Terms of reference for preparation of detailed project report of inter basin water transfer proposals

The National Water Development Agency (NWDA) was set up in 1982 as an autonomous society under Ministry of Water Resources to give concrete shape to these proposals by carrying out the detailed studies, surveys and investigation work and to prepare feasibility reports of the links under the National Perspective Plan. The NWDA, after carrying out detailed studies, identified 30 links: 14 under Himalayan Component; and 16 under Peninsular Component for preparation of Feasibility Reports:- NWDA has completed the pre-feasibility reports for all the links and Feasibility study of 16 links. The Feasibility Reports for remaining links are at various stage of completion. The NWDA had taken up the discussions with the concerned State Governments for building the consensus for preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) of individual link proposals.
