Abstract: "Limitations are described in the current system of allocation and distribution of canal water at watercourse level in Punjab irrigation systems. It is argued that the rigidity implicit in the warabandi system prevents farmers from managing irrigation water in an optimal way. Alternative water allocation systems should be developed because of larger water supplies, resulting from the use of pumped groundwater, and persistent inequity in water distribution going from head to tail reaches in distributary and watercourse command areas. It is proposed that a new set of rules for allocation and distribution should be flexible and take account of the water quality of pumped groundwater used for irrigation."
