Panel to take a fresh look at all proposed river links

  1. Why a fresh look? To evaluate their feasibility, particularly in maintaining a balance between environment and development.
  2. Intra-basin transfer of waters is also very important. The rainfall distribution in the country, even within a State, was uneven.
  3. Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Rajasthan are some of the “tail end” states.
  4. The National Water Development Agency proposal was to link major river systems where surpluses from the Godavari & Mahanadi were intended to be transferred to deficit areas in the south.
