Master Plan For Maha

The State Government today said it enhanced budgetary provision for Water Resources Department as it accorded top priority to development of irrigation facilities for the farmers and bettering the utilization of water resources.

The budgetary allocation for Department of Water Resources has been enhanced to Rs 10,196 crore for 2018-19 fiscal from the Rs 4024 crore in 2013-14, Water Resources Minister Niranjan Pujari said at a Media Meet after the review of his department’s performance by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at the end of the fourth year of his Government’s fourth term.

Mr.Purjari said, during 2014 the State Government had targetted to create additional irrigation potential of 10 lakh hectares over a period of five years.Odisha Government today said it has plans to construct at least seven barrages in the downstream of the River Mahanadi.

Pradeep Jena, Principal Secretary Water Resources said besides, 22 other projects would also be constructed on the tributaries and distributaries of the Mahanadi.

"The State Government has been working on a roadmap and a master plan to put a check on water of the Mahanadi that is getting drained into the sea by constructing barrages and anicuts downstream," Mr.Jena said.

Mr.Jena said the proposed projects were aimed at meeting the drinking water, irrigation and other requirements of the people.

An estimated 52 per cent of Mahanadi water is flowing down to the Bay of Bengal, official sources said.

Mr.Jena's statement is significant in the wake of Odisha Government's opposition to the Government of Chhattisgarh constructing projects on the upstream of the River Mahanadi.

The dispute between the two neighboring states is now pending before an Inter State River Tribunal.

However, Principal Secretary, Water Resources did not divulge details about the proposed master plan of the Government.

Official sources said the seven major projects would include barrages and anicuts at Boudh, Sambalpur, Subarnapur and Munduli areas.
