  • The rainwater harvesting structures (mini dam) has the capacity of more than 40 AFT to 100 AFT
  • The catchment area of these structures comprised of 1-15 Sq. miles
  • more than 3000 structures (mini dams/ponds) established so far by providing subsidy to the poor farmers
  • The life of these structures is usually 20-30 years (depends upon the proper care of the beneficiary farmers)
  • Feasibility Study Survey of Mini Dam Cell is established since 1982 for providing the technical services during construction of structures.
