Irrigated agriculture plays a vital and important role in economic development of many countries around the world. In this research, performance assessment of Water User Associations (WUAs) was undertaken over canal water management in irrigation command area. WUAs in canal irrigation network were characterised and evaluation of irrigation performance was evaluated using different performance indicators. The water delivery indicator in tail-end supply ratio was 0.67, area uniformity ratio was 0.79 and delivery timeliness ratio was 1 in Govindgarh WUA. Satisfactory performance was observed in Govindgarh WUA in the comparison of Bijori WUA and Bauchhar WUA. The carrying capacity ratio was 0.96, and poor structure ratio was 0.5 in Govindgarh WUA. This indicator was also satisfactory in Govindgarh WUA as compared to Bijori WUA and Bauchhar WUA. In financials, fee collection performance (0.75), personnel cost ratio (0.56) and manpower number ratio (0.009) in Govindgarh WUA make it satisfactory. Sustainability of irrigated area was 0.88 which was satisfactory in Bijori WUA. Area/infrastructure ratio was 139.27 in Govindgarh WUA.
