Drought-affected Regions in India After two consecutive years of weak monsoons, a quarter of India's population, spread across 10 states, has been reeling from severe water shortage. Here are Top 10 Drought Prone Areas in India which suffer through drought situation every year: Chattisgarh.

There are many parts of the state of Chattisgarh which receives drought situations. That is why the government had announced the. Obtaining sufficient drinking water with acceptable quality under circumstances of lack, such as droughts, is a challenge in drought-prone areas of India.

This study examined rural drinking water availability issues during a recent drought () through 22 focus group discussions (FGDs) in a drought-prone catchment of by: 4. ADVERTISEMENTS: Significance of Planning for Drought-Prone Areas: 1.

The drought-prone areas form a significant proportion of the country’s area. These areas are characterised by low productivity which is a major cause of regional imbalances. These areas are a strain on the country’s financial resources. The Drought-Prone Areas Programme: ADVERTISEMENTS: The programme was launched [ ].

“The drought-prone taluks have prepared action plans for ₹50 lakh each for addressing the drinking water crisis.

Other taluks have prepared an action plan for ₹10 lakh each. We are well. India’s water quality problem is reaching crisis proportions, and today at least crore habitations are affected by poor water quality. Over crore people are exposed to health hazards.

The district collector has directed irrigation, water authority and other departments to take steps to address drinking water shortage and related issues.

Maharashtra: 4-year-high stock in 35 dams. India being an agrarian country, our farmers depend mainly on groundwater for irrigation. With increasing population, lesser land holdings and urbanisation, deeper borewells are dug for groundwater abstraction.

Borewells & tubewells, are very similar. Both are basically vertical drilled wells, bored into an underground aquifer in the earths surface, to extract water for various purposes.

ADVERTISEMENTS: Some of the important drought prone areas of India are as follows: Out of the total geographical area of India, almost one-sixth area with 12% of the population is drought prone; the areas that receive an annual rainfall up to 60 cm are the most prone.

A water-stress profile is presented on a) the role of improved water supply for self-sufficient crop production and b) the number of individuals jointly depending on each flow unit of water. Major Drought Prone Regions Of India India has suffered major and worst drought over the 18th and 19th centuries,resulted millions of deaths and led to major Indian famines such as Odisha famine of ,Bengal famine of and Bihar famine of –   India supports 15 per cent of the world’s population but has only 4 per cent of the world’s water resources.

World Bank data show that only 35 per cent of India’s agricultural land is irrigated. Water was a scarce and treasured commodity in Tamna village, 10km from Purulia town, till Mahato found a way to sell safe drinking water at an affordable : Rakhee Roytalukdar.

• Desilting enhances (restores) the water storage capacities of water bodies. The more the quantity of silt removed, the more would be its storage capacity. • It makes way for water to seep, thus recharging ground water to be tapped through wells.

Thus, water availability to villages for drinking and irrigation increases. India News: The drinking water ministry has asked 18 drought-prone states to utilise 25% of the Central budget available with them to mitigate drinking water cris.

The National Guidelines for the Management of Drought have been formulated after a 'nine-step' process-taking on board, through a process of wide-consultation, various Central Ministries/ Departments, States/Union Territories and other stake-holders, including Scientific and TechnicalFile Size: 1MB.

8. In some watersheds (Alwal, Boypally and Ettam), water storage in percolation tanks providing drinking water for cattle population even during summer months.

9. About million people are affected by drought in India, the government has said, as the country reels from severe water shortages and desperately poor farmers suffer crop losses.Drought in India has resulted in tens of millions of deaths over the 18th, 19th, and 20th agriculture is heavily dependent on the country's climate: a favorable southwest summer monsoon is critical to securing water for irrigating India's crops.

In parts of India, failure of the monsoons causes water shortages, resulting in below-average crop yields.
