irrigation projects lying unused in Maharashtra - near 88 %

Published on by

According to Maharashtra's Economic Survey for 2014-15,out of the 70,000 small irrigation projects constructed in the state, only 12% have been utilised.The projects, worth Rs. 4,500 crore, have fallen into disrepair, as there is lack of expert staff to monitor them.

That is a pity, we have experts, do we lack political support?
