The Krishi Bhagya scheme, introduced by the state government to help farmers, has been extended to Malnad, hilly areas and coastal districts. Accordingly, the scheme will be introduced in Kodagu in the current year. The scheme was implemented in 2014-15 to help farmers cultivate dry land, mainly due to vagaries of monsoon and was restricted to 23 districts and 107 taluks.

It also supports horticulture crops, mixed cropping and dairy farming" Agriculture Department joint director K Ramappa told ...

Despite the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government's claims of putting in place another summer action plan. Delhi is facing a demand-supply gap of 265 million gallons a day (MGD) of drinking water. It is also fighting a festering battle with Haryana over Yamuna water sharing. The city-state is meeting its 70 per cent of water requirements from the river that has today become a sewage canal in most places. Delhi's worst-hit areas are its pockets in the southwest (rocky terrain), north floodplains (parched) and northwest.
