Krishi Bhagya to benefit Kodagu farmers from this year 20.6.2017 Deccan Herald - District
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. The farming activities in district, however, had taken a set back the last few years with deficit rain.

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

City's water woes stay afloat 17.6.2017 DNA: Popular News
With the steady rise in mercury and the dog days of summer still hanging, the National Capital continues to suffer from a spiralling water crisis. 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. Experts say Delhi does not actually face a crisis when it comes to availability of water. The crisis lies in its supply as there is no equity in distribution. According to informal estimations, there are leakages that account for 25 per cent of the total water produced. Unfortunately, the city's water utility — Delhi Jal Board (DJB) — has not been ...
