Resource wise reservoirs (>100 ha) constitute 66% of total FTL area though in terms of no. they form only about 3%. In other words, 97% of resources are tanks and ponds with FTL < 100 ha. and constitute about 34% of FTL area. Effective water spread area (EWSA) which makes the basis for all development planning is 2,00,322 ha. which is 37% of FTL are including rivers, canals and waterlogged areas. Resource wise EWSA has been calculated after factoring in certain resource specific characteristic   like seasonality, suitability for fish culture, extent of leased out area during past 5 years.
District wise distribution of different category of water bodies in terms of no. and area at FTL and EWSA is shown below:-
