It will support regional farmers with latest farming technologies such as drip irrigation, meant for water deficient regions like Bundelkhand.
The project will address the water scarcity in Bundelkhand and its adjoining regions, and will become a role model for ground water management, irrigation and potable water management for the rest of the country.
