It was found that on average a total quantity of water flow in Nallamada command in a year was 43.84 TMC, in addition to the 6 TMC of water being used for all the Lift Irrigation Schemes above the gauging station for all the crops under Nallamada command in Krishna Western Delta. During socio- economic survey of beneficiary and non-beneficiary farmers in the five randomly selected villages under Nagulapadu Lift Irrigation Scheme, effort were made to analyse the socio- economic and gender impact of Lift Irrigation Scheme on the lives of deprived farmers. Farmers were responded that they were aware of the fact that they were assured of water supply for irrigation that helped in enhancing the crop yields. They were convinced that their income levels increased due to yield improvement. Women farmers were of the opinion that they had been leading better quality life after introduction of Lift Irrigation Scheme. They opined that with the increased income levels, they had much better opportunity to provide medical and education facilities for their children.
