The economy of Assam is predominantly agricultural based, as about 85% of the populations live on agricultural activities for their livelihood and 15 % is dependent on allied services. The gross cropped area of the State is 41,59,977 hectare. In order to cope up with the food deficit caused by growth in population and to ensure food security, multiple cropping with irrigation support is highly necessary. Moreover due to vagaries of nature, global warming, ecological imbalance and erratic monsoon, the rain fall is not taking place at right time to the help of the agricultural practices. As such irrigation input is found to be the only alternative which can provide right amount of water at right time to carry out agricultural activity.
