The Tamil Nadu government has declared the Cauvery delta region as a Protected Special Agriculture Zone.

  • The protected zone includes eight districts namely Thanjavur (Rice Bowl of Tamil Nadu), Tiruvarur, Nagapattinam, Pudukottai, Cuddalore, Ariyalur, Karur and Tiruchirapalli.
  • Such a declaration will prevent non-agrarian projects in the region.
    • The Government has emphasised that central projects on hydrocarbon exploration in the delta region cannot be implemented without No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the State government.
  • The Cauvery delta region is an important agricultural region in Tamil Nadu.
    • It has been seen that in the last four decades, Tamil Nadu’s food dependence on the delta has fallen from 65% to 40%. Hydrocarbon wells are one of the major reasons behind the same.
