D) Rationalization of Minor Irrigation Scheme

    It is a 100% Centrally Sponsored Scheme. It is being implementing since 1986-87 in Haryana as per the guidelines received from the Ministry of Water Resources (Govt. of India). So far, four censuses have been conducted in the country taking, 1986-87, 1993-94, 2001-02 and 2006-07 as the reference years. The preparatory work of filling up the schedules is in progress at field level in respect of 5th Minor Irrigation Census with base year 2013-14. Now the data of 5706 villages out of 7088 villages have been completed and remaining work is near completion and is expected to be completed within a month. The very purpose of this scheme is to ascertain the extent of irrigation from Minor sources having Cultivable Command Area up to 2000 hectares. It gives information of irrigation potential created and potential utilized which proves very useful for the Planner and Research Scholars in the Irrigation and Agricultural Sector. An amount of Rs.85.00 lakh has been proposed for the year 2016-17 for smooth functioning of this scheme.
