Evaluation of Feasibility of Interlinking of Rivers for Environmental Protection IJTSRD
Interlinking of Rivers aims to link India’s major river system by a network of reservoirs and canals so as to reduce persistent floods in some parts and water deficit in other parts of the country. The proposal is broadly categorized into three parts viz. the Northern Himalayan Rivers inter-link , the Southern Peninsular and an Intra-State Rivers linking componenst. The project is being studied by NWDA, under MWR. India receives about 4,000 through rainfall from June to mid- September. Moreover it is not uniform in space and time, results floods in one part and droughts in other. This geographical and time variance in availability of natural water versus the year round demand for irrigation, drinking and industrial water creates a demand-supply gap that has been worsening with rising population. The Proponents of the rivers inter-linking projects claim the answers to problem is to conserve the abundant monsoon water bounty, store it in reservoirs, and deliver this water through rivers inter-linking project – to areas and over times when water becomes scarce. In addition the project also offer potential benefits to transport infrastructure through navigation, and fish farming. The National perspective plan envisions about 170 million acre feet of water for beneficial uses in India, enabling irrigation over an additional area of 35 million hectares, generation of 40,000 MW hydro power, flood control and other benefits. The cost of the project is invoices 6.5 lack crores as on 2003. Opponents are concerned about knowledge gap on environmental, ecological, social displacement impacts and unseen risks associated with tinkering with nature. Others are also concerned that some projects create international impact and the rights of nations such as Bangladesh and Nepal must be respected and negotiated.
