Abstract: There is a very old story about bringing Ganga on the earth by King Bhagiratha. Besides quenching the thirst of millions of people of India, the holy and sacred water of Ganga is also used for the purpose of irrigation in most of the parts of India. In the past, the kings were also adopting the water conservation schemes to store rain water for future requirements. Hirakud dam in Odisha and Bhakra dam in Punjab are the evident examples of that time. The construction of these dams was reasonably useful for the irrigation purposes and the people call them as temples of India. It was a continuous process to construct the large and medium dams at different rivers in different parts of India. As India is a country of farmers, there is an urgent need of water for irrigation. On the other hand India has good rain water in monsoon period. During this study, the main emphasis of irrigation depends upon the kind of crops and need of water for such crops. Also the management of rain water will meet the requirements of different crops in India. The capacity of upper Ganga is 10500 cusec which meets most of the irrigation requirements of North Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
