Command Area Development and Water Management

The Command Area Development and Water Management (CADWM) Programme was started initially in December 1974 to improve the irrigation potential utilization and optimize the agricultural production and productivity through integrated and coordinated approach of efficient water management.

Subsequently, the scope of the programme was expanded by incorporating new activities under the programme. The Ministry of Water Resources coordinates and monitors the implementation of CADWM at the national level and the Programme is being implemented through the Command Area Development Authorities (CADAs) at the State level.
