Pabusar pond singing the glory of MGNREGA, the period of greenery spread with happiness in public life
By adopting the activities related to water conservation on a large scale, the activities carried out on a large scale in the Jodhpur district have brought glory to the rural areas.
All this has been possible due to the Mahatma Gandhi NREGA scheme, which has emerged as a boon in western Rajasthan like other areas of the state and under this, the development and expansion of water structures in the villages by inculcating self-reliance in the matter of water. It is playing a cooperative role in helping people get rid of many problems.
Whether it is erratic rains or occasional heavy rains, the need to stop the run-off rainwater due to heterogeneous geographical conditions in these situations was felt for a long time. It was completed by MGNREGA and the situation has started changing.

And this had the effect that with the stagnation of rain water in rural areas, conditions were created for long-term use and traditional reservoirs were recognized as village water conservation centers.
Developed under Mahatma Gandhi NREGA scheme, one of these reservoirs is Pabusar pond of Kolu Pabuji Gram Panchayat under Dechu Panchayat Samiti of Jodhpur district.
