The 'Apna Talab Abhiyaan' programme promotes the building of private talabs on peoples' lands to help improve groundwater recharge in Bundelkhand.

Charkhari, a princely state of India in the colonial period was once a beautiful settlement founded by Saurabh Singh Bundela, a Rajput King. Acceded to India post-Independence, the town is now located in Mahoba, Uttar Pradesh. The place was home to intricate water management systems in the past. According to the settlement records for the Bundelkhand region, the region had numerous talabs-about 962 during the Chandela period-of which only 421 remain today. These old talabs (water bodies) showcase the skill of the builders of this period.
