Rationalisation of Minor Irrigation Statistics Scheme:
The objective of the scheme is to build a comprehensive & reliable data base in the Minor Irrigation Sector for future planning. It has become necessary since Minor Irrigation Development in the States/UTs are taken up by multiple organizations and there is no unified agency for compiling data on Minor Irrigation in the totality of the State/UT. Under the Scheme, posts are sanctioned in the Nodal Departments in States/UTs to coordinate the statistical activities for creation of sound & firm database of Minor Irrigation Sector. Central grants are given to each State/UT for maintenance of the Statistical cell and conduct of Census of Minor Irrigation Projects on quinquennial basis and ad hoc Sample Survey. These cells are responsible for furnishing Quarterly Progress Reports on development of Minor Irrigation in the totality of the state to the Ministry of Water Resources and fulfil other objectives of the Scheme.
The RMIS scheme, started in VII Plan as independent Centrally Sponsored Plan scheme, has been converted into Central Sector scheme under the broad scheme ‘Development of Water Resources Information System’ in XI Plan.
(a) Census of Minor Irrigation schemes:
Under the scheme four censuses of Minor Irrigation projects with reference years 1986-87, 1993-94, 2000-01 and 2006-07 respectively were completed & the reports have been published (except for 4th MI Census at central level), Some states have published the results of the 4th MI census at state level.
