Three examples of water distribution methods prevailing in India are described. These are the Shejpali, Warabandhi and Vara Varam. In addition, the importance of rotational water supply system (RWS) is discussed. Its main objective is to distribute the water with equity to maximize the production with efficient use of water. The requirements and limitations of public distribution system are given. Details of the case study of Uben Irrigation Project in relation to canal water distribution by RWS are provided. This project is a World Bank-aided project situated in Junagadh District, Gujarat. Favourable factors for the successful implementation of RWS in Uben Project are discussed. Appendices provide RWS time allocation schedule and irrigation scheduling based on soil, crop and climate approach for Uben Irrigation Project.
