Abstract:
Agriculture plays a major role in India’s economy and irrigation is the catalyst for the agriculture development. Now a day’s dependency on irrigation has been increased due to uncertainty of rainfall in India. This paper discusses the development of the irrigation system in India by using the secondary information, which is helpful to provide a background for the objective, based analysis of the irrigation development. In this paper the study focuses on plan wise irrigation potential created and utilized and the gap created between both the irrigation potential which is analysed through statistical methods. Descriptive statistics and parametric regression models and correlation analysis have been employed out to study the relationship. This study is accomplished in SPSS Software. It is observed from the results that the plan wise development of irrigation potential and utilized during the plan periods, we observed that gradually a gap has been created between Irrigation potential created (IPC) and Irrigation potential utilized (IPU) over the plan periods. The results of this study will be used for utilized for coming up with an acceptance policy for groundwater use and its appropriate regulation to avoid future crisis.
