Heggadadevanakote

 

Demographics
As of 2001 India census,[1] Heggadadevanakote had a population of 12,043. Males constitute 51% of the population and females 49%. Heggadadevanakote has an average literacy rate of 66%, higher than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy is 72%, and female literacy is 60%. In Heggadadevanakote, 12% of the population is under 6 years of age.

Agriculture
H D Kote has four reservoirs viz., the Kabini, Nugu, Hebbala and Taraka reservoirs. Ironically however, the agriculture in this taluk is rain-fed mainly because the government has failed to harness the capacity of the four reservoirs. Also, barring the Kabini reservoir, the other three reservoirs are always dry. As a result, farmers who could otherwise raise three crops are able to hardly raise one and are perennially in debt. This is also one of the main reason for the economic backwardness of the taluk and distress migration to cities is common.

Taraka Lift Irrigation Project

The Taraka Lift Irrigation Project was envisaged with a view to alleviating the miseries of the farmers of this taluk. This project entails pumping water six kilometers from the Kabini reservoir into the Taraka reservoir which was completed in 1983. The Cauvery Neeravari Nigam Limited is in charge of this project and claims that 80% of the project is complete. The lift irrigation project is expected to be completed by January 2007.

The Taraka reservoir was in the news in Oct 2006 as one of the crest gates of the reservoirs breached leading to a major flooding of the villages downstream. This resulted in a major loss of animal life, agricultural produce and property though no human lives were lost.
