Irrigation and Rural Development-A Sceptical View

A Sceptical View M V Nadkarni A study of the impact of irrigation in terms of a comparison of output and income from irrigated and dry plots within a holding, or irrigated and dry holdings within a village, is likely to give an exaggerated picture of its role. The approach here instead is through a comparison across villages, because irrigation should be expected to have an impact on the development of the village as a whole including its weaker sections.
