Precision land leveling is to produce a best-fit uniform and plain soil surface that makes optimum use of soil and water resources for agricultural purpose. Precision land leveling is made with the help of laser technology. The personal study is to find out the impact of laser land leveling on the changes in output level and to determine the extent of water saving. The study is based on primary data collected from the farmers’ fields leveled with traditional methods and with laser leveling technology. Partial budget technique has been employed to determine benefit cost ratio. The perusal of crop yield data crop yield and total irrigation time required per season between laser levelled (LLL) and traditionally levelled (TLL) fields. Laser levelling in rice fields reduced irrigation time by 47–69 h/ha/season and improved yield by approximately 7 per cent compared with traditionally leveled fields. In wheat, irrigation time was reduced by 10–12 h/ha/season and yield increased by 7–9 per cent in laser levelled fields (J. P. Aryal et al., 2015).

Key words: Laser land leveling, precision leveling, water saving, Incremental Benefit Cost Ratio, IBCR
