Water resources projects are planned, funded, executed, and maintained by the State Governments themselves as per their own resources and priorities. Role of Government of India is limited to providing technical support and, in some cases, partial financial assistance under the existing schemes being implemented by the Ministry of Jal Shakti. However, for the major and medium irrigation projects on inter-state river systems, techno-economic viability is to be appraised by Central Water Commission (CWC) under Ministry of Jal Shakti.
