Jharkhand government launched Nilamber Pitamber Jal Samriddhi Yojana 2021 one year ago to raise groundwater level across the state. This year, govt. has started Birsa Harit Gram Yojana, Nilambar Pitambar Jal Samridhi Yojana, Veer Shahid Poto Ho Khel Vikas Yojana and Didi Badi Yojana under MGNREGA. In this article, we will tell you about the complete details of the Nilambar Pitamber Jal Samridhi Yojana.

Jharkhand Nilamber Pitamber Jal Samriddhi Yojana 2021

Jharkhand state receives 1,300 to 1,400 mm of rainfall on average per year. However, around 70% of this rainwater used to flow away as 70% of the state is a plateau. Additionally, Jharkhand does not have storage facilities like small check dams which can stop the torrential flow of water and utilise it for irrigation. As a result, districts like Latehar, Garhwa and Palamu faced water crises.

The Jharkhand Nilamber Pitamber Jal Samriddhi Yojana was launched to solve this problem. Under the Nilambar Pitambar Scheme, loose boulder check dams were built near the hills and in hundreds of villages in Jharkhand. These help to control the free flow of rainwater and increase groundwater levels.

Additionally, the construction of trench-cum-bunds (TCB) has helped to conserve rainwater. With the construction of irrigation wells under MGNREGA, farmers are now using drip irrigation facilities on a large scale.

Chief Minister Hemant Soren mentioned that the efforts undertaken under the Nilambar Pitambar scheme were now showing results. Villagers are taking the initiative to conserve water by joining the government’s scheme and this has helped to increase agricultural production as well as the prosperity of the villages.

The scheme is being executed across 4,000 panchayats in the State. In many districts, barren fields have reportedly become green again and are being used for cultivation. Apart from this, people in rural areas have been provided with employment opportunities in their respective villages and panchayats.
