Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana
Har Khet ko Pani “Prime Minister Krishi Sinchayee Yojana”
- Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY) has been formulated with the vision of extending the coverage of irrigation ‘Har Khet ko pani’ and improving water use efficiency ‘More crop per drop’ in a focused manner with end to end solution.
- The scheme was launched on July 2015. PMKSY has been approved for implementation across the country with an outlay of Rs.50, 000 crore in five years.
- The scheme is implemented by Ministries of Agriculture, Water Resources and Rural Development.
End to End Solution to Irrigation Supply Chain-
- Water sources– Creation, repair & restoration of water sources. It includes Rain water harvesting /Micro storage, e.g. ponds. Secondary storage structures, Groundwater sources, e.g. Dug wells/Tube wells River lift irrigation.
- Distribution Network– Developing/Strengthening distribution network for bringing water to farm.
- Farm Level Management & Water Use Efficiency– Promoting water efficient technologies, Encouraging community irrigation management. It includes Drip & Sprinkler System; Cropping alignment, on-farm development, Efficient and energy saving (e.g. solar powered), water lifting devices.
Fragmented approach rather than ‘end to end’ solution-
- Water sources– Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme (AIBP) Integrated Watershed Management Programme (IWMP), MGNREGS, NMSA.
- Distribution– Command Area Development (CAD).
- Management- National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA): Drip-sprinkler irrigation, Moisture conservation.
Schemes Merged with PMKSY
- Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme (AIBP)
- River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation, Integrated Watershed Management Programme (IWMP) and
- On Farm Water Management (OFWM).
Objective of PMKSY
- To achieve convergence of investments in irrigation at the field level,
- Expand cultivable area under assured irrigation,
- Improve on-farm water use efficiency to reduce wastage of water,
- Enhance the adoption of precision-irrigation and other water saving technologies (More crop per drop),
- Enhance recharge of aquifers and introduce sustainable water conservation practices by exploring the feasibility of reusing treated municipal waste water and
- Attract greater private investment in precision irrigation system.
Components of PMKSY
- Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme & Common Area Development.
- Minor Irrigation (Har Khet ko pani).
- Watershed Development
- Micro irrigation (Per drop More crop)
- Per drop More crop- other interventions
- Convergence with MGNREGA– For achieving the goal of bringing irrigation water to every farm, there is need to converge all ongoing efforts and to bridge the gaps through location specific interventions.
Pattern of Assistance
The Assistance payable to the beneficiary under the micro-irrigation will be 55% for Small & Marginal farmers and 45% for other farmers. The central government and State government will contribute in the ratio of 60:40 for all states except North Eastern & Himalayan region where funding pattern is in the ratio of 90:10. Whereas, 100% central assistance is for Union Territories.
The assistance payable to the farmers is limited to an overall ceiling of 5 hectare/beneficiary.
- National Level- National Steering Committee (NSC) at Dept. of Agriculture & Cooperation with members from Ministry of Water Resources, Ministry of Rural Development, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Environment & Forest, Dept. of Land Resources etc. and representatives of State Governments for periodic review and to provide strategic direction to programme implementation.
- State Level- State Level Sanctioning Committee (SLSC) with participation from relevant State Departments of Agriculture, Irrigation, Water Resources, Rural Development, Forest, Soil Conservation etc.
Area Covered 2020-21
- Micro Irrigation– Drip: 3.57 Lakh Ha. Sprinkler: 5.81 Lakh Ha
Total: 9.38 Lakh Ha.
- Other Interventions
Potential Created For Protective Irrigation : 3.65 Lakh Ha
