Expert Answer:

Hello Aneeshakir,

Electricity has had major impact on the farmers in Palampur in a variety of ways. These are:

  • It transformed the irrigation system in the village. Larger areas could be irrigated in lesser time with the help of tube wells and pump sets, which ran on electricity.
  • A variety of crops could be grown all round the year because of the improved irrigation system.
  • The farmers don’t have to depend on monsoon/rains (uncertain and erratic) to grow their crops.
  • Most houses started to have electric connections.
  • It has also helped in running various small scale industries.
