Funds for Inter-Linking of River

Posted On: 10 FEB 2022 6:34PM by PIB Delhi

The National Perspective Plan (NPP) was prepared by the then Ministry of Irrigation (now Ministry of Jal Shakti) in August 1980 for water resources development through inter basin transfer of water, for transferring water from water surplus basins to water-deficit basins. Under the NPP, the National Water Development Agency (NWDA) has identified 30 links (16 under Peninsular Component & 14 under Himalayan Component) for preparation of Feasibility Reports. Details and status of the proposals for inter - linking of rivers under the Inter Linking of Rivers (ILR) Programme is furnished at Annexure.

The issue of sanction of funds for the ILR projects under NPP arises at the time / stage of their implementation.

However, the Ken – Betwa project is the first Inter-linking project under NPP, which is ready for implementation. The project has been approved by the Government of  India   on   8.12.2021  for

Implementation with an estimated cost of Rs. 44605 Cr at year 2020-21 price level and central support of Rs.39317 Cr, through a Special Purpose Vehicle.

The Government is pursuing the interlinking of rivers (ILR) Programme in a consultative manner and has accorded it top priority. The implementation of the ILR projects depend on consensus among the concerned States. The interlinking of rivers programme is being pursued based on the principle of consensus and agreement among the concerned States.

 Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) of Damanganga-Pinjal link and Par-Tapi-Narmada link have been completed and circulated to the States of Gujarat and Maharashtra. The DPRs of Godavari -Cauvery link project {consisting of three links (Inchampalli) – Krishna (Nagarjunasagar), Krishna (Nagarjunasagar) – Pennar (Somasila), Pennar (Somasila)-Cauvery (Grand Anicut) link projects} have also been completed and circulated to the concerned States/Union Territory (UT), for building consensus and agreement on water sharing between party states.

This Information was given by the Minister of State for Jal Shakti, Shri Bishweswar Tudu in a written  reply in Lok Sabha today.
