Irrigation systems must have to be evaluated by acceptable indicators for expected outputs. Due to inappropriate, inadequate and wrong management of irrigation systems, farmers cannot obtain desirable outputs. In this study, four comparative indicators which are developed by International Water Management Institute (IWMI) were applied on Right main canal of West Banas irrigation project, Sirohi region in Rajasthan (India) to evaluate system performance. As a result of the study, based on the 2013-2018 years output per unit land cropped, output per unit command area, output per unit irrigation supply and output per unit water consumed were observed as 35302.78 Rs/ha, 9828.26 Rs/ha, 7.20 Rs/m3, 12.53 Rs/m3.Average value of Relative water supply and Relative irrigation Supply of the system for Five years (2013-2018) were calculated as 0.76 and 0.54 respectively. Physical performance of Right Main Canal was also evaluated for five years (2013-2018).
