Descriptif
Scope of the Study
The present study covers various aspects of groundwater irrigation in Haryana ranging from availability to accessibility of groundwater. It shall examine the dynamics of groundwater availability and utilization as well as the twin problems, waterlogging and groundwater depletion. The study also examines of groundwater quality for agricultural usages in different regimes of groundwater availability. Further the study provides insight about inequality in groundwater access across the regime as well as land holding size of farmers. Lastly the study evaluates the structure and role of groundwater marketsin accessibility of groundwater resources in different groundwater availability regimes.

Objectives of Study
The present study is aimed at achieving following specific objectives. 1. To evaluate the role of groundwater resources in irrigation development in Haryana and spatial variations in level of tubewell irrigation in the state. 2. To map the level of groundwater potential and its harnessing or development in spatio-temporal context. 3. To examine the dynamics of depth to water level in different regions and under different groundwater regimes. 4. To analyse the groundwater quality for agricultural usage under different groundwater regimes. 5. To compute the physical and economic accessibility of groundwater resources and parameters affecting them in different groundwater availability regimes. 6. To assess the size and structure of groundwater markets and factors associated with them.
