Gujarat | Sardar Sarovar and its Canal Network

GUJARAT: Indian Engineering Marvel – Sardar Sarovar and its Canal Network And RIVER LINKING PROJECT IN GUJARAT

Guys
I created this tread to spread the word of an engineering marvel that has already made life prosperous of thousands of villagers in Gujarat.

The Narmada Dam Project, is a project involving the construction of a series of large hydroelectric dams on the Narmada River in India. Sardar Sarovar Project (SSP) is the largest multipurpose project involved in the construction. The multi-purpose project will irrigate more than 18,000 square kilometres - most of it in drought prone areas like - Kutch and Saurashtra.

Please post articles and pictures of the dam its canal network and areas brought under its cultivation.
AND ARTICLES RELATED TO RIVER LINKING IN GUJARAT

In all, expenditure of Rs. 329 crore has been planned.

Sujalam Sufalam Yojana-2

Daman ganga-Sabarmati-Chorwad link: Scheme of inter linking of rivers

Government of Gujarat has realized the utility of rivers` interlinking scheme. In this stage, work of Narmada will be completed and as a result a gargantuan increase will be witnessed in the capacity to fulfill the requirement of potable water and irrigation. On the one hand water of rivers flow in the ocean in rain and problem like flood also arise and on the other hand, people of state have to face the shortage of potable water. Even farmers and industrialists have also to face the problem of water.

Remedy of both these issues lies in interlinking rivers, resolved to bring all-round solution of water problem of a vast region upto Chorwad by linking Damanganga, Tapi, Sabarmati and other rivers and reservoirs falling in the way. By inter linking the rivers and vast reservoirs of South Gujarat and Central Gujarat, huge storage of water will be created, thirst of Gujarat will be quenched and green revolution will be boosted.

Sujalam Sufalam Yojana-3

KALPSAR YOJANA

Any talk about providing huge quantity of water to the thirsty land and thirsty Gujaratis will be proved like a boon of Kalpvruksha A multipurpose ambitions schemes for providing water has been named as Kalpvruksha. It means a scheme of water which fulfill all desires for water.

Water of total 12 rivers including four main rivers like Narmada, Mahi sagar, Dhadhar and Sabarmati will be checked by constructing a vast dam where water of these rivers will be stored. Besides irrigation and potable water, Kalpasar Yojana will provide other facilities like electricity and transport, railway and road and will provide significant contribution in the average prosperity of Gujarat-Saurashtra.

It is Certain that second green revolution will be seen in Gujarat in a short span of time due to the positive approach adopted to bring long term solution of Gujarats water and irrigation problem on scientific basis, when water problem of rural people will get solved rural life will be more happy, agriculturists and villages will become prosperous and Gujarat will lead the nation on all fronts.

Green signal to Sujalam Sufalam project

GANDHINAGAR: Four years after it was launched, the state government has got a "post-feasibility study" of the controversial Sujalam Sufalam project prepared to silence its critics. Prepared jointly by the Institute of Social and Economic Change (ISEC), Bangalore and Water Resources Engineering and Management Institute (WREMI), Vadodara, it comes even as a Planning Commission document on the 11th Five-Year Plan (2007-12) refuses to include it in the list of projects it has approved.

Submitted to the state water resources department in June this year, the two-volume report technically examines each area where the project is being implemented separately. It concludes that the project was needed in order to benefit 2.35 lakh hectare (ha), mainly of north Gujarat, in order to help recharge the area in which the Sujalam Sufalam canal passes through. Starting at Kadana dam, water will also be pumped into it from the Narmada main canal at four different points for this.

The report says 840 million cubic metres (MCM) of water will be available per year to the canal. Of this, 615 MCM will go into recharging the area surrounding it. And, once fully operational, water levels will rise by 0.25 metre per annum in districts where the unlined canal goes – Dahod, Panchmahals, Sabarkantha, Mehsana, Patan, Banaskantha and Surendranagar. This is important as "the water levels have depleted up to 150 to 180 metre from 30 metre during past 20 years."

Pointing towards the project's viability, the report says the area, which is its beneficiary, has been struggling with "recurring drought almost in every three years because of a very high coefficient of variation." Nine dams of the region were filled up only up to "30 per cent of their capacity in the last 10 years." Result: the reservoirs were reserved for drinking water, but no water was available for irrigation.

Believing that these problems will be solved, the report — ‘Technical, Social, Economic and Environmental Study of Sujalam Sufalam', authored by ISEC's K V Raju and WREMI's D T Shete – believes that the project will solve state's power crisis too as "out of the total electricity consumption of the state, 30 to 35 per cent is used to pump water from the tube-wells located in the area" and the government has to "abnormally high subsidy for agricultural purpose."

The Rs 6,237 crore Sujalam Sufalam project came under heavy criticism a couple of years ago when the public accounts committee (PAC) of Gujarat state Assembly sharply attacked it as being implemented without administrative approval. The PAC report, which was never made public, indicts the government for overspending Rs 500 crore on the project, forcing the government to appoint an official panel to examine the allegations, which again found PAC's findings correct.

Even as brushing aside such criticism, the report recommends lining up of the canal at some points in order to avoid damage to the fields during floods. It also recommends that water should be filled up in the 332-km long canal slowly and should be taken forward in phases instead of all together.

Prabhu joins hands with FICCI for river connectivity
New Delhi, Sept 03: Former Union Minister for Power Suresh Prabhu has been roped in by industry body FICCI for track-II diplomacy with Nepal on finding solution to flooding of rivers flowing from the Himalayan nation.

Prabhu, who chaired an expert body on linking of rivers during the previous NDA government, will work with FICCI for further studies on connectivity of rivers.

"He (Prabhu) has agreed to work on river linkages," FICCI Secretary General Amit Mitra said adding the former Power Minister would also work on back-channel discussions with Nepal on the issue of India-Nepal water treaty, particularly with regard to Kosi river.

The Kosi river has created havoc in north Bihar, which is suffering one of the worst floods leaving lakhs of people homeless.

After the Kosi river water crossed into the Ganga, situation improved giving a shot in the arm of those who had all along supported the idea of river linkages.

"We will also use the SAARC Chamber of Commerce for finding a solution to floods without getting into blame-game," Mitra said.

River inter-linking is still a dream

Source:http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?newsid=1182589

Quote:
River inter-linking is still a dream
Anil Anand


NEW DELHI: Despite the UPA government putting up a brave face on the execution of the multi-crore rivers inter-linking project, it remains a non-starter as barely five of the proposed 30 links in the Himalayan and peninsular regions are in different stages of planning. There is no mention about the remaining as yet.

The Rs560-thousand-crore project, to be completed in 15 years, is currently stuck among the squabbling states, as the Centre has almost no say in the matter with water being a state subject.

The Centre has been sending repeated reminders to the warring states to sign the MoUs on the interlinking projects proposed by them. Despite possessing 16 feasibility reports about the different links, the progress on the projects is negligible.

Out of the five links under consideration Parbati-Kalisindi-Chambal (Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh) is caught in the vortex of “bilateral discussion”.

Despite repeated reminders by water resources minister Saifuddin Soz, no headway has been made.

The minister sent his latest letter dated April 16, 2008 asking the chief ministers of the two states to “expedite the concurrence”. All that the states have responded was that a meeting between their officials is slated to take place at the earliest.

The detailed project report for the Ken-Betwa link between UP and Madhya Pradesh is in the pipeline for past three years.

Soz is still hopeful that it will be completed by the end of this year. Justifying the delay in completing the DPR, Soz said it involved the study of entire gamut of factors particularly relating to environment protection.

Some headway has been made in Par-Tapi-Narmada and Damanganga-Pinjal river links involving Gujarat and Maharashtra. After great persuasion by the Centre over the years, they have agreed to sign the MoU. The fifth link namely Godavari (Polavaram) - Krishna (Vijaywada) link involving Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and Chhattisgarh is under discussion.

What intrigues the Centre is the fact that the some of the states have been reluctant to proceed further despite having volunteered to send inter-linking proposals. Maharashtra tops the list with 15 proposals followed by Bihar (6), Jharkhand (3) and Gujarat and Orissa one each.

The river interlinking has been divided into two parts, Himalayan and Peninsular. There are 14 links in the first category and 16 in the latter. However, due to sensitivity and strategic importance of the Himalayan region, this area has still not been touched by the water resources ministry.

Kalam praises Gujarat’s river and lake interlinking achievements

Quote:
Ahmedabad, DeshGujarat, 13th of September, 2008

Former President of India, popularly known as Peoples president Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam today praised achievements of Gujarat’s river and lake linking projects while talking to the students of IIM Ahmedabad.

While discussing interlinking of rivers in India in his class he said “There should be a program for interlinking of water bodies at state level across the nation. Every state should interlink it’s all the water bodies. Once this goal is achieved, there can be a nationwide interlinking program.”

Student in response to this narrated examples of Gujarat’s Sardar Sarovar Project, Narmada’s successful interlinking with river Sabarmati and interlinking of different lakes in Ahmedabad.

“Very good” Kalam said for these achievements and said “There should be a research on good practices and such practices should be published for wider reach.”

3.362 km-long Panam high level canal - Lifeline of Panchmahal

Source: Modi dedicates 3.362 km-long Panam high level canal

Quote:
Godhra, Jan 25: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today dedicated the 3.362-km-long Panam high level canal in Panchmahal district to the state.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Modi said the Canal, being constructed under the Suzlam Sufalam scheme at a cost of Rs 130 crore, will provide irrigation water to 25,000 families of the 75 villages of Godhra, Sehera and Lunavada taluka.

He said the Canal is a rebuttal to the critics of Suzalam Sufalam scheme. The government was committed to the development of the state and was making efforts in all directions.

''Five years ago agricultural
income of the state was Rs 900 crore, and today it had surged to Rs 48,000 crore,'' the Chief Minister said.

Mr Modi said while the Central government had allocated only Rs 400 crore for drip irrigation, the Gujarat government had kept aside Rs 1,500 crore. The developed irrigation facilities will help farmer, especially their daughters save time, he said, adding the girls, who had to work in the fields will be now be able to attend schools.

The government has organised the main Republic day celebrations at Godhra, where the 2002 Sabarmati Express train carnage occurred and subsequent riots that claimed lives of more than 1,000 lives.
