Marwar - - All Things [Great And Small] -

Ra­jasthan has started work on its first river-in­ter­link­ing project. The aim of the project is to en­sure the flow of ex­cess rain­wa­ter in Cham­bal and Brah­mani rivers to Bisalpur Dam. This wa­ter will then be used to meet drink­ing wa­ter and ir­ri­ga­tion re­quire­ments of 19 towns and around 3,000 vil­lages in Jaipur, Ajmer, Tonk and Na­gaur dis­tricts. A de­tailed fea­si­bil­ity re­port of the project has been pre­pared at a cost of `4.73 crore. The re­port has been sent to the pub­lic health en­gi­neer­ing de­part­ment for as­sess­ment of its vi­a­bil­ity— both tech­ni­cal and fi­nan­cial.
