State focuses on irrigation to make farming sustainable 8.5.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Shimla, May 7 Despite topographical constraints and 80 per cent of cultivated rainfed area, the state has made rapid strides in foodgrains and vegetable production which has touched 34 lakh tonnes in the last five years and the government has shifted the focus to irrigation to make agriculture sustainable. The multi-pronged strategy adopted by the government focuses on command area development, micro and medium irrigation schemes, rainfed area development, lift irrigation and borewell scheme, flow irrigation scheme and solar irrigation schemes. Despite a large number of schemes constructed by the Irrigation and Public Health Department, water had not reached farms due to non-development of command area and an area of 1.33 lakh hectare was yet to be covered under the command area development for which Rs 500 crore was required, sources in the department said. To accomplish the task in five years, the government has provided Rs 130 crore for this purpose during 2018-19. Besides, 111 ...

Under the water-conservation drive — Jal Sanchay Abhiyan, which will launch on Tuesday from Kosamdi village, Bharuch district, the government of Gujarat is expecting to collect 11,000 lakh cubic meter area will be covered by deepening 13,000 lakes and reservoirs across the state in a bid to yield more water. Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani, on Sunday said at a press conference on Sunday, "This cause has been initiated by the Gujarat government for the people. We all need to understand the value of every single drop of water and that is why water-conservation drive was the need of the hour that has been initiated with the cooperation of the common man, non-government organisations, corporate sectors and everyone who is part of this society. This will help recharge the groundwater as water tables in state have gone deeper. This drive will be a permanent solution as water collected through different sources will percolate deep in the ground." "We are going by the 5 'R' formula focusing on reviving ...

Gujarat govt's water conservation mission has no checks in place 26.4.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Gujarat government is going overboard with the water conservation drive to be kicked off on May 1. Under the drive, work will be given to private organisations but the government does not have any system to inspect the work they carry out. The government is going to pay NGOs and other organisations for dredging and desilting check dams, lakes and other water bodies, but no third-party inspection system has been set up as part of the mechanism. The drive, 'Sujalam Sufalam Jal Sanchay Abhiyan', will run for the whole month of May. The NGOs, private builders or contractors can do dredging and desilting in water bodies, and construct check dams so that more water can be collected rather than being wasted. In 2002 and 2009, the government had initiated a similar drive, but almost all the bori-band dams collapsed in a few months. Irregularities in construction of check dams and dredging and desilting were also reported during the audit by agencies including the CAG. The state has not yet decided on third-party ...

Thinking ahead to save shrinking Sukhna 26.4.2018 The Tribune
SK Saluja Sukhna is a man-made lake fed by rain water, but increasing climatic variability, extreme weather events and rising temperatures are posing new challenges for the availability of rain water in the region. Experts predict that temperature in India is likely to rise by more than 3°C by the end of the 21st century. This will further worsen the situation due to unpredictable rains and higher evaporation losses. In future, changes in the timing and uneven distribution of rain will further make the inflows more uncertain at Sukhna Lake. The box below shows the position of reservoir filling in India published by the Central water Commission, New Delhi. It reflects the declining trend of water storage during the years 2016 and 2017. Similar is the situation of reservoirs of 12 low dams falling in kandi area in Punjab region. The position of Sukhna is no different from low dams in Kandi area. One main reason for the low water level in Sukhna is its reduced capacity due to heavy siltation. This has in ...
