Selection of Blocks: (Rule for Selection)

For the first phase (2008 to 2011): ‘Tank irrigation to total irrigation of the block should be greater than 40% and the SC & ST Population to total population of the district is > 25%.
For Phase II (2009 to 2012): ‘Tank irrigation to total irrigation being greater than 15% and less than 40% and the SC & ST Population being greater than 25%.
In Phase III (2010 to 2013): tanks left over and not covered from the selected tank list in the Phase I and II would be taken up.

Selection of Tanks:

The state has 3646 numbers of M.I. Tanks, out of which the tanks those require renovation and rehabilitation under this project was arrived at using well thought out identification criteria and agreed by state Government which are given here under;

Tanks where the gap between designed and the actual ayacut is more than 20%,
Tanks where there has been no major renovation work in the last five years.
Completely derelict tanks, where project investment will not be productive

Based on these three identification criteria 1572 numbers of tanks were selected out of the total M.I. tanks. Out of the identified 1572 tanks the project envisages to rehabilitate about 900 tanks with command area of 1,20,000 ha. during five years of the project period using following second set of selection criteria.

Tank level selection criteria:

The second set of criteria relate to selection of individual tanks to be rehabilitated within the identified blocks. This would be through a well defined selection process that would be based on,

Hydrological assessment to determine the hydrological viability of rehabilitating the tank system with 75% dependability.
Community willingness to participate in the rehabilitation by
Contributing 10% of the cost of rehabilitation (5% upfront in cash)
To undertake operation, maintenance and management.
To undertake responsibility for collection of water charges and management of the fund for undertaking satisfactory maintenance work.

Technical Parameters for selection

No revision of hydraulic standard in revival/restoration estimate.
Projects having designed ayacut more than 200 ha with lost ayacut of less than 20% of designed ayacut have been deleted.
Tanks should be selected where there is no overlapping of ayacut with other irrigation projects.
Tanks should not be selected where heavy siltation occurred.
Tanks should not be selected where major land acquisition is required.


The Government of Odisha in partnership with Government of India has initiated Odisha Community Tank Management Project (OCTMP) to repair and rehabilitate approximately 900 minor irrigation tanks having a command area of 40 ha to 2000 Ha and covering 1.20 lakh ha across the state of Odisha with funding from World Bank. more
