A limited body of knowledge is readily available on ‘water rights’ and ‘water entitlements’ of the

poor and smallholders in South Punjab. Therefore primary and secondary data, including the

sketchy and disorganized information available with the irrigation department and respective

ministry, has been employed to assess the situation. Information regarding water entitlement,

availability, access, provision, monitoring and regulation has been analyzed. The problems of

warabandi (fixed rotation and turns for water), anomalies, irregularities and associated conflicts

and violence are studied with reference to the observations on ground. Besides farmers’

experiences and perceptions, official perspective has also been given a due space.
