MESSAGE FROM THE DEVELOPERS OF WEBSITE
We are proud to present website of our Department. This is one of the first website developed independently by any Department of the State. The website was launched in year 2004. This website has been developed inhouse with the resources available with department by technical officers of department. No financial assistance either from state or other agencies has been sought or taken for preparation of this site. However regarding some data or figures has been procured from other line departments like Central Ground Water Board, Punjab State Science and Technology, Punjab Remote Sensing Center, Ludhiana, Punjab Agriculture University Ludhiana, Department of Information Technology Punjab, National Informatics Center Chandigarh and comments and papers of experts in this field.
Department has taken leads in implementing almost all the new initiatives taken by the state Government. We are also first among the various departments for implementation of 'Right's to Information Act 2005 of Punjab Govt'. This had been possible only because of enormous support and motivation received from our superior officers, who have always been there to support us.
Conservation of natural resources has become a very complex task in view of over exploitation of these resources. Rapid industrialization have brought about over- concentration and congestion specially in larger urban agglomerations and decreasing land holdings have put pressure on thereby making task of management of land even more difficult. Punjab have limited area and impact of green revolution has no doubt increased food grain production and improved the economic position of people of Punjab but it has put intense pressure on our natural resources of soil and water, following of paddy-wheat pattern year after year has rendered our soil health very poor and drastic effect on ground water resources. The need of hour is to adopt a more hostile approach that would maintain the fragile balance between the resource utilization and environmental integrity in a sustained manner.
