Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY) :
PMKSY was approved by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs on 01.07.2015 with an outlay of Rs. 50,000 crore for a period of 5 years (2015-16 to 2019-20). The vision of PMKSY is to ensure access to some means of protective irrigation to all agricultural farms in the country – to produce ‘per drop more crop. Thus bringing much desired rural prosperity. PMKSY is strategized by focusing on end-to end solution in irrigation supply chain, viz. water sources, distribution network, efficient farm level applications, extension services on new technologies & information etc. based on comprehensive planning process at district/State level
