Sardarsmand Dam is located in Rajasthan's Pali district. According to Babu Singh Rajpurohit, President of Kisan Sangharsh Samiti, in the catchment area illegal encroachments were made by non-right holders which has reduced the dam capacity by 60 per cent. The Samiti had moved court against the encroachers that had started sand mining in the catchment area. Farmers were not getting water to irrigate their fields. High court directed state government and water resources department to get the encroachment removed but to no avail. Farmers have once again filed contempt petition in the high court over non-compliance of its directives.
