Abstract: Irrigation development in India is proceeding at a record rate and will continue for several decades. Experience, however, is showing that future directions must entail substantive emphasis on the institutional and the technical areas simultaneously in order to remedy certain deficiencies. The complexity and magnitude of the program are stressing the long established organizations and procedures. And many technical features now available need more widespread application. The World Bank is incorporating measures into the content of its loan agreements with the government to help address both areas more effectively.
