Abstract

The tanks occupy vital role in the irrigation as well as local ecosystem in the semi-arid and regions of South India. Meanwhile, tank provides multiple uses like source of drinking water for uncountable rural and urban communities and livestock, fish culture, recharge of ground water, control of floods etc. However, after the independence of india the significant source of tank irrigation has drastically decreased due to several socio-economic and institutional factors, particularly the changes in land ownership pattern, caste, class configuration and importance given to canal systems and over exploitation of ground water. At the same time today there is alarm that these valuable and extensive resources are in a state of collapse, contributing to increased drought vulnerability in some of the poorest districts in the country. The main motivation of this thesis is to examine the RESTORATION OF TANKS in South India particularly in case of Telangana state i.e., MISSION KAKATHIYA. The case study also makes an effort to recommend policy guideline measures to revive tank irrigation in telengana. In this context of restoration of tanks the desilting of the tank bed will help in increasing the tank capacity and recharge the ground water. A new sluice and weir was designed and constructed for the accurate discharge of water to the command area for the entire crop period.
