The programme was restructured and 4

5 renamed as Command Area Development and Water Management (CADWM) Programme with effect from 1 st April, Q. How much percentage of central assistance is provided to State Governments under the programme? A. Central assistance of 50% for construction activities and 75% for software activities (like training, evaluation, adaptive trials, demonstrations) is provided to the State Governments subject to the prescribed cost norms. Q. What are the components covered under the programme? A. The following components are covered under the Programme: (i) Survey, planning and designing (ii) Construction of field channels (iii) Full package On-Farm Development (OFD) works (iv ) Warabandi (v) Construction of field drains, intermediate and link drains (vi) Reclamation of waterlogged areas (vii) Software components like training of farmers, adaptive trials & demonstration (viii) Functional grant of Water Users Associations (WUAs) (ix) Establishment cost (x) Research & Development (R&D) activities (xi) Correction of system deficiencies (xii) Renovation and de-silting of existing irrigation tanks Q. Have any evaluation studies of the programme been done? If so, what are the findings of these studies? A. Impact Evaluation studies are a part of the programme. So far 53 evaluation studies have been taken up through independent agencies, consultants, Non-Government Organisations (NGOs), Institutions etc., out of which 47 have been completed and remaining 6 are in final stage of completion. These evaluation studies have revealed many positive impacts of the Programme on performance indicators such as water use efficiency, agricultural production and productivity, utilization of irrigation potential created, irrigation intensity, equity in distribution of water, farmers income etc. 5

6 Q. Is the programme monitored regularly by Government of India? A. The Programme is monitored through field visits by the officers of Ministry of Water Resources (MoWR) and field units of Central Water Commission (CWC). The Programme is also monitored through quarterly progress reports (QPRs) and information submitted by the State Governments along with the proposals for release of central assistance. In order to further strengthen the monitoring, a State level monitoring committee in each State has been envisaged under the Chairmanship of Secretary-incharge of the Programme in the State. A number of States have already constituted such Monitoring Committees. Q. Is there any component under the programme for promotion of PIM Programme? A. The Participatory Irrigation Management (PIM) programme is given due importance under the CADWM Programme. There is a provision of one time functional grant of Rs.600 per ha for registered WUAs which is to be shared between State, Centre and the farmers in the ratio of 270:270:60. Q. Are the PRIs involved in implementation of the programme? A. Irrigation systems are managed on the basis of command area of the project and may cover more than one administrative unit. Also, only the stake holders can manage the system in a better way. Therefore, the irrigation systems can be managed in a better way through WUAs rather than involving PRIs in the same. The involvement of PRIs can be ensured by their representation in the WUAs. Q. Has the programme been reviewed and if so, what is the outcome? A. The implementation of the programme was reviewed by a sub-group of Working Group of Planning Commission for formulation of XI Plan. The subgroup observed the following constraints of the Programme: The State Governments are not able to provide enough funds towards their share due to which progress is slow. In spite of 75% central 6

7 assistance in software items, State Govts. are not paying much attention to these activities. The cost norms for certain items were approved during (implemented w.e.f ) whereas cost of construction has increased considerably due to increase in cost of cement, bricks, labour etc. Q. What steps are being taken to remove these constraints? A. The programme is proposed to be modified during remaining period of XI Plan with following modifications: (i) The Central share for construction activities is proposed to be enhanced from present level of 50% to 90% in case of special category States/areas namely, NE States, Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, Kalahandi-Bolangir and Koraput (KBK) districts of Orissa. ii) In order to upscale the Programme, projects under Accelerated Irrigation Beneficiary Programme (AIBP) in which CAD works are not done are proposed to be included in order to fully utilise the created potential. (iii) In view of the increase in material and labour cost, the cost norms are proposed to be enhanced. Q. What is the Scheme of Artificial Recharge to Ground Water through Dugwell? A. Many areas of the country underlain by hard rock aquifers having limited storage potentials are facing acute problems of over exploitation and depletion of ground water resources. About 80% of these ground water stressed areas (over exploited, critical and semi-critical) are located in the hard rock areas in the States of Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu where rapid decline of ground water levels have been observed on long term basis. Keeping in view the concerns on the problems of over exploitation of ground water resources in the country as well as to ensure sustainable water resource management and assured irrigation facilities in the affected areas, a scheme namely Artificial Recharge of Ground Water through Dug wells has been launched. 7

8 Q. Whether the scheme is Central Sector/Centrally sponsored/state Sector? A. The scheme is a State Sector Scheme. Q. In which States, the scheme is being implemented? A. The scheme will be implemented in over-exploited, critical and semicritical blocks (administrative) in the States of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat by the respective State Governments in association with Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs), CGWB, NABARD, NGOs etc. Q. How many dug wells are being taken up during the scheme? A million dugwells would be taken up for recharge of ground water in 110 blocks of the identified States. Q. What is implementation period of the scheme? A. The scheme is phased over three year duration and is being implemented during the years of XI Plan period. Q. What is the total cost of the scheme? A. The total cost of the Scheme in respect of million existing dugwells is Rs crores. Q. Who are the beneficiaries? A. Any farmers having dugwell in their agricultural land in the identified areas is the beneficiary. Q. Whether any subsidy to the farmers is being provided? A. Yes, an amount of Rs crore is being provided by Government of India as subsidy to the farmers, which will be disbursed by NABARD through the lead bank of the district concerned to the identified beneficiaries. 8

9 Q. What is subsidy pattern under the scheme? A. The scheme provides for 100% subsidy to Marginal (0-1 ha land holding) and Small farmers (1-2 ha land holding) and 50% subsidy to Other farmers (> 2 ha land holding). Q. Who will implement the scheme? A. The scheme will be implemented by the respective State Governments in association with Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs), CGWB, NABARD and NGOs. 9
