In addition, Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY) also consists of two components being implemented by the ministries other than Jal Shakti Ministry. Per Drop More Crop (PDMC) component is being implemented by Department of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, while Watershed Development Component (WDC) is being implemented by Department of Land Resources, the further said in the parliament.

Water resources projects are planned, funded, executed, and maintained by the state governments as per their own resources and priorities.

The state governments are mandated to address the monitoring and redressal mechanisms to ensure maintenance and quality control of irrigation projects being implemented by them. Further, Central Water Commission as well as a dedicated Project Management Unit (PMU) under the Jal Shakti has also been mandated to regularly monitor the projects receiving central assistance from the ministry. Physical and financial progress of these projects is monitored through a dedicated dashboard, backed with a Management Information System being maintained by Ministry of Jal Shakti.
