Strategy III.4

Intensive programme for ground water recharge in over: exploited, critical and semi-critical areas

Rain water harvesting and artificial recharge to ground water

 

There are 1071 assessment units categorized as over exploited as per the 2011 assessment of CGWB. The eighteen States/UTs having over exploited ground water assessment units are: Andhra Pradesh (45%), Chhattisgarh (35%), Gujarat (67%), Himachal Pradesh (71%), Jharkhand (32%), Karnataka (64%), Kerala (47%), Madhya Pradesh (57%), Maharashtra (53), Tamil Nadu (77%), Uttar Pradesh (74%),    Punjab (172%), Rajasthan (137%), Haryana (133%), Delhi (137%), Puducherry (90 %) Daman & Diu (97%) and Telangana (54.8%). The Principal Secretaries Incharge of Ground Water Department of these eighteen States/UT’s have been requested to submit DPR for demonstration project for one over-exploited assessment unit in each State/UT

In these blocks, it is proposed to implement Rain Water Harvesting and Artificial Recharge after preparation of DPR for the block as a complete unit by harnessing the surplus non-committed water resources for the purpose of the demonstrative replicability of Artificial Recharge and Rain Water Harvesting for improving the Ground Water Situation. Identification of blocks is to be done in consultation with CGWB /concerned State Governments. Preparation of DPR will be undertaken by Nodal agency in association with State dept/ CGWB. After submission and approval of DPR,  implementation of rain water harvesting and artificial recharge works will be carried out by identified nodal agency through pooling of resources from other programmes such as MNREGP, integrated watershed management programme (WMP), Rural drinking water programme etc supplemented by MoWR.
