VIJAYAWADA: The State government has decided to establish a state-level Water and Land Management Training Institute (WALMTI) in Kadapa and three regional centres in Visakhapatnam, Amaravati and Nellore to function like a centre of excellence in water and land management training. 

According to an order (MS 72) by the water resources department, the State has asked the Centre for a one-time grant under incentivisation for bridging the irrigation gap (ISBIG) or any other centrally-sponsored schemes. The institutes are envisaged essentially to strengthen participatory irrigation management. 

The institutes will impart training to in-service engineers, provide capacity building services to the various wings of the irrigation and command area development authority and other wings. As there is no training institute which meets the requirement of water and land management, especially for water resources department, the State government has decided to set up four institutes — one State-level and three regional centres.
