Canal cleaning/desiliting is carried out on following principles:

·         The allocated budget is distributed in five irrigation regions against the earmarked allocation the Chief Engineers prepare program of works for desiliting and get it executed within the financial premises.

·         Preferably the work of desiliting is assigned to mechanical division for execution by the Govt. machinery. However relaxation exits for execution by contractors, subject to non-availability of Govt. machinery.

·         Internationally mostly silt free water is used for irrigation purpose, which do not need silt clearance, where as in Pakistan flow from Indus has in system is utilized which is heavily silted. No, international standard for canal cleaning exists as it depends to real time cases as per site condition.
