India has about 141 m.Ha of net sown area out of which about 65 million hectare that represents total of 45% is in the present scenario covered under irrigation. Extensive dependency on the rainfall makes cultivation in unirrigated areas a high risk, less productive profession.

Empirical evidences suggest that assured or protective irrigation gives the farmers encouragement to invest more and more in farming technology and inputs leading to productivity enhancement and increased farm income.

The overreaching vision of Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY) that was launched in the year 2015 by our honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi ensures the access to some means of protective irrigation to all agricultural farms in the country, to produce ‘per drop more crop’, hence bringing much desired rural prosperity.

Components of the Scheme

Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme (AIBP) : It focuses on timely completion of the national projects of ongoing irrigation.
PMKSY (Har Khet ko Pani):
1. Creating of new water sources through Minor Irrigation on both the surface and ground water too.
2. Repairing, restoring and renovating the water bodies and strengthening carrying capacity of the traditional water sources.
3. Strengthening and creating distribution network from the sources to the farm;
4. Ground water development in respective abundant areas.
5. Also, Improving the water management and distribution system for water bodies to take advantage of the available source that is not tapped to its maximum capacity.
6. Diverting the water from different abundant sources to the scarce areas.
7. Creation of traditional water storage systems like Jal Mandir (Gujarat); Khatri, Kuhl (H.P.); Zabo (Nagaland); Eri, Ooranis (T.N.); Dongs (Assam); Katas, Bandhas (Odisha and M.P.) etc. at feasible locations.

2. Constructing micro irrigation structures for supplementing the source creation activities including tube wells and dug wells.
3. Extension activities for promotion of scientific moisture conservation and agronomic measures including cropping alignment to maximize use of available water including rainfall and minimize irrigation requirement and many more.
Watershed Development:
1. Effectively manages the runoff water and focuses on improving the soil & moisture conservation activities too. For example, ridge area treatment, drainage line 5 treatment, rain water harvesting, in – situ moisture conservation and other allied activities on the basis of the watershed.
2. Converging with MGNREGS for creating water source to full potential in identified backward rainfed blocks including renovation of traditional water bodies.


Implementation of the Scheme

• Krishi Sinchai Yojna has been allotted the total budget of 50,000 Cr for the period of 5 years as is the targeted duration of the scheme (2015-20).
• PMKSY is to be implemented in an area development approach, adopting decentralized state level planning and projectised execution, allowing the states to draw their irrigation development plans based on district/blocks plans with a horizon of 5 to 7 years. States can take up projects based on the District/State Irrigation Plan.
• The National Steering Committee (NSC) of PMKSY which is working under the chairmanship of our Prime Minister provides direction of policies to programme framework and a National Executive Committee (NEC), which is functioning under the chairmanship of Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog is assigned the work of programme implementation at national level.
