The National Policy Guidelines for Self-supply was developed by the multi-stakeholder Self-supply Working Group (SSWG) and endorsed by the Ministry of Water and Energy (MoWE) in February 2012. Members of the working group involved included MoWE, IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre, UNICEF, WHO, RiPPLE and COWASH. 

Building on this policy guideline, implementation is now being supported by the national Self-supply Acceleration Programme (SSAP). The SSAP is working to improve access to household-level and shared water supplies and to drive up standards of construction and water quality. Self-supply is complementary to communal supplies, and part of providing universal access. Self-supply is also now included in the One WASH National Programme (OWNP).
