Economic return to investment in irrigation in India (Inglês)

This paper reports on an investigation into the efficiency of investment in irrigation, both surface and groundwater, both public and private, in India. The authors first present a brief history of the development of irrigation in India discussing physical achievements and financial expenditures. Economic rates of return to investments in irrigation are then analyzed using rates calculated in World Bank project appraisal and completion reports, Planning Commission project evaluation studies, and other Indian sources; and using the results of an econometric analysis undertaken by the authors. Factors limiting the efficiency of investments are analyzed, separately for surface and groundwater development; and policies for increasing the efficiency of the investments are discussed.
