Master plan for artificial recharge to groundwater in India 2020
Master Plan for artificial Recharge to Groundwater in India was prepared by CGWB in the year 2013, which was the revision of the conceptual plan made in 2002. In view of the active participation of central and State agencies in water conservation, a need was felt to revise the master plan prepared in 2013. Accordingly, an inter departmental committee was constituted by the Ministry to revise the master plan and the document is the resultant of the efforts of the committee through the Regional offices of CGWB. The revised master plan for artificial recharge to groundwater has been made for the whole country at the level of district/Block. The plan is macro plan formulated to work out the feasibility of various structures for the different terrain conditions of the country and respective estimated cost. Hence, the revision of the master plan is like any other master plan prepared for a State or city, which brings out the broad outline of the project and expected investments and for implementation, DPR has to be prepared at an implementable level like any other water supply project or city development project.
