According to a government spokeswoman, the Uttar Pradesh government has agreed to boost the compensation granted to farmers under the “Har Khet ko Paani” program from 75,000 to 1.75 lakh rupees for medium-deep tube well drilling.
The grant for deep tube well boring has also increased from 1 lakh to 2.65 lakh, he added. The Chief Minister Small Irrigation Scheme requires that water be provided to every field, thus the government “has made various adjustments to the earlier regulations regarding medium deep tube wells and deep tube wells,” he stated.

The water distribution system’s initial funding of $10,000 has been increased to $14,000. The fixed cost for separately powering tube wells, however, will continue to be $68,000, the official said.
Also, instead of 1.53 lakh, the general category of farmers would now receive 2.57 lakh for the installation of tube wells. SC/ST farmers would also be able to install a 5-horsepower (hp) solar-powered pump on their tube wells with the help of a Rs. 3.85 lakh subsidy.
The highest payout that farmers who belong to the scheduled caste group are now entitled for drilling tube wells is 5.74 lakh rupees, up from 4.70 lakh for medium deep tube well borings.
For farmers in the general category, the grant amount for powering tube wells will remain at 68,000. Nevertheless, the amount allocated for tube wells has increased from 1.78 lakh to 3.47 lakh.
Farmers in the scheduled caste category would now be eligible for a maximum prize on tube wells for deep tube well borings of 6.64 lakh, up from 4.95 lakh. He said that the purchase of solar pumps will be made through the Gem portal, registered suppliers, and UPNEDA.
