Abstract

To minimize and counter decline of groundwater levels and improve the availability of water for crop production, Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) interventions are widely adopted across India, often initiated or supported by, local communities, state and central governments to improve the availability of water for irrigation. While the literature on MAR in India is vast, the science of their construction is lacking. Furthermore, there is an absence of a structured approach to evaluate the performance and impact of MAR interventions. Often, performance and impacts of MAR have been commented upon together, without distinguishing the two.
