Minor Irrigation Sector under Land Purchase Scheme
a) Bore wells with submersible pump sets
The main objective of the scheme is to provide Irrigation facility by drilling of Bore well, Installation of Submersible Pump sets energisation and Laying of Pipe line etc., so as to irrigate their fields, improve the yield / harvest for substantial income to their families.
The Bore wells shall be taken up duly ensuring electricity feasibility (electricity feasibility certificate) from TSTRANSCO and ground water clearance (sufficient water yield) from Ground Water Dept subject to the provisions of WALTA. Individuals or Groups of SC farmers with an extent of 2.00 acres land and above without any irrigation facility can be identified.
b) Shallow Tube Wells with Submersible Pumpsets
The main objective of the scheme is to provide Irrigation by drilling of Tube well, Installation of Submersible Pump sets energisation and Laying of Pipe line etc., so as to irrigate their fields, improve the yield / harvest for substantial income to their families.
The Tube wells shall be taken up duly ensuring Electricity feasibility (Line laid certificates) from TSTRANSCO and Ground Water clearance (with sufficient water yield) from Ground Water Dept, with the permission under WALTA .A Group of SC farmers minimum 2 or 3 beneficiaries with an extent of 3.00 to 5.00 acres and above of land without any irrigation facility can be identified.
c) Submersible Pumpsets to Borewells
The scheme is meant for the poor SC marginal / small farmers, similar to the execution of Bore wells above, who have got Bore wells drilled in their lands at their own cost and who cannot afford for purchase of Pumpsets. The Corporation will provide Submersible Pump Sets to the drilled Bore Wells, ensuring sufficient water yield and energisation etc, so as to put the source to use for irrigation immediately.
d) Oil Engines
Keeping in view the demand raised by some Executive Directors for Oil engines, where electricity feasibility is not there, but sufficient water is available for irrigation, it is proposed to allow Oil engines examining case by case for the benefit of SC small and marginal farmers to bring the lands of LPS under cultivation. A certificate of non-feasibility from A.E., TS TRANSCO shall be obtained in support of such proposals. The EDs should ensure that lifting of water shall be by lawful means of water resources.
e) Pipeline for Irrigation
The scheme is meant for the poor SC marginal / small formers LPS who have water sources already existing/ created at their own cost, with enough water yield, and are in need of pipeline for extensive distribution to the fields. The Corporation will provide Pipeline for Irrigation
In the case of minor irrigation schemes, the beneficiaries whose lands are not covered under Jalaprabha shall only be considered in order to avoid duplication. Certificate to the effect that they are not covered under Jalaprabha is to be taken from application recommendation authorities (MPDO) / DWMA authorities.
Under Minor Irrigation Sector, the Submersible Pump sets, Electric Motors and Oil engines should be purchased on approval of the District Purchase Committee (DPC) from approved firms / Govt. recognized Firms or from their authorized Dealers. The Accessories should be ensured as per the NABARD norms.
