Scheme :: Deep Borewell Secha Karyakrama

Introduction to the scheme

Government of Odisha launched the scheme in 2010-11 to explore ground water resources in hard rock areas of the state. The main objective of the scheme is

  • to provide irrigation facilities to small and marginal farmers through installation of deep borewells covering cultivated area of minimum two hectare.

It was proposed to install around 4000 nos of borewell projects each with an ayacut of approximately 2 Ha at an estimated cost of approximately Rs 2.5 lakh to bring around 8,000 Ha under assured irrigation in both khariff and rabi for 2010-11 in 17 districts of the state. Subsequently, the unit cost of the borewell was enhanced to Rs. 3.15 lakh during the year 2012-13 and to  Rs.3.64 lakh  during 2013-14.Now it has been enhanced to Rs. 3.88 Lakh during 2015-16 and the facility has been extended to  26 districts of the state (18 Non-KBK districts, 8 KBK districts) excluding Bhadrak, Kendrapara, Jagatsinghpur and Puri district.

Priorities

  • priority for implementation would be given in blocks having less than 35% irrigation coverage

Funding arrangement

  • The average unit cost of each borewell would be around Rs.3.88 lakhs including electrical substations, power-line and pumping units.

  • Beneficiary contribution in the project would be 10% of the project cost subject to a maximum of Rs.20,000/-.

  • Beneficiary is to pay Rs.1000/- (non-refundable) after scrutiny of application and the remaining Rs.19,000/- would be paid after successful completion of drilling and testing of bore well.

  • Power supply would be made up to borewell point and the pumping unit. The beneficiary has to bear all cost towards service connection, inspection fee and security deposit and enter into power supply agreement with respective DISTCO.

  • The borewell after energisation would be handed over to the beneficiary for operation and maintenance.

  • Beneficiary would pay the energy charges regularly to the DISTCOs after taking over the unit.
