In the early 60's, under the Agriculture Department, a small branch comprising a few Engineers was created for the purpose of supervision and maintenance of Agricultural implements in the Government Agricultural Farms. In the late 60's, the aforesaid branch was converted as Directorate, namely, Agricultural Engineering Directorate under the control of Agriculture Department for implementation of the Minor Irrigation projects in the State. In the first lap of 80's, a minor irrigation branch was opened as a branch of the Agriculture Department and the Agricultural Engineering Directorate was placed under its control. Finally, on 8th February, 1995 a new Department in the name of Water Investigation & Development Department was created.
