In LIS water is lifted from lower level to higher level with the help of pumps and other equipments.

Construction of dams and canals helped tremendously to increase the irrigated area laying at lower level than the dam level, but scarcity of water remained the problem for higher level areas. So as to bring higher level area under irrigation L.I.S. are taken up.

Advantages of L.I.S.

  • L.I.S. made irrigation possible at higher level.
  • Land acquisition problem in L.I.S. is less.
  • Water losses are low.
