Scope of the study The study is based on review of literature and earl ier empirical analysis in different watershed areas complemented by field study of six watershed develo pment programs in India. These programs covered different agroecological regions and are ma naged and funded by different agencies: Mysore. The administrative divisions of India are subnational administrative units of India; they compose a nested hierarchy of country subdivisions.. Indian states and territories frequently use different local titles for the same level of subdivision (e.g., the mandals of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana correspond to tehsils of Uttar Pradesh and other Hindi-speaking states but to talukas of Gujarat.
