It’s well known that the Green Revo­lu­tion in Punjab con­trib­uted to make In­dia self-suf­fi­cient in food­grain pro­duc­tion. With fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance from the World Bank and NABARD, plans for deep tube­wells were framed and im­ple­mented. Presently, in the Kandi belt, lo­cated in the Shiva­lik foothills, deep tube­wells are play­ing a ma­jor role to achieve the goal of “sec­ond green revo­lu­tion”. The Punjab gov­ern­ment should re­lease funds for the re­pair and main­te­nance of tube­wells usher in the “sec­ond green revo­lu­tion”. Ra­jat Ku­mar Mo­hin­dru, Ja­land­har
