(ii) Only one source (Bore well/ Tube well/ Filter point well) is permitted in 5 acres area and the land shall be contiguous block.
(iii) The area shall be in safe category Groundwater basin with the utilization less than 70% of the annual replenishable groundwater in the basin.

(vii) Eligible beneficiaries list is to be approved in the gramasabhas in the respective villages
