Can you please let me know if its legal to have a borewell nearby a riverbed (less than 100 meters ).
I have a riverbed adjacent to my farm in Maharashtra and some water will be allowed in river from the dam which was used for irrigation purpose by farmers till now.
But due to recent deficient rains, farmers are not allowed to pump the water and EB cut the electricity supply in entire area to ensure no one uses electric motors to pump water.
I want to check if I can dig a borewell in shallow area of land very near to riverbed legally .
If I am able to dig a borewell, what are the economical options I have to pump water without electric supply .
I am tracking a thread on solar operated water pumps but as of now I wont be able spend 5+ lacks for such system.
If I have a diesel operated water pump, will it be portable enough to draw water overnight without much noise and dismantle quickly early in the morning (For land of 10 to 15 acres)?
