c.Deepen the lakes

d.Allow people to take soil newly deposited by the streams , thus dredging without any expenses for the government/panchayat

g.Will remove limits/restrictions on putting up drip irrigation facilities

h.will set up research stations and encourage private research stations for research on refining technology to make artificial rain with a view to bring down the cost

i.Will set up artificial rain making facilities in all the districts

j.Will encourage studies on locating pure water along the sea coast, as it is believed that at a certain depth, pure water exists along the coast

k.Will set up research institutes on evolving sea salt resistant crops and take sea water into the land for irrigating salt resistant crops

l.Will set up research institutes to study the quantum of water prevented by trees from recharging the ground water, to understand how many more trees are to be planted or whether we have more trees than required

m.Set up desalination plants along the sea coast
