Irrigation water management is facing organization changes worldwide. Beginning in the 1980’s, there have been a large scale programs to turn over irrigation management from Government Agencies to organized Water User Associations in a number of countries such as Philippines, Indonesia, Columbia and Maxico. This study is aimed to assess the water productivity in wheat crop taken by govindgarh tank command area in Rewa district. In this command area eight miner and head reach highest discharge was obtained in Govindgarh minor (0.572 m3/s) and lowest discharge was in Amin and Hardisankar minor which is 0.246 m3/s. It decreases by 62.76%, 67.48% and 80.49% in tail reach. The water productivity of wheat crop in Govindgarh command area is ranging from 0.46 to 1.43 kg/m3 in head reach, 0.55 to 1.50 kg/m3 in middle reach and 0.54 to 2.39 kg/m3 in tail reach. In this command area tail reach water productivity of wheat crop is more in all three reaches.
