Aparupa Poddar asks Supplementary Questions on over-exploitation of groundwater, and cloud harvesting
Madam, through you, I would like to ask the minister whether the government is taking measures for preventing over-exploitation of groundwater for irrigation, and what are the changes in the areas in irrigation during the past four years?
I would also like to ask the minister whether the government is thinking on cloud harvesting, because in India now rain in uncertain and for that farmers are facing problems. Has the government got any policy on cloud harvesting?
Thank you, Madam.
