DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
Ramganga River originates from Pauri Garhwal and enters UP in Moradabad and flows through Rampur, Bareilly, Badaun, Shahjahanpur, Farrukhabad and falls in Ganga river in Hardoi.
River keeps on changing its course very frequently, causing heavy erosion and mass sand deposition on fertile lands along its banks.
Very often flash floods occur in the catchments of its older paths and water stagnates for 10-15 days causing heavy damage to standing crops.
- affected areas covered with dense shrubs like Moonj, Narkul, Sarpat , Sarkanda etc.
- No or less cultivation with very low productivity.
- about 56800 ha. land of 355 villages has become barren .
- shelter for anti-social elements.
- locally known as Katri.
A Pilot project to reclaim 750 ha. of problem area was implemented during 2008-09 & 2009-10 in Shahjahanpur & Bareilly.
In pilot phase 806 ha. land reclaimed with project cost of Rs 2.00 crore.
In subsequent years (2009-10 & 2010-11) about 10705 ha problem land reclaimed with budgetary provision of Rs 24.00 crore.
