Dr. Devarajareddy NJ  says presently we are facing acute water shortage in the bore wells and  because of ground  water depletion, our farmers are drilling the bore wells deeper and deeper. In some places they have gone up to 2000 feet and have not got a single drop of water. The water shortage is not only in dry lands but also in  Malnad and  Coastal areas. So rain fall is not the criteria for bore well water.  He says based on his experience, they started point recharge of bore wells  in scientific way. The technology seems simple , based on land condition,  rain water flow, bore well condition. The work has to be done in scientific way, echo friendly and cost effective techniques.
