wastage of Ganga water for irrigation

River water is used for irrigation in agriculture. But there is no limit to use that precious water in fields. most of the water is wasted after ploughing the fields. most of families are unable to get water by this. water should be chargable so that it will be used in limited way

At present, there is no water in the Ganga River in River Ganga. In Haridwar, the entire water of the Ganga is removed from Bheemgoda Barrage for irrigation. After the Bheemgoda Barrage, the water of the river is almost dry. We are giving a picture of dry Ganga after Cheela barrage in Rishikesh. In this way, dry Ganga gets under the limelight.

Farmers use most of the water for irrigation. In 2000, 89 percent of the water was used by farmers, 6 percent by industry and 5 percent for domestic use.

To keep Ganga River alive, it is necessary to get less water from Ganga. 

Therefore, attention should be taken to reduce the use of water in agriculture. At present, farmers have to pay minimum cost for water. Farmers have to pay the price of water according to the area of ​​the field. They irrigate five times or irrigate 20 times, they have to pay the same. That's why farmers use more water. To reduce the use of farmer water, it is necessary that the quantity should be charged by the amount of water it uses.

Use of Ganga water for irrigation

To reduce water usage, the cost of water will be increased. Increasing the price of water will increase the burden on the farmers, which will have to be increased by increasing the market value of agricultural products. Currently, additional cost of water can be added in support price of paddy and wheat. After this there will be no additional burden on the farmer.The basic solution to save the Ganga is to determine the cost of water because the consumption of water will only reduce the consumption of water. We request Modi ji to get the right price for the farmer so that farmers use less water. At the same time, farmers should be given high prices for products.
