In search of tanks: some hidden facts

, : In search of tanks: some hidden facts. Economic and Political Weekly 28(26): A53-A60

There has been a decline in tank irrigation in India and a decline in the condition of irrigation tanks. Reasons for the decline included silt accumulation, frequent droughts, inadequate supplies to tanks, poor conditions in inlets, erosion of tank bunds, and poor funding for maintenance. The characteristics of traditional irrigation institutions (TIIs) are outlined and their control over water, land and land transfers are considered.
