Drought Relief Measures Undertaken in Marathwada Region of Maharashtra State
The Marathwada region of Maharashtra faced a severe drought, disrupting normal life of the people. Government data shows that against the normal rainfall of 683 mm, Marathwada received 535 mm rainfall last year; recording a rainfall deficit of 22 per cent. Rainfall was reduced by 30-50 per cent in 40 of the 76 talukas. In response to this difficult situation, Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care along with Marathwada Gramin Vikas Sanstha worked towards the de-silting, deepening, repair and reconstruction of two check dams in the region. This will increase the water supply by 43 lakh litres, benefitting more than 5,000 residents and hundreds of cattle in the villages of Bhokargaon and Zolegaon and will help to cope with any future drought situation.
