प्रधान मंत्री कृषि सिंचाई योजना (पीएमकेएसवाई - पूर्व आईडब्ल्यूएमपी)

General :

IWMP is a modified programme of erstwhile Drought Prone Areas Programme (DPAP), Desert Development Programme (DDP) and Integrated Wastelands Development Programme (IWDP) of the Department of Land Resources. This consolidation is for optimum use of resources, sustainable outcomes and integrated planning. The scheme was launched during 2009-10. The programme is being implemented as per Common Guidelines for Watershed Development Projects 2008 revised edition 2011. The main objectives of the IWMP are to restore the ecological balance by harnessing, conserving and developing degraded natural resources such as soil, vegetative cover and water. The outcomes are prevention of soil erosion, regeneration of natural vegetation, rain water harvesting and recharging of the ground water table. This enables multi-cropping and the introduction of diverse agro-based activities, which help to provide sustainable livelihoods to the people residing in the watershed area.

The salient features of IWMP are as below:

  1. Setting up of Dedicated Institutions with multi-disciplinary experts at State level -
    1. State Level Nodal Agency (SLNA),
    2. District level - Watershed Cell cum Data Centre (WCDC),
    3. Project level - Project Implementing Agency (PIA) and
    4. Village level - Watershed Committee (WC).
  2. Cluster Approach in selection and preparation of projects: Average size of project - about 5,000 ha.
  3. Enhanced Cost Norms from Rs. 6000 per ha.toRs.12,000/ha. in plains; Rs.15,000/ ha in difficult/hilly areas
  4. Uniform Funding pattern of 90:10 between Centre & States.(Now Funding Pattern is changed to 60:40w.e.f2015-16).
  5. Flexibility in the project period i.e. 4 to 7 years
  6. Scientific planning of the projects by using IT, remote sensing techniques, GIS facilities for planning and monitoring & evaluation
  7. Earmarking of project funds for DPR preparation (1%), Entry point activities (4%), Capacity building (5%), Monitoring (1%) and Evaluation (1%), Watershed Works (56%).
  8. Introduction of new livelihood component with earmarking of project fund under Watershed Projects i.e. 9% of project fund for livelihoods for asset-less people and 10% for production system & micro-enterprises and 3% for consolidation phase.
  9. Delegation of power of sanction of projects to States.


The basic objectives of the scheme are:-

  1. Utilization of land according to the capability.
  2. Put adequate vegetal cover on soil during rainy season.
  3. Conserve as much rainwater as possible where it falls.
  4. Drain out excess rain water at a safe velocity to a storage pond for future use.
  5. In case ofrun offwater, put checks at suitable intervals to avoid gully formation Soil erosion and recharge of ground water.
  6. To increase productivity per unit area, per unit time and per unit of water.
  7. To increase crop intensity the rough enter cropping.
  8. To increase the combined inter related crop which could link to live stock, fishery,afforstation- SHGs horticulture, floriculture, pasture.
  9. Improve infrastructural facilities of storage, transportation and marketing.
  10. Formation of SHGs for their income generating activities by developing their skills and resources.
  11. Formation of user group to make the watershed programme a success and sustainable.
  12. Rural energy management.
  13. To provide drinking water.


Ministry of Agriculture, Department of Agriculture and Co-operational New Delhi, has launched a new scheme “PradhanMantriKrishiSichayeeYojana(PMKSY)” with effect from 2015-16 having four components mentioned below

  • Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme(AIBP)
  • PMKSY(HarKhetkoPani)
  • PMKSY(Per Drop More Crop)
  • PMKSY(Watershed Development)

Hence forth IWMP will be part of PMKSY- Watershed with more or less same objectives as of IWMP. In future the Projects under the PMKSY will be approved by the State Level Sanctioned Committee (SLSC) onthe basis of District Irrigation Plan (DIP) and State Irrigation Plan (SIP).Pattern of assistance under PMKSY is 60:40i.e60% of Central Share and balance of 40% as State Share where as earlier funding pattern was 90:10i.e90% Central Share and 10% State Share.

Agriculture Department of the State is the nodal Department for implementation of PMKSY.SLSC under the Chairmanship of Chief Secretary of the State who is the final project approval authority. Besides this Inter Departmental Working Group(IDWG) comprising of Secretaries of the line Departments of Agriculture, Horticulture, Rural Development, Water Resources/Environment & Forest, Departments dealing with Ground water Resources, drinking water, town planning, industrial policy etc will also be constituted for coordinationamong the Department for the implementation of the PMKSY.

National Steering Committee (NSC) will be constituted under the Chairmanship of Prime Minister for monitoring of PMKSY at the apex level. For implementing the works in the field, there will be a District Level Implementation Committee under the chairmanship of Districts Collector.

New scheme for water conservation and water harvesting works in over exploited blocks of the state.

Govt. of India, Ministry of Agriculture hasalso releasedits share of Rs.1273lakhand balance 40% state share of Rs. 849.0lakhshas been released by the State Govt. Hence, so far anamount of Rs. 2122.0Lakhhave been released to SLNA. The scheme is to be implemented in the notified overexploited blocks of the state. Central Ground Water Board (CGWB) hasnotified 22blocks of 11 districts as over exploited blocks. The details of overexploited blocks are as under:-
