The Water Resources Department (formerly known as Irrigation Department) has a glorious history of Irrigation over the last 150 years. The state of Maharashtra came into existence in the year 1960 after bifurcation of old Bombay State into Maharashtra and Gujrat. In the year 1960, the Public Works Department was divided into the Irrigation Department and Building and Communication Department. Since 26 October 2004 Irrigation Department is known as Water Resources Department. The planning & development of irrigation facilities in the State is entrusted with the Water Resources Department (WRD) and Rural Development & Water Conservation Department (RD & WCD). WRD is entrusted with survey, planning & design, construction & management of major, medium and minor projects having Cultural Command Area (CCA) 250 ha. and more. Whereas survey, planning, construction & management etc. of minor projects below 250 ha. CCA is entrusted to RD&WCD. In addition to this, planning, construction & management of Kolhapur type weir, lift irrigation, diversion weir, percolation tanks and village tanks and minor irrigation tanks below 100 ha. CCA is also with a local body at the district level called Zilla Parishad under the Rural Development Department.
In order to accelerate the completion of irrigation projects in Maharashtra State, the Government has established five Irrigation Development Corporations in the state. Viz MKVDC, Vidarbha Irrigation Development Corporation, Tapi Irrigation Development Corporation, Godavari Irrigation Development Corporation, Marathwada Irrigation Development Corporation, Konkan Irrigation Development Corporation. All the Corporations are headed by the officers of the rank of Secretary to Govt. and designated as Executive Directors. These corporations were allowed to raise funds through an open market in the initial period. Now a centralized procedure is followed for funding the construction activities of the corporations through Maharashtra Irrigation Finance Corporation (MIFC). The projects not covered by corporation jurisdiction are rested with the Water Resources Department. Now, one of the key institutional reform initiatives of the state is reconstructing of the existing Irrigation Development Corporations into River Basin Agencies with a view to strengthening the state's capacity in multi-sector planning and management of water resources at the river basin level.
