Abstract: Tank irrigation is considered as most important irrigation source, particularly in the dry and saline zones of India. It plays the vital role in improving the yield or productivity in the agricultural sector. The present paper attempts to find the different characteristics of tank irrigation in the saline zones and draw lessons for improving the productivity of tank irrigation. Sixty five water bodies have been selected from five blocks of the district of South 24 Parganas to understand the influencing factors for the tank productivity in saline zones. The regression results show that large command area, proper management and less number of benefited families are responsible for higher tank productivity.
