A Detailed Feasibility Report (DFR) has been prepared for the Brahmani & Banas River Interlinking Project in Rajasthan.
“The report has recommended to construct a dam in Brahmani river in order to store the monsoon flows, to set up a diversion system to take water from Brahmani dam to Bisalpur dam in Tonk district, set up a pump house to lift water from Jawahar Sagar dam on Chambal river, set up a transmission system to bring water from Jawahar dam to diversion system and Brahmani dam and then to Bisalpur dam through a 54 km tunnel,” said capex.cmie.com
Prepared at a cost of Rs 47 million, the detailed feasibility report has now been sent to the public health engineering department (PHED) for assessment of its technical and financial viability.
The project was announced in July 2014. The proposal was to interlink the Chambal (Banas) and Brahmani rivers by digging a tunnel to ensure flow of excess rainwater to Bisalpur dam.
