'Sarovar project work progressing well'

By Our Special Correspondent

JAIPUR, NOV. 30. The main canal of the Sardar Sarovar Project is expected to touch Rajasthan border in the year 2003-2004. The inter-State project, involving Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan is estimated to irrigate 19.05-lakh hectares of land, including 75,000 hectares in the droughts prone Barmer and Jalore districts and provide drinking water to 131 villages in Rajasthan.

A team from the Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam, led by its managing director, Mr. C. K. Koshy, met the Rajasthan Chief Minister, Mr. Ashok Gehlot and senior officials of the State during the weekend. Apprising the Chief Minister of the progress of the project, Mr. Koshy said the height of the dam had reached 88 metres and the 250 MW canal head power house was completed while the work on the 1200 MW river bed power house was in full swing. The Narmada Main Canal was complete up to a distance of 264 km from the dam. The work on the stretch from 264 km to 357 km would be awarded in this month, he said.

Mr. Koshy told Mr. Gehlot that the resettlement and rehabilitation of the affected families were going on pari passu with the increase in the height of the dam as per the orders of the Supreme Court. The independent Grievance Redressal Authority headed by former Chief Justice, Mr. P. D. Desai had commenced work from February this year to monitor the progress of the resettlement programme.The Chief Minister hoped that the work on the project would progress in such a way that the drought-prone areas of Rajasthan received water at the earliest.
