 BEST PRACTICES-
PORTABLE PUMPSETS




                    9
                      BACKGROUND


   About 7.2 lakh hectare paddy could not be sown in kharif 2010.

   About 4 lakh hectare paddy could not be sown in Rabi-Summer
    2010-11.

   Demand from districts for portable pump sets.

   Objective – at least life saving irrigation.




                                                                 10
                       FEATURES - 1
   Source of water – Local water bodies. (Over 10 lakh ponds etc.
    have been constructed under NREGS.)

   Portable, 3.1 HP, petrol/diesel/electric.

   Uniform subsidy of Rs.12000 per pump sets. (Subsidy is 60-75
    per cent, depending upon the model chosen from amongst the
    models approved under the rate contract.)

   Beneficiaries – SHGs/Cooperatives/other groups. (There are
    over 6 lakh credit linked SHGs in west Bengal.)


                                                                11
                     FEATURES - 2
   SHGs etc. are encouraged to lease out pump sets to other
    farmers.
   Lease rent is low and it is decided by three-member block level
    committee.
   Pump sets would remain property of the Govt. for three years.
    Beneficiaries will be fully responsible for maintenance during
    this period.
   After three years, if the three-member block level committee
    does not decide to withdraw the pump sets from the beneficiary
    concerned, ownership of the pump sets would automatically
    stands transferred to the beneficiary.
   MOU is signed between the beneficiary and the ADO.

                                                                 12
                          TARGET
   1 lakh pump sets in two years.

   2010-11: 58000- funds released/allocated.

   2011-12: 42000- to be sanctioned.




                                                13
                            IMPACT

   Life saving irrigation for 5 - 10 lakh hectares.




                                                       14
                           ISSUES


   Number of schemes to be reduced.

   Certainty in allocation under RKVY.

THANK YOU



            16
