The paper would also seek the contribution of PIM modernization intervention in reducing the poverty, equity in delivery of water service and sustainability of FOs. The paper will focus on the
current PIM concepts, reform, and its process. The paper will address the issues of rehabilitation works, contract management. At present at least 180 irrigation channels have been transferred to FOs for management and operation followed by assessment and collection of water service charges.
