The Sikta Irrigation Project is situated in Banke District of the Mid Western Development Region with a cultivable command area of 33766ha. It covers 34 village Development Committees and one Municipality of the District. The project area is enclosed by the East-west Highway (Mahendra Rajmarga) to the North, the national boundary to the south, Dang district in East and Mankhola to the west. The drainage area of the Rapti River lies in the Mid Western Region of Nepal between elevations of 140 to 4000m. Of all the streams and rivers in the District, the West Rapti River, is the only river with a significant perennial flow during the dry season and is therefore proposed as source for the irrigation system.
