Monsoon failure: Govt declares 156 taluks drought-hit

  • The state government declared 156 taluks in Karnataka as drought-hit following the failure of Northeast Monsoon (October 1 to December 31-Rabi season).
  • The government had earlier declared 100 taluks as drought-hit due to below average rainfall during the Southwest Monsoon (June 1 to September 30-Kharif season).
  • There are 178 taluks in the state and 49 taluks were added recently.
  • Of the 156 taluks, 95 are severely hit and the remaining moderately hit by the drought. The total loss due to floods, landslides and failure of Southwest and Northeast Monsoon has been estimated at Rs 20,000 crore
  • The total deficiency during the Northeast Monsoon till date is 49%. The deficiency is most in North interior Karnataka (66%).
  • This region accounts for 90% of Rabi sowing. Inter-departmental teams, comprising agriculture, water resources, horticulture, revenue oicials among others, will visit the taluks for ground-level assessment
  • The new drought assessment parameters are very stringent. Central assistance is provided for taluks under the ‘severe’ category only and the state government has to prove severity in terms of three out of the four main impact indicators.
  • These include crop situation-related indices, remote sensing-based vegetation indices, soil moisturerelated indices and hydrological indices, he explained. In the state, the Rabi sowing has been done on 26.03 lakh hectares of land (81.89%) as against a target of 31.80 lakh hectares on December 21
