The Government of India is implementing plans for introducing major irrigation projects in different states across India. This comes with the Central Government taking up the promise of supporting states headstrong, when it comes to providing adequate water resources. The institutions namely NABARD and Ministry of Water Resources are positively joining this initiative, and the Finance Minister of India Mr. Arun Jaitley refers to this as “social satisfaction”, that shall lead to economic prosperity.
Under the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana, the Indian government aims at doubling the farmers’ income by the year 2022. In accordance to it, the National Bank of Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) is about to raise over Rs. 77,000 crore in phases from the market. This amount shall be used to fund more than100 projects of irrigation, over a period of 4 years. It shall also include the 56 drought-prone areas in the country. In Andhra Pradesh alone, the statutory responsibility on the Central government is laid to expedite the Rs 16,000 crore Polavaram Irrigation Project.
In addition to providing irrigation to 7.20 lakh acre farmlands, the Polavaram Project shall also supply drinking water to 540 villages, besides generating 960 MW power.
In its resolve of using latest irrigation equipment, drip irrigation facility is put into use at the Agrocorp farmlands in Hindupur region of Andhra Pradesh. This is withstanding the modern irrigation techniques, and hence saving water and getting a better yield from the farms.
