Irrigated agriculture is the major determinant of economic growth potential as it accounts for 20 % of the GDP and caters for over 50 % of the province's work force. Over 50% of agricultural output in Punjab comes from farmlands irrigated by one of the largest contiguous irrigation systems in the world. The colossal irrigation conveyance network is serving 21.71 million acres (8.79 million hectare) cultivable command area with cropping intensities between 120-150%.

            Water is a critical resource for sustainable economic development of Pakistan and in this respective irrigated agriculture is of great importance in the socio-economic life of the country. Punjab Irrigation Department has a long term vision for Irrigation Sector to provide adequate, equitable and reliable irrigation supplies to the cultivable lands of Punjab aiming at enhanced agricultural productivity with focus on  broad based institutional reforms.



            Punjab Irrigation Department transformed the arid plains of Punjab into the granary of the Indian Subcontinent, bringing prosperity to the inhabitants to its hard-working farmers.  Over a century old crumbling infrastructure is stretched to the limit to provide reliable and equitable water supplies of the ever increasing demands of the farm and non-farm sectors. We shall strive to restore the prestige and glory of the Punjab Irrigation Department by rehabilitating the infrastructure, formulating and implementing comprehensive legislation on water resources, investing in development of our Human Resources and most importantly root out favoritism and nepotism in the department.
