KRMB Asks AP To Stop Rayalaseema Lift Irrigation Project

Hyderabad | 30th July 2020
The Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) has instructed the Andhra Pradesh government to stop works on the Rayalaseema lift irrigation scheme forthwith.

The board also found fault with the AP government for granting administrative sanctions for the construction of new projects on the Krishna river, and warned the government against going forward with the projects without taking permission from the Central Water Commission (CWC).

KRMB member Harikesh Meena sent written instructions to the Special Chief Secretary (Irrigation) of the AP government to these effects.

The Telangana government had lodged a complaint with the KRMB stating that the proposed Rayalaseema lift irrigation scheme to divert the Krishna waters from the Srisailam project was in violation of the AP Reorganisation Act.

Against this backdrop, the KRMB in its response clearly said that the AP government couldn't construct the project.

The board said that the AP government giving administrative sanction to the project was in violation of Section 84, Para 7 of the conditions enshrined in the AP Reorganisation Act.

The board also made it clear that for any new projects, a Detailed Project Report (DPR) needed to be submitted to the CWC and permission taken from the Apex Committee.

The actions taken by the AP government, which were in violation of this procedure, would be viewed as violations of the Act, the KRMB clarified.
