The Scheme will help to address the  critical issue of ground water resources in a major part of the country. The main objective of the scheme is to improve ground water management in priority areas in the country and that too with the help of local community. The Atal Bhujal Yojna will be implemented in the areas of Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh as these states represent about 25% of the total number of over-exploited, critical and semi-critical blocks of ground water.
