Present investigation was carried out in the arid and semi arid district of Rajasthan state to analyze equity assessment for ground water in different water categories in Rajasthan state. For this, primary data were collected with the help of pre structures schedule in the study area. Total sample size was 230 farmers. The farmers were classified in different categories on the basis of water transaction nature. There was a reasonable degree of fairness in the distribution of water between the different forms of water and thereby, realized equal yield levels if different forms of water market and thereby, realized equal yield levels of different crops. Farm size effect in the regression equations was negative implying thereby the equal access to groundwater. Thus the vertical equity is being there for different water forms.

Key words: Equity, Groundwater Markets, Different form of water.
