TALL ORDER: STATE ASKS NCA TO RESCHEDULE SSP WORK
By Our Correspondent
 
Gandhinagar, Dec. 5
The state government has filed a note of dissent and will ask the Review Committee of Narmada Control Authority to reschedule the dates for reaching specific dam height, said minister for Narmada and major irrigation works, Jaynarayan Vyas here on Tuesday. The RCNCA is to meet in New Delhi on December 9.

While the NCA has recommended 100-m dam height by 2002, the state government has appealed that the construction up to that height be completed by June 2001. The note submitted by the state government further requests that the height of the dam be increased by 10 m every year after 2001.

The state government is pushing for construction of the dam up to 110 m by June 2002, 121 m by June 2003 and 138 m by June 2005. The NCA has recommended dam height of 100 m by June 2002, 103 m by June 2003, 120 m by June 2004 and full height of 138 m by 2005.

Mr Vyas said, “We need more time in the last phase as the maximum area will be submerged towards the end and that will mean maximum rehabilitation.” “Moreover, we will need to cast the gates for the dam and the final touches will require more preparation time,” he added.

Mr Vyas said the 90-m height, the work on which is on at present, will be over by December. In addition to this, he said the state government plans to draw 1,000 cusec water by March 15.

Ahmedabad and Vadodara will continue to get water while about 10 crore litres will be diverted to Bhavnagar and seven crore litres to Amreli. Gandhinagar is expected to get water by 2002, Mr Jaynarayan Vyas said.
