India - Andhra Pradesh Irrigation Project - environmental assessment (English)

The Srisailam Right Branch Canal (SRBC) and the Kakatiya Main Canal of the Sri Rama Sagar Project (SRSP) and their commands constitute an irrigation project aimed at eradicating poverty in the Rayala Seema region. They comprise the major components of the Third Andhra Pradesh Irrigation Project, which completes the spillover work of the Second Andhra Pradesh Irrigation Project. This detailed socio-economic survey of the affected households is written to prepare for drawing up a comprehensive and viable resettlement and rehabilitation plan. It studies the impact of land acquisition, a pre-requisite for formulating an economic rehabilitation plan. It finds a substantial number of land holdings reduced to lower levels and many people becoming landless after project-related land acquisition. The study shows a slight decrease in the overall irrigated area under dug wells but an increase of irrigated area under bore/tube wells. Total household production loss appears high, and calls for reasonable rehabilitation support to "project-affected persons"--persons or households who lost 25 percent or more of their land and the landless attached to affected households. The report relies on household surveys to reveal the qualitative and quantitative changes in housing, livestock ownership, the displacement of cultivators into wage labor, agricultural implements and equipment, total annual household income and expenditures, and poverty levels.
