It was observed that there is lack of coordination between irrigation staff and FOs to collect Abiana from the minors and distributories. Mostly the Abiana on FO channels is being assessed and collected by the Canal Assistant and Abdaars and even mostly the abina payment receipts are not being issued to the framers/land owners. The FO is not properly coordinating with the sub divisional irrigation staff.
