Khet-Talab Yojana

The objective of this scheme is making available surface and ground water available for all round agricultural development. Farmers of every category are given the benefit of this scheme. A farmer can choose one of the three models. Fifty per cent subsidy is given to all categories of farmers under the scheme, whose upper limit is Rs 16 thousand 350.

The ponds dug in farmers’ fields have proved quite successful in stopping and conserving rainwater, which use to go waster earlier. One tank under the scheme irrigates quite a considerable area.
