To impart training about water efficient agricultural practices, a regional centre of Kota’s irrigation management institute will come up in Rajasthan's Bikaner district.

A proposal in this regard has been approved by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, an official spokesperson said today.

To be established with an investment of Rs 24 crore, the centre, through its 11 departments, will provide information about water management activities in agriculture, he said.

The new centre will contribute to the work already being carried out in the state by various national and international organisations in the field of irrigation management, he said.
