6200 villages in state, 4490 in Vid, face scarcity

Uneven, irregular and scanty rainfall in some districts last season has led to scarcity (drought like situation) in 6201 villages in the state. Most of these villages, 4490 to be precise, are located in Vidarbha followed by Nashik division that has 1163 and Pune division that has 614.

The number of villages facing scarcity this year is more than last year. The water table is down by 1 to 1.5 metres on an average. In Nagpur district, the water table has gone down more than the average. In Vidarbha, the worst hit districts are Amravati and Gadchiroli with the affected number of villages 1985 and 1116 respectively.

Two three member central government teams toured the scarcity hit villages in Amravati and Nagpur divisions on Monday and Tuesday to verify the situation projected by the Maharashtra government for seeking relief funds from the Centre. Based on the teams report, union government is expected to make suitable allocations.

The team for Nagpur division was headed by S M Kolatkar, director of Cotton Development, Mumbai, D M Raipure, director of monitoring and organization from Central Water Commission, Nagpur, and Pramod Indulkar, deputy secretary and nodal officer for scarcity of Government of India. The three member team that assessed the situation in Amravati division consisted of Y S Parasher, zonal manager of Food Corporation of India, R J Datta Choudhary from ministry of drinking water and sanitation, and Sunita Dhawale, representative from rural development ministry, Government of India.

These villages were found to record less than 50% anewari or crop yield. The worst affected area is Amravati division with 2728 villages. These include 1985 villages in Amravati district and 747 villages in Buldhana district. In Nagpur division, the total affected villages are 1662. Of these 496 are in Nagpur district and 50 villages in Gondia. The worst hit is Gadchiroli where the number of scarcity hit villages is 1116.

In Nashik division, as many as 581 villages are in Nashik district while 431 are in Ahmednagar and 147 in Dhule. The other four affected villages fall in Nandurbar district. Pune division has 614 scarcity hit villages which include 274 in Satara and 340 in Sangli districts. Aurangabad division is least affected with just 34 villages in Latur district.

How is anewari calculated?

Anewari is a measure of crop yield. It is calculated using a crop cutting experiment in which a 10X10 metre plot is selected in the village. The crop from this area is cut and weighed. This is compared with standard yield of the crop in the area. If the yield is below 50%, the village is said to be scarcity hit. Other factors like rainfall quantity, soil quality etc are also considered.

The relief measures

* Farmers could be exempted from paying land revenue

* Loans from cooperative agencies could be rescheduled

* Relaxation in employment guarantee schemes. Farmers could be asked to do less work in extreme summer or winter. The food for work scheme could also be implemented

* Recovery of loans could be stayed

* Fodder is made available for animals. Either government gives funds for procuring fodder or supplies fodder directly

* Irrigation water in the reservoir for the village could be reserved for only drinking purposes for people and animals. If there is no irrigation water available, funds are allocated for making drinking water available

* Farmers could be exempted from payment of electricity bills and disconnection due to non-payment won't happen

Now, Darda wants Nagpur to be new auto hub



Rajya Sabha member and media baron Vijay Darda has made a strong plea to chief minister Prithviraj Chavan and Union heavy industries minister Praful Patel to initiate steps to develop Nagpur and its adjoining industrial estates as an automobile manufacturing hub.
In his letter to Chavan on April 16, Darda highlighted that Nagpur with its unutilized, world class industrial infrastructure available at Burtibori, Mihan-SEZ could be ideally transformed into an automobile manufacturing hub, provided the state government as well as the Union government extended tax and other special incentives to attract investment in that sector.
While acknowledging that Chavan had taken proactive steps in promoting Mihan-SEZ in recent times and instrumental in bringing IT giant Infosys here, he urged the chief minister to take a lead in developing the auto hub. In this regard Darda also held detailed discussion with Patel on the feasibility of the idea. Moreover, one mother unit in auto sector could give rise to 300 ancillary units providing thousands of jobs, he stressed.
"Vidarbha has remained backward because of the government's apathy in promoting industrialization by offering special incentive packages to investors. On the other hand overemphasis on developing Mumbai, Thane, Pune and Nasik belts has resulted in overcrowding there. Now, despite investors wanting to come to Maharashtra they cannot be accommodated in Mumbai-Pune belt. The only solution is to offer concessions in Vidarbha unmatched by other states Gujarat, Uttarakhand and Tamil Nadu and attract investors to the state," Darda said in the letter.
Citing several cases of big units of Tata, Bajaj and Maruti going away to other states, Darda said that Mahindra and Mahindra was looking for a new location outside the state to invest around Rs 3,000 crore after its earlier proposal for setting up plant at Chakan near Pune was dropped because of tax issues. Similarly Indo Rama Synthetics was also planning to shift to Tamil Nadu as Maharashtra did not have proper port facilities, Darda said.
In the letter to Patel, Darda has suggested that a one-day seminar on automobile industry be organized jointly with the state government and automobile associations to promote the concept of new automobile hub at Nagpur. But before that the Union government and state should work out an attractive incentive package to attract investors to Vidarbha, he said.
Praful Doshi, president of Vidarbha Industries Association (VIA), backed the idea saying that it can boost ancillary industries in a major way. Mahindra and Mahindra which set up the tractor plant in Nagpur over three decades ago, already has a large number of units working as its ancillaries. With a hub, it can make a major difference. Nagpur's central location will also provide a logistical advantage to the automobile manufacturers.

Everyone wants but no one take stringent actions. This Darda is also RajyaSabha member member and well known personality, and even Praful Patel also. But what they have done we know. Darda, I have heard most of the time taking initiatives for Aurangabad. Praful Patel, as an independent charge of Aviation ministry, he cud have changed the fate of MIHAN.

Not sure who Sule is, but one thing must be remembered here, absolute power corrupts the person/authority/system. Successive successful lobbying is a result of possession of absolute power. India is democracy, not a theocratic country, and the development funds should be disbursed accordingly.....

If this is person demanding the right to lobby for the development funds which results in diverting funds from one region/project to another, then there is a fundamental flaw in the disbursement process or the entire top level political system is corrupt.

The fundamentals of funds or FUND101 if you want to call, is FUND FOR <<<something, or for a cause>>>>, means it is already allocated for something.

Lobbying is done usually for extra cash, or for a new project, where the disbursing authority decides whether to provide the cash to such projects, funds MUST NOT directed leaving other regions/projects high and dry. This happens under theocratic/dictatorship rule.

This person could be one itself in the chain of corruption or supports such theocratic/dictatorship governance.

Nice!Surprised to see that Nagpur district is well ahead of Nashik district which is considered rich.But at the same time we can't neglect the fact that Nagpur district is not the only district in Vidarbha,& it is rich because of Nagpur city which is one of the biggest cities in India.But where the rest of the districts in vidarbha stands that would be interesting to know

Really is incredible to see the massive difference between Western Maharashtra and the rest of the state.

Re Marathwada being worse off than Vidharbha, its quite interesting how well the graphic correlates to the areas that were under the control of the Nizam. See Telangana thread for more of that "legacy".

Not an eye opener, it is just an illusion created with just one year statistic. See the historic statistic and you will know.

Nagpur has always been like that. You missed Raigad district in the list.

Mumbai
Pune
Thane
Raigad
Nagpur
Nashik

I am not able to find actual figures, but I remember it to be like this around 2004.

Mumbai ~70k
Thane
Raigad
Pune ~37k
Nagpur ~35k
Nashik much lower

If you see all these years data, the % gap between Nagpur and districts above it is ever increasing and with those below it is ever decreasing. If the same trend continues, in no time we will see Nagpur falling behind many other districts.

And apart from that, what about the statistic on developmental backlog? irrigarion backlog? infrastructure backlog? and these are all planned fund allocations.
"Unplanned expenditure is almost thrice to four times of that of planned expenditure. and is till date milked fully by western maharashtra. And it doesn't show up in any statistic." - Just see the news posted in #100.

If all that statistic is put here, all the temporarily affected notions will set back to normal.

This map nothing but shows how biased the development has been in "Sanyukta" Maharashtra. Net income of in just 5 districts is above state average!! rest all are below!!! 30 districts!! what the hell is that!

This doesn't mean anything! Same logic says, Aurangabad district has higher per capita income that all districts in Vidarbha except Nagpur district. Does it make any sense?
