Journal Title:Asian Journal of Advanced Basic Sciences
ABSTRACT: India is amongst the largest irrigator countries in the world today. There is however, increasing
concern about some of the irrigation potential created not brought into the functional use. System
performance monitoring evaluation and diagnostic analysis are keys to appreciate the improvement or
inefficiency in our irrigation projects. Therefore, exercise of performance evaluation of an irrigation system,
whether a minor irrigation system or a medium/major irrigation project, requires proper understanding of
the problems and potentials of that project. The potential utilization of Lift Irrigation Project Barbour Sahib
is less than the average of District Una and even that of State of Himachal Pradesh.
Keywords: Lift irrigation project, main stakeholders, cultivable command area and NPSHA.
