This study was conducted to analyze performance of Bhimsagar irrigation project (BIP) using comparative performance indicators. The entire canal distribution system was considered as single unit to evaluate various indicators. Comparative performance of the irrigation system was evaluated using agricultural performance, physical performance and financial performance indicators. Agricultural performance indicators were found significantly varied from year to year depending upon the cropping pattern and upto some extent on the availability of storage water in the dam. A significant variation was found in the values of agricultural and physical performance indicators during different years considered. Financial self-sufficiency was found to follow decreasing trend due to increased cost of operation and maintenance.

Keywords: Canal irrigation, Agricultural performance, Financial indicator, Area infrastructure ratio, Financial self-sufficiency.
