The economic evaluation of Badrigad watershed in Tehri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand has been evaluated in a ‘pre ’and ‘post ’framework. This study used primary data of randomly selected 150 households and secondary data from different sources. Overall, the watershed development increased productivity and intensity of cropping in all seasons. Livestock population has increased considerably. The watershed development programme increased the number of technology users and household income in all categories of farmers (18.8 per cent). Majority of them had expressed "lack of subsidized rate input supply", as one of the major constraint followed by others. Frequent visits of the extension worker and expansion of agriculture infrastructure should be encouraged to help increase benefit from watershed development.
