Andhra Pradesh Pachayat Raj & Rural Development (RD.II) Department G.O.Ms.No. 6 Dated:18.01.2016

Read the following:

  • 1)G.O.Ms.No.108, P.R.& R.D. (RDII) Department , Dated:11.12.2015
  • 2)From the Commissioner, PR&RD Lr.No.3392/NTRJS-Phase-II/ 2015, Dated: 28.12.2015. 

1.Government, vide the reference first read above, approved the NTR Jala Siri Phase-II bore-well Project for small and marginal farmers of the seven backward districts of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Vishakapatnam, Chittoor, Kurnool, YSR Kadapa and Anantapuramu in the State, and issued the guidelines duly adhering to the frame work of the Andhra Pradesh Water, Land and Trees Act, 2002.
2. In the reference second read above, the Commissionner, PR&RD, A.P., Hyderabad has submitted a proposal to extend the NTR Jala Siri Phase-II bore-well Project to the remaining Districts in the State of Andhra Pradesh i.e., East Godavari, West Godavari, Krishna, Guntur, Prakasam and SPSR Nellore.
3. Accordingly, Government after careful examination of the proposal, hereby approve and permit the Commissioner, PR&RD to extend the NTR Jala Siri Phase-II bore-well Project to the remaining Districts in the State of Andhra Pradesh i.e., East Godavari, West Godavari, Krishna, Guntur, Prakasam and SPSR Nellore with the following guidelines:
Guidelines :-

I The Mission:

Government have decided to go in for bore-wells in the six districts of the State (i.e., East Godavari, West Godavari, Krishna, Guntur, Prakasam and SPSR Nellore) by optimally utilizing the available ground-water resources and recharge levels.
An additional 73,740 bore-wells have been identified in command areas.

II. Objectives of the bore-well Project:

Conjunctive use of surface and ground water:
The programme essentially focuses on utilization of available water resources and to promote conjunctive use of surface water and groundwater. This ensures recharge of ground-water extracted from new bore-wells from surface water in the vicinity and also recharge from applied irrigation in command areas.

III. Optimal use of available Groundwater resources – improving the Primary sector GSDP:

(a) Optimal use of available ground-water resources by adopting additional recharge and high water use efficiency system like micro irrigation etc., helps improving the livelihoods of the farmers and there-by considerably scale up the primary sector GSDP. Based on the annual replenishment of ground water resource and present utilization levels, certain additional bore-wells have been found feasible in the State, especially in command areas. However, the basic norm of limiting the total utilization not exceeding 70% of the available ground-water resource in the area (Safe Areas) is kept in mind.
(b) Providing adequate water for the agriculture activities is one of the pre-requisites for achieving Double Digit Growth in primary sector / agriculture sector. The proposed new additional bore wells are expected to enhance / supplement the existing water supplies to the agriculture activity. Proposing minimum one recharge pit or water harvesting structure in the vicinity of the bore-well together with implementation of better management practices like MIP (drip and sprinkler) help maintain ground-water sustainability. Keeping in view all the above facts, it is proposed to take up selective bore- well programme for eligible and needy small and marginal farmers.
(c) The programme is planned to be in convergence with funds to be provided under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS), Transmission Corporation of Andhra Pradesh (APTRANSCO), and the State Government Fund.

IV Procedure :

(a) District Committee / State Committee – Summary


(i) The eligible beneficiary shall submit filled-in application along with the following documents :
Copy of Pattedar pass book and Aadhar card for identification as he/she is a small and marginal farmer. Site feasibility certificate for drilling of bore well.
(ii) The Ground Water Department shall undertake ‘Site selection’ by conducting ground-water investigations (by utilising services of certified geologists/ geophysicists, field geologists of Rural Development Department, etc.) and issue feasibility certificate. During the ground-water survey, the Andhra Pradesh Water, Land and Trees Act,2002 (APWALTA) norms should be followed and the expected yield should be more than 4,500 liters per hour, for recommending a bore-well site. The farmer will be guided about the design and construction of well. During the survey, latitude / longitude should be collected along with the photograph of beneficiary/ beneficiaries in the selected site.
