I am from village Halgara (Dist Latur, Marathwada region) which is affected by drought for past 5 years. Halgara is receiving below 700mm (15 years avg) rainfall for last 5 years (excluded 2016).
We completed de-silting work on canal of length 5km (60ft wide x 8ft deep) between Jan - July 2016 with cost of INR 28 Lac with people participation and created 20 crore liter water storage. We are moving into self sufficient state by 2017.
In April-May 2017, we are working on finishing remaining sub canal restoration (approx length 10km). This will cost us approx Rs.30 Lakh.
