Expert Answer:

It is a water harvesting system. It benefits the locals of the region. It gives people control over their water resources. Hence mismanagement and over-exploitation of water is reduced. 

Rajasthan is characterized by low and erratic rainfall, high evaporation rate, and low ground

water potential. In such places, khadin system is especially important. It helps in better storage and management of rainwater.
