1 PROGRAMMES AND SCHEMES Monsoon and Crop Sowing Situation during Kharif-2012 As per India Meteorological Department (IMD) data SW Monsoon rainfall for the country as a whole during June- September, 2012 was 92% of the Long Period Average (LPA). Rainfall during June-2012 and July-2012 recorded a deficit of (-) 29% and (-) 13% respectively. However, it improved thereafter to record an excess of (+) 0.12% and (+) 9% over LPA respectively during August and September, Out of the 36 Meteorological Sub-Divisions in the country, 1 received excess (> 20-%), 22 received normal (+19% to -19%) and 13 deficient rainfall (-20% to -59%) during the period of SW Monsoon. Details of sub-division wise rainfall is at Annexure-B. Out of 628 districts for which data is available, 62 (10%) received excess rainfall, 303 (48%) received normal, 235 (37%) received deficient and 28(5%) received scanty rainfall 1. Central Water Commission (CWC) monitors 84 major reservoirs in the country. On account of good rainfall in later months, total storage in these reservoirs reached 105 % of last 10 years s average level as on 4 th October, On that day, total storage stood at 115 Billion Cubic Meter (BCM) which is about 74% of total storage capacity and about 87% level of up to corresponding period of last year. Although, overall storage levels was satisfactory, major States that had lower than average storage levels were Jharkhand(3%), West Bengal (18%), Tripura (48%), Maharashtra (35%), Andhra Pradesh (36%), Karnataka (8%), Kerala (47%) and Tamil Nadu (44%). Basin level storage was lower than average levels in respect of Krishna, Rivers of Kutch and Cauvery etc. 1 Excess: +20% or more of LPA, : -19% to 19% of LPA, Deficient: -20% to -59% of LPA, Scanty: - 60% of beyond.

2 Total kharif area coverage is mha as against sown area of mha during normal years. Shortfall in area coverage was reported in Rice (1.648 mha), Coarse Cereals (3.78mha) and Pulses (0.37mha). Kharif sown areas of Sugarcane, Oilseedsand Cotton (11.73 mha) were more than normal kharif coverage. Details of sowing coverage are at Annexure-C. Monsoon and Crop Sowing Situation during Rabi Many parts of southern India receive considerable rain from the Northeast monsoon. Tamilnadu in particular, typically gets nearly half its annual rain during the North monsoon. Though the principal rainy season for interior Karnataka, Kerala and Lakshadweep is the Southwest Monsoon season, rainfall continues till December in these regions. Parts of West Bengal, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and North-East India also receive minor precipitation from the northeast monsoon. As per India Meteorological Department (IMD), North East Monsoon rainfall for the country as a whole during the period from 1st October, 2012 to 31 st December, 2012was - 21% of the Long Period Average (LPA) (Annexure-D)and from 1st January, to 28th February, was 26% of the Long Period Average (LPA)(Annexure-E). Rainfall during October, 2012, November, 2012, December, 2012, January and February ( to ) recorded a variation of -28%, +4%,-31%, -38% and +76% respectively over LPA. Total storage in 84 major reservoirs monitored by Central Water Commission (CWC) as on is 57.3 Billion Cubic Meter (BCM) which is about 37% of total storage capacity and 97% compared to corresponding period of previous year and 113 % of last 10 years average level. The States with highly deficient (>60% of normal) water storage levels as on are Tripura (-100%), (1 Reservoir) and Tamil Nadu (-80%) (6 Reservoirs); with deficient water storage levels (>20 %< 60%) are Andhra Pradesh (-43%), (5 Reservoirs), Kerala (-36%) (5 Reservoirs), Maharashtra (-36%), (12 Reservoirs).

3 Total Rabi area coverage is 63.67mha as against sown area of 62.80mha during normal years. Shortfall in area coverage was reported in Rice (0.76mha), Coarse Cereals (0.12 mha) and Oilseeds (0.34mha). Details of sowing coverage are at Annexure-F. Estimate of Food Grain Productions ( ) Owing to rainfall deficit conditions during the year , production of food grains in the country is expected to be million tonnes (MT) * which is about 9.18 MT less as compared to production of food grains during the year Drought affected States during Kharif 2012 STATE (Total number of districts in the State) No. of districts/taluks declared drought affected Andhra Pradesh (23) 234 mandals in 9 districts Gujarat (26) Karnataka (30) Kerala (14) Maharashtra (35) Rajasthan (33) 132 taluks in 17 districts 142 taluks in 26 districts 4 districts 125 taluks in 16 districts 12 districts Drought assistance to affected States during Kharif-2012 Government of India has approved Rs.778 crores to Maharashtra, Rs crores to Karnataka, Rs crores to Gujarat and Rs crores to Kerala as financial assistance for drought relief operations from National Disaster Response Fund (NDRF).

4 Government of India has also approved Rs crore from Special Component of National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP) for repair of damaged drinking water supply works for Karnataka. Drought affected States during Rabi During Rabi , Governments of Maharashtra and Kerala declared drought in the face of deficient rainfall during North East Monsoon. Government of Maharashtra declared 3905 villages as scarcity affected and Government of Kerala declared 14 districts as drought affected. Drought assistance to affected States during Rabi Government of India has approved an amount of Rs crores as financial assistance to the State of Maharashtra to tackle the severity of drought from NDRF. Government of Kerala declared 14 districts as drought affected. An Inter- Ministerial Central Team has visited the State. In view of the delayed South-West Monsoon in 2012, the Central Government constituted an Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoM) to review the situation and take quick and timely decisions on policy issues as well as on other issues for effective management of drought and related issues. Important decisions taken to address drought/drought- like situations were: Preparation of Contingency Plans for 400 districts for helping State Governments to implement location specific interventions to sustain agricultural production in rainfall deficit situation. Channelising funds available under various flagship schemes for drought relief activities. Release of interim assistance under calamity component of National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP) and Integrated Watershed Management Programme (IWMP).

5 Allocation of additional power from central pool to states. Up-scaling the central sector scheme on feed & fodder, waiver of import duty on oil cakes and enhancing subsidy on feed & fodder. Additional allocation under Accelerated Fodder Development Programme (AFDP). Additional wage employment upto 50 days per household beyond 100 days for drought affected areas under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) was also provided. ***
