A proposal for the monitoring of Farmers Organizations has been prepared by PIDA to convert them in category “A” from category “B”. As per proposal, the monitoring & evaluation staff of alternate Area Water Boards will be deputed to conduct the monitoring of FOs functioning. The concerned FO Coordinator, Field Inspectors of other Area Water Boards and the Manager M&E from PIDA Head Office will jointly perform the evaluation activities and prepare reports which will be used for further policy framing.
The monitoring teams will observe the technical, revenue and management aspects of FOs under participatory irrigation management model, according to Deputy General Manager (TM) Mr. Afzal Anjum Toor. The said proposal will be sent to Managing Director PIDA for approval.
