A farmer at village Khunimajra, some 25km form Chandigarh, showing a plan drafted for digging a deep tubewell in his field. The ground water in this village is more that 600ft deep. Farmers in punjab are facing problems of depleting levels of underground water levels that in some places is as deep as 700ft. They complain that the state government does not supply enough electricity to use the pumps. They only receive 3-5hr of electricity per day and have to use diesel generators to pump the water for their fields.
