JALAYAGNAM
(IRRIGATION PROJECTS PROGRAMME IN A.P)

Andhra Pradesh encompasses abundant water resources and Perennial Rivers flowing in the state and is appropriately called as River State. About 34 major state and minor rivers flow through the State. Of these 5 rivers namely Godavari, Krishna, Pennar, Vamshadhara and Nagavali, are important. All these rivers annually contribute about 2,746 Tmcft of surface water at 75 percent dependability. The ultimate surface irrigation potential in AP is estimated as 88 lakh Hectares. However only 55 lakh hectares has been created so far under all the sources. The Govt. of AP under the dynamic leadership of Dr.Y.S.Rajashekara Reddy, Hon'ble Chief Minister has given paramount importance to irrigation, to convert the under developed areas into irrigated cultivable areas. In this direction, for harnessing the river waters of the state “JALAYAGNAM” are initiated to reap early benefits.

About 59 major and medium projects have been taken u with an estimated cost of Rs. 65,000 crores to create new irrigation potential of 26 lakh Hectares besides stabilizing 7.63 Lakh Hectares of existing command area (83.10 Lakh acres). In the interest of making public expenditure productive, transparent and result oriented, the Government of Andhra Pradesh have decided to take up all these projects with a novel procedure of constructing the projects under EPC( Engineering Procurement and Construction) turn key system followed in the entire globe. In this EPC system the agency awarded with the work has to take up the investigation, design and the construction on turn key basis and hand over the project to Government. Thus the Government is benefited by cost and time overrun. To achieve quality in construction and excellence, these projects, have been entrusted to contracting companies of international reputation having excellent track record, vast experience in civil engineering, sound financial turnover and timely competition. Quality of construction is assured through reputed independent third party agencies.

The aim of the government is to complete all the projects in a record time so as to provide sustainable irrigation, on equitable terms to all the regions of the State.

Minor Irrigation Government of AP increased its investment in minor Irrigation to reap quick benefits to the areas where there is no scope for large irrigation. Government enhanced the budget allocation for restoration for Minor Irrigation tanks from Rs 100 crores to Rs 250 crores and it is proposed to further increase to Rs 400 crores in the next year. About 200 Mandals having high rain fall and low Irrigation, which are suitable to bring into irrigation by constructing M.I. Tanks have been identified. These schemes are proposed for development through financial assistance of NABARD and BHARAT NIRMAN.

National Projects

  1. Indirasagar Project(Polavaram) which is interlinking Godavari and Krishna basins an also provides irrigation to 7.20 lakh acres
  2. Inchampally having inter state ramification
  3. Pranahita-Chevella Link project to benefit 12 lakh acres in 5 most backward districts in Telangana Region
  4. Dummugudem project can be taken up as NATIONAL PROJECTS with an estimates cost of Rs 30,000 crores. Efforts are being made to seek the assistance of Government of India under BHRAT NIRMAN program to complete these 4 projects.

ANDHRA PRADESH – Ushering Green Revolution

Forgoing factual matrix clearly shows that this government is true to its commitment and going forward towards its set goals. To achieve these goals, huge investment is required from Public and Private Entrepreneurs. Government at its commitment allocated Rs 6,500 crores during 2005-06 to irrigation under State plan which accounts for 40% of the total plan size of the state, and already spent Rs 4,000 crores during this year. The allocation will be doubled this year 2006-07.

Irrigation infrastructure is the permanent and trunk to spur the development of the state. The participation in the construction of irrigation projects really make a difference for the infrastructure building and scope for the establishment of allied/ancillary industries, leading to major contribution to the socio economic development of the state. Above all, these irrigation Projects create basic and essential needs of food, water and air to the all beings.

Please do read the above article and see the real injustice to Telangana

JAI TELANGANA !

Mr Girish not on the papers inspect at the ground level.Not even a single acre was irrigated since the intiation of Jalayagnam in Telangana. Dont stick to the political statements of the govt.They come with a PC sarkar type of magic figures which will be faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar reality.

Jalayagnam is nothing but danayagnam for the politicians and contractors.
