The scheme consists of commercially exploiting the fallow land in these six districts through horticulture, fishery and animal husbandry. Those engaging in these activities would also get the benefits of other existing government benefits applicable to such activities. These would lead to additional generation of income, which would be of great help to farmers in dry regions.
Matir Srishti envisages making 50,000 acres of fallow land commercially useful and through it, bringing benefits to about 2.5 lakh people. The lead administrator of the scheme would be the Water Resources Investigation & Development Department.
