI PIYUSH GOYAL)
(a) to (f): Saur Sujala Yojana is a scheme of the Government of Chhattisgarh. It was launched in 2016-17 with an objective to install 51,000 solar pumps by 2019. The year-wise target has been fixed as 11,000 for 2016-17, 20,000 for the year 2017-18 and 20,000 for the year 2018-19. Under the scheme, the state government provides 65% subsidy apart from Central Financial Assistance of 30% with the user contribution of only 5%.
The Government of India has launched solar pump scheme under Off-grid and Decentralized Solar Applications Programme during the year 2014-15, with a CFA of 30% of the cost of the system. Under this scheme, allocations have been made to the states based on their demand. The present status of this scheme and details of the states covered and funds released to them so far are given at Annexure-I. 
The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) has allotted 10,000 solar pumps with a Central Financial Assistance of Rs. 151.87 Crore to Chhattisgarh in the year 2016-17. Further, 5000 pumps have been allocated to Chhattisgarh for the year 2017-18. 
Since, Saur Sujala Yojana is a state scheme, inclusion of other states in this programme does not arise. However, it is to be stated that seventeen states have so far requested to be covered in the solar pump scheme of MNRE and they have been included and given allocations as can be seen in Annexure-I.
