18 Diversion based Irrigation (DBI) National level programme promoting low cost irrgation technologies

19 Salient features of DBI Trusts investment has been about Rs. 40 crores A typical DBI scheme will have an investment of Rs 10,000 to Rs 20,000 against investment of about Rs 60,000 for any minor irrigation scheme. Our estimate and experience from gravity flow irrigation suggest that an investment of Rs 15 crores will have potential of additional income of Rs 18 crores in one year. DBI is meant for small and marginal farmers DBI is environment-friendly.
