Ground Water Irrigation scheme
Ground Water Irrigation scheme is also known as Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY). These are the groundwater resources, and it is completely implemented by the ministry of water resources. Under Ground Water Irrigation scheme these project comes such as river development and Ganga Rejuvenation (MoWR, RD&GD). Now let’s discuss in brief about Ground Water Irrigation scheme.
Creation of irrigation potential through groundwater
The creation of irrigation potential with groundwater is directly proportional to the underlying aquifers yield potential. According to this scheme if any person wants to construction for groundwater then according to the area state central agencies are involved in the groundwater development project.
Few points given below that must consider during a groundwater development project.
- This scheme does not apply to particular areas which come under this category such as classified as over-exploited, critical, and semi-critical areas. After that, those areas left or does not lie in I above category then they have some different eligibility criteria.
- There are real areas left out which are not classified into any category then this scheme depends upon the different type of criteria and guidelines given by the government.
- Groundwater development can be carried out the different type of methods such as
- Dug wells
- Dug Cum Borewells
- Before groundwater well is going to be implemented on the area person must take help from the state and central government for that particular area. They will justify the suitability of water with the help of hydro-geological setup and water aquifers.
- The government will provide a cluster proposal for the solar pump so that users can use at least 25% of the electricity from the solar pump rest 75% electricity. And this is useful for those areas where electricity cannot be sufficient for cultivation.
- All state agencies amazing climbing regarding groundwater irrigation scheme to execute all type of proposal that has been derived by the consolation with state groundwater department.
- Reduce the failure of architecting groundwater well without water the government applied geophysical and hydrogeological investigation.
What is the Eligibility Criteria for Ground Water Irrigation Scheme?
This is the basic point that we are going to discuss the eligibility criteria of the Ground Water irrigation scheme. Any person wants to dig a well then they must know that are they eligible for this government scheme that has been launched. So let’s discuss complete eligibility criteria read it carefully.
- More than 60 percent of resources are developed according to technology and take groundwater irrigation to the next level.
- Restoration water into the ground there will be a minimum 750mm rainwater every year.
- At the time of pre-monsoon check the water level at least in 15 meters of the area at well to be dig. Stage of groundwater development (SOD) in any area to be planed in such a way that it should not exceed more than 70% at each time. As above we discuss that if those areas not come under these criteria those have different guidelines. These depend upon the state and central government rules.
- There are some different rules and regulations for small and marginal farmers and provide different priorities for SC/ST and women farmers.
- Ground Water Irrigation scheme can be applied for all farmers, groups of farmers, and many more.
