Site visit compulsory for diversion of forest land

Hello,

I have dug a borewell 320feet deep. Slating pipe, 4 gauge was inserted. 4 months later we tried inserting a 2hp motor at 220 feet  which got stuck due to sand filling in the bore. We somehow removed the motor and tried inserting it back. But it has now gor stuck at 140 feet depth and cannot be removed as the slated pipe is broken at some point. What is the solution to resolve this issue? What are the steps to be taken?

Hi

Recently the submersible pump I was using in the borewell stopped working. I was not able to remove the pump due to boulders. So the pump was detached and left in the borewell. The total depth of the borewell is 500 feet with water source at 470 feet. The diameter of the borewell is almost 6 inches with casing till 200 feet.  Boulders are seen at 330 feet and current water level is 270 feet. The water source seems good as 1 inch yield has been reported. Yesterday I used a temporary submersible pump and was able to pump water for continous 45 minutes without any issues.
