Ranchi: Under the Nilambar-Pitambar Jal Samridhi Yojana, the upper Tand land is being treated via saturation mode by adopting the principle of watershed management.

The state government is creating opportunities for irrigation through rainwater harvesting.

Due to this, the villagers are getting a means of employment in their village itself as well as water that would ordinarily flow away during the monsoons is being conserved. Under the Nilambar- Pitambar Jal Samridhi Yojana, 73,034 schemes of Trench-cum- Bund and 60,820 schemes of Field Bund were completed in the year 2021-22.
