Federations & CBOs 

                    Surface water management principles are applied in canal irrigated areas and Water Users Organizations (WUOs) will be organized to manage the specific canal networks of a larger canal irrigation system. At the village level Producer Groups i.e. Multi Task Groups (MTGs) would be formed. There are many examples of successful WUOs being formed within Rajasthan through the on-going World Bank assisted project and the best practices from this project will be used. The WUOs essentially take over the maintenance and water distribution system of the nascent networks under their area of operation of a larger irrigation system and, with training and capacity building can be assisted in better canal maintenance systems and a rationalized system of on farm water use.
