Jain Irrigation, the world leaders and pioneers of ‘Resource To Root’ and drip irrigation concept has received Letter of Intent from Water Resources Department, Government of Madhya Pradesh to execute the Mohanpura Major Project.
The Mohanpura Major Project is the largest of its kind, ’Future Ready’ Micro Irrigation project. In this project, the total Cultivable Command area of 228,475 acre is to be brought under Micro irrigation. The value of the project is INR 9,750 Million and the project is to be completed in 36 months.
The project involves survey, design, engineering, planning and execution of various components like Pump houses and Pumping Machinery electrical sub stations, delivery chambers, civil work, up-gradation of ’Rojya’ Dam, MS rising mains, distribution network up to 1 Ha chak, automation, SCADA for the pumping and network system and Operation and Maintenance for three years after completion.
This pressurized piped irrigation project is to be designed in such a way that every farmer will be able to attach their micro irrigation systems at a later stage to the outlets provided at every 1 Ha level. This will ensure ‘Har Khet Ko Pani’.
The project Mohanpura is located in Rajgarh district- one of the under developed districts of the state. Completion of this project will not only save huge amount of precious water source, but will also increase the yield/productivity of the crops being grown in the project area, resulting into ‘Doubling Farmers Income’ which is an ultimate goal of the government for farming community.
