FOREWORD
Water is among the most precious gifts of nature to mankind. In its very ordinariness, water
is an extraordinary. Benign and life supporting in normal times, menacing during floods and
desperately sought in times of drought, the water of the river has been part of our daily life.
The development strategy of our state is focussed at sustainable agriculture growth and
development, power generation, food security, poverty alleviation, environmental, protection human
resource and infrastructural development, reducing regional imbalances, and conservation, of natural
resources. Thus the development of Agriculture/Irrigation sector has been given the highest priority
in the development process of the state.
Andhra Pradesh has a rich heritage of cultivation and irrigation dating back to several centuries.
The time-honoured practice of irrigation in the valleys of the rivers and streams was mainly by
means of surface tanks, canals and wells. The first large scale utilisation of water for to irrigation
started during first half of 19th century under British rule, with the construction of the two anicuts on
Godavari & Krishna under the able guidance of Sir Arthur Cotton. The role of eminent engineers
viz., Sir Moksha Gundem Visweswarayya, Dr. K.L.Rao among others has been immense in
sustaining and in extending excellencies in Irrigation sector.
Post Independence, period of 1955 to 1963 was significant for Andhra Pradesh as the then
Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, architect of Modern India, laid foundation stones for the
greatest multipurpose projects viz., Nagarjuna Sagar and Srisailam on river Krishna, which are
hailed as Modern Temples taken up to usher in the Green Revolution and build a new India without
foreign dependence for food grains.

The state of Andhra Pradesh having been severely affected by series of droughts and floods
has again made giant strides in Irrigation sector by taking up Jalayagnam, one of the most ambitious
programmes ever implemented in the country. The main focus of Jalayagnam programme is on
the backward, drought affected and under developed areas of the state. In total, 86 Irrigation Projects
(44 Major, 30 Medium, 4 Flood Banks and 8 Modernization projects) have been taken up so far to
develop 97.02 lakh Acres of new ayacut and stabilization of 22.53 lakh acres at a cost of Rs.
1,85,578 crores. Jalayagnam projects will also provide drinking water to a population of 2.11 crores
covering 6310 villages in 425 mandals utilizing 65.141 TMC of water. For early completion of the
projects under Jalayagnam, the state Government besides earmarking the bulk of its annual budget,
also sought financial assistance from the Government of India under National Projects and AIBP.
The department has last published its Annual Report in the year 2003 - 2004. In continuation
of the same and to showcase the overview of the activities of the department, this annual report is
being published as a handy tool for ready reference. Every effort is made to present the information
in a concise form useful for all the Administrators, Engineers and others concerned connected with
the Irrigation sector. The valuable suggestions if any for improvement from the esteemed readers
will go a long way for enhanced presentation in publishing the succeeding Annual Reports.

Irrigation Profile of
Andhra Pradesh
1. Introduction
A. Geography
The state of Andhra Pradesh has a total geographical area of 2,75,045 sq.km and
population about 84.67 millions (as per 2011 census). Andhra Pradesh is one of the largest
states in the Indian Union accounting for 8.4% of the total geographical area in the country.
Andhra Pradesh is a riverine state with 40 major, medium and minor rivers/streams.
Out of which five numbers of major interstate rivers, viz., Godavari, Krishna, Penna,
Vamsadhara, and Nagavali flow through the state. Besides these five interstate rivers north
of Godavari, flow through Orissa and Andhra Pradesh and four rivers south of Penna flow
throughTamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. Apart from the above, 28 medium and minor rivers
flow within Andhra Pradesh. The State has the second largest coastline of 972 km among all
the states of India. Andhra Pradesh lies between 12 41' and 22 North longitude and 77 and
84 40' East latitude and is boarded by Maharastra, Chattisgarh, Orissa in the North, the
Bay of Bengal in the East, Tamilnadu to the South and Karnataka in the West. Andhra Pradesh
is historically called as "Rice Bowl of India". More than 77% of its crop is rice. About 70% of
the population of Andhra Pradesh depend on agriculture. Andhra Pradesh produces about
178 lakh tones of rice each year. It is estimated that all the rivers of Andhra Pradesh together
supply annually 2769 TMC (thousand million cubic feet) of water to the state of Andhra Pradesh.
The break up of riverwise availability of water (1) the river Godavari 1480 TMC (2) the river
Krishna 811 TMC (3) the river Penna 98.6 TMC and (4) the river Vamsadhara 52.5 TMC and
the yield from other small rivers is 327 TMC . Water utilization so far is only 1985 TMC irrigating
61.67 lakh hectares as against cultivable area of 159.00 lakh hectares or 392.73 lakh acres.
Geographically, Andhra Pradesh is composed most of the Eastern half of the Deccan
plateau and the plains to the East of the Eastern ghats. The Northern part of the plateau is
Telangana region and the southern part is known as Rayalaseema. These two regions are
separated by the river Krishna. The Eastern ghats are discontinuous and individual sections
have local names. The Kadapa region formed by two arching brances of the Eastern ghats
is a mineral rich area. The coastal plains are formed by the rivers Godavari, Krishna, Penna

Annual Report - 2010-11

and Vamsadhara. The Eastern ghats are major dividing line in the state's geography. The
eastern ghats become more pronounced towards the South and extreme North of the coast.
The eastern ghats region is home to dense tropical forests, while the vegetation becomes
sparse as the ghats give way to the Deccan plateau, where shurb vegetation is more common.
Most of the coastal plains are put to intense agricultural use. The west and southwest parts
of Andhra Pradesh have semi-arid conditions. The state is divided in to 23 districts, which are
grouped in three regions, popularly known as Coastal Andhra region, Rayalaseema region
and Telangana region.
Coastal Andhra region: Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, East Godavari,
West Godavari, Krishna, Guntur, Prakasam and Potti Sree Ramulu Nellore districts.
Rayalaseema region: Kurnool, YSR Kadapa, Chithoor and Ananthapur districts.
Telangana region: Mahabubnagar, Ranga Reddy, Hyderabad, Medak, Nizamabad,
Adilabad, Karimnagar, Warangal, Khammam and Nalgonda districts.

B) Climate:
The climate of Andhra Pradesh varies considerably, depending on the geographical regions.
Monsoons play a major role in determining the climate of the state. Summers last from
March to June. In the coastal plain, the summer temperatures are generally higher than the
rest of the state, with temperature ranging between 20C and 41C.
July to September is the season for tropical rains in Andhra Pradesh. The state receives
heavy rainfall from South West monsoon during these months. About one third of the total
rainfall in Andhra Pradesh is brought by the North East monsoon. October and November
see low-pressure systems and tropical cyclones form in the Bay of Bengal. Which, along
with the North East monsoon, bring rains to the southern and coastal regions of the state.
November, December, January, and February are the winter months in Andhra Pradesh.
Since the state has a long coastline the winters are not very cold. The range of winter
temperature is generally 12C to 30C.

C) Rainfall:
The average normal rainfall in the state is 940 mm. The state receives its rainfall both
from the South-West (SW) and North East (NE) monsoons. The South West monsoon usually
begins from early June and last until the end of September. The North East monsoon is
active between October to December. The annual precipitation received from the
South West monsoon was 809mm in 2010-11. The rainfall received from North East monsoon

I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11

Irrigation profile of Andhra Pradesh

was 332mm in 2010-11. There is also a wide variation in the rainfall between different districts
of the state. The six north coastal districts and three north Telengana districts receive more
than 1,000mm rainfall per annum, while the districts of Kurnool, Anantapur and YSR Kadapa
register scanty rainfall which is below 700mm. In Andhra Pradesh the incidence of rainfall in
South West monsoon accounts for more than 60% of the annual rainfall.
The total estimated quantity of water received by Andhra Pradesh through its normal annual
rainfall of 940 mm is 24.4 (MHaM) million hectare meters. However, due to frequent failure of
rainfall this potential is seldom achieved. In the last 10 years, we received deficient rainfall for
eight years. The rainfall received since 2000-01 to 2010-11 is given in the table below.

2. Water Resources:
Andhra Pradesh is blessed with major rivers like Godavari, Krishna, Penna, Vamsadhara
and 36 other Medium, Minor rivers / streams. Out of these, the four major rivers Godavari,
Krishna, Penna and Vamsadhara stretching thousands of square kilometers of land, created
largest perennial cultivable area in the country. The alluvial soils laid down by these rivers are
highly fertile when irrigated. There are about 81 basins and sub-basins in the state of Andhra
Pradesh and the total estimated yield at 75% dependability from the above sources is about
2769 thousand million cubic feet out of which 2527.54 thousand million cubic feet is from
12 interstate rivers and 241.45 thousand million cubic feet is from 28 intrastate rivers which
are keeping Andhra Pradesh as one of Indias leading agricultural states. Today Andhra Pradesh
leads the country in the production of rice (paddy). The other major crops grown here include
Sugarcane, Oilseeds, Beans, and Pulses.
Apart from the surface water, as per Central Ground Water Development Board, the annual
replenishable ground water in the state is 1074 thousand million cubic feet. Thus the total
availability of surface and ground water sources is 2769+1074=3843 thousand million cubic
feet.
The basinwise water availability in the state of Andhra Pradesh is given in the table following.

4. Jalayagnam
Government have initiated Jalayagnam with the aim of completing 86 Projects (44 Major,
30 Medium, 4 Flood Banks and 8 Modernization) to create new Irrigation Potential of
97.02 lakh acres (39.28 lakh hectares) besides stabilization of 22.53 lakh acres (9.01 lakh
hectares) with an outlay of Rs. 1,85,578 crores. Jalayagnam projects also provide drinking
water to a population of 2.11 crores covering 6310 villages in 425 mandals utilizing 65.141
thousand million cubic feet of water. So far, works costing about Rs.1,19,612 crores have
been tendered and are under various stages of construction.
a) Objectives of programme:
1. To bring benefits of irrigation to backward, tribal and drought prone areas of the state
2. To provide industrial and drinking water in adequate quantity
3. To promote conjunctive use of ground water with surface water
In this programme, works were taken up under Major, Medium and Minor Irrigation sectors
to utilize dependable water and flood waters to the maximum extent possible for irrigating the
entire cultivable command area in the State. Wherever it is not possible to irrigate the area by
gravity, Lift Irrigation Schemes are proposed to benefit the backward and drought prone areas
in the State. 31 Lift Irrigation Schemes are taken up to provide new Irrigation Potential of
62.83 lakh acres and stabilization of 2.19 lakh acres. The estimated/sanctioned cost of
31 Lift Irrigation Schemes is Rs. 1,19,185 lakh crores. The total power required is about
8557 Mega Watts. 4 Nos Hydel Power Projects are proposed to generate 1850 Mega Watts
.i.e at Pulichintala,Polavaram,Dummugudem and Kanthanapally and Andhra Pradesh
Generation Corporation is contemplating new power projects to meet the demand.
To achieve the targeted goals, the following efforts have already been made and yielding
anticipated results.
The project works were divided into separate packages and, agencies were fixed and the
works are at different stages of progress.
With the deployment of additional number of Special Collectors and Special Deputy
Collectors along with field staff the process of land acquisition is hastened for completing the
projects. A new State Rehabilitation and Resettlement (R&R) policy 2005 is formulated and

being adopted for giving benefits to the displaced families. 36 No.s of projects are covered
under Resettelement and Rehabilitation

covering 17 districts. 545 No.s of villages are

notified (fully-340 and partially -205) and socio-economic survey is completed in 510 villages.
Number of families affected are 1,30,523. Number of Resettelement and Rehabilitation
centers 492 and number of houses contemplated are 1,14,331 out of which 10,216 houses
are constructed. The expenditure incurred so far is Rs.1091.84 crores The states
Resettelement and Rehabilitation policy considered to be one of the best.
One Chief Engineer is appointed exclusively for obtaining Central Water Commission
clearances and Accelerated Irrigation Benifit Programme assistance for the prioritized projects
for pursuing the Government of India. Efforts are on to get balance clearances very soon. All
the clearances are obtained from Central Water Commission for 25 number of projects and
for 19 number of projects, the clearances are at various stages.
In order to exercise impartial and thorough check on the quality of execution, an innovative
method has been adopted in Jalayagnam by introducing Third Party Quality Control with
external agencies , approved by the Government. These external agencies consist of experts
in execution of works and quality control. Periodical inspections by experts from reputed
education and research institutes are arranged by these external agencies for their
observations and recommendations for achieving better quality. Payments to the executing
agencies are being made under the certification of third party quality control agencies.
Apart from the third party quality control, the departmental Quality Control units are
strengthened to exercise parallel check on the quality of works. Three Chief Engineers are
appointed for heading the Quality Control units for the three regions of the state.
In addition, the restoration of flood banks at a cost of Rs. 2,313 crores to a length of 670
Kms along Krishna, Godavari, Vamsadhara , Nagavali, Kundu, Handri and Penna rivers
have been taken up to protect the habitations and ayacut from submersion. It is programmed
to be completed by 2013-14.
Modernization works were also taken up in Krishna, Godavari, Penna deltas, Nagarjuna
Sagar project command, Tunga Bhadra Project -High Level Canal & Low Level Canal, Yeleru,
Nagavali and Nizamasagar Projects with an amount of Rs. 15,000 crores to modernize the

Performance Budget

1.

Preamble
(a) During the Year 2010-11, the Irrigation & Command Area Development Department
has secured significant gains to the farmers in the rural areas, as evident from the
fact that 1.49 lakh acres of new Irrigation Potential is created. During this year
significant studies have been made towards efficient use of resources:human,
financial and natural endowed with the department. This has been accomplished by
giving sharper focus on accelerating the pace of creation of Irrigation Potential in the
projects under construction.
(b) In addition, close monitoring of construction programme under each project enabled
the department to remove many impediments coming in the way of taking the benefits
to the farmers expeditiously. In result, the department is geared up to realise the
quantum jump in creation of Irrigation Potential in the coming financial year.
(c) The Government accords highest priority to Irrigation sector, considering the
immense opportunities in this sector to trigger the growth in rural economy.
Irrigation development has a positive contribution in reducing poverty in the rural
areas.

2.

Department strategy
(a) Effective Water Management
(i) Management of water crisis in the delta prompted the department to adopt
effective water management practices and the results have been very
encouraging. There are lessons from the ground that it is possible to minimise
use of water and yet achieve higher productivity. The department would like to
implement these lessons more intensively across the State by building
awareness among the farmers and also by keeping the effective water
management as the most important performance indicator of the department.
(ii) On an average, we are using 1 cusec of water to irrigate between 80 to 100
acres of paddy. Strictly, this volume of water is not required for healthy crop and

I & CAD Department

49

Performance Budget

Annual Report - 2010-11

a cusec of water can quite comfortably serve 130 acres of paddy. This irrigation
would focus all enabling farmers to improve water use efficiency without
sacrificing yields.
(iii) In addition there is an imperative need to diversify the cropping pattern currently
being adopted. For various cultural and sociological reasons, farmers in irrigation
areas generally prefer to grow paddy. However other crops available would
enable farmers to increase their income and at the same time would use much
less water.
(iv) Improving Irrigation efficiency is not only related to the manner in which field
irrigation is conducted but it is also related to the technology which is utilized as
an experimental measure. The Government proposes to install large sprinkler/
drip Irrigation systems such that better water utilization could be attained.
(v) At the same time, greater emphasis would be laid on making improvements to
existing infrastructure in order to ensure that maximum water is delivered to the field
minimizing transmission losses. Further the department has already initiated action
to demonstrate effective use of water through drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation
in large ayacut areas which are subjected to water stress.
(b) Focus on creation of Irrigation potential.
The department has decided to give highest priority to such of the works which can
contribute to realisation of irrigation potential immediately. This is an overarching
principle in the allocation of budgetary amounts for various projects.
(c) High priority for backward areas.
The endeavour of the Government is to ensure that the benefits of development are
extended to all areas of the state and to all its people. The principal focus of the
Irrigation Department is therefore the increase of irrigated areas, particularly in drought
and backward areas of the state. As a policy measure, irrigation projects would be
planned, executed and managed with a principal focus on eradication of poverty.
Specifically, new areas would be brought under plough in the chronically drought
and poverty effected areas of the state.
(d) Focus on quality and cost effectiveness.
Creation of irrigation infrastructure with high quality standards is the endeavour of
the department. There will be sharper focus on this aspect by intensifying the quality
control mechanism already in use in the department. The department has initiated
50

I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11

Performance Budget

the action for bringing about reforms in cost estimation and the procurement
processes for achieving cost effectiveness in the execution of the works. These
initiatives will further be strengthened in the coming financial year.
(e) Skill development and capacity building of the staff of the Irrigation Department.
(i)

The department is endowed with large pool of trained and experienced staff.
The department is formulating human resource development plan for the
irrigation staff so that they can be continuously trained, to become technically
more skilled with latest developments. Adequate budgetary provisions have
been made for the skill development and capacity building of the staff.

(ii) During the year 2010-11 a budget of Rs. 12983.62 crores have been provided
under Plan and it was contemplated to bring in a new ayacut of 8,80,340 lakh &
13,53,878 acres stabiligation against which an Irrigation Potential (IP) of 1,40,426
lakh & 5793 acres stabilisation was achieved by 3/2011. To keep up the
momentum of progress in the coming year Rs. 12,44,647 lakh is provided under
plan in Budget Estimate for 2011-12.

RIVER : GODAVARI
BASIN, SUB-BASINS

Location :
The Godavari basin lies between latitude 16-16'N to 22-43' N and longitude
7326' E to 83-7' E. It is roughly triangular in shape with the main river itself running
practically along the base of the triangle. The basin extends over an area of 1,20,777
square miles which is nearly 10 percent of the total geographical area of India. The
basin comprises areas in the States of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh,
Orissa and Karnataka.

Boundaries:
The Western Ghats, running parallel to the coast form a continuous water-shed on
the West.
On the north, the basin is bounded by the Satmala hills, the Ajanta range and the
Mahadeo hills.
The basin is bounded on the east by Eastern Ghats and the Bay of Bengal. The
Eastern Ghats are not so well defined or continuous as the Sahyadri range on the
west. They rise from the plains of East Godavari and Visakhapatnam to the level of
the table land of Jeypore.
On the south, the Balagthat and the Mahadeo ranges stretching forth from the eastern
flank of the Western Ghats and the Anantgiri and other ranges of the hills and ridges
separate the Godavari basin from the Krishna Basin.

Sub-Basin:The Godavari basin may be divided into the following twelve sub-basins:

G-1. Upper Godavari:This sub-basin includes the reach of river Godavari from its source to its confluence
with the Manjira. The sub-basin excludes the catchment areas of the Pravara, the

Preamble
(a) Nizamsagar Project was constructed by the Nizam during 1923-31 to provide
irrigation to 2.75 lakh acres in Nizambad District. Improvements to Nizamsagar
project are aimed at restoring the lost capacity of the reservoir due to silting, by
raising the height of the gates by 1.5 metersand strengthening the gravity dam.
(b) The modernisation of Nizamsagar Project system was taken up during 1970 and
the full reservoir level (FRL) of Nizamsagar has been raised from 426.87 to
428.24 meters which resulted in, increase in the storage capacity of the reservoir
from 11.8 to 17.8 thousand million cubic feet (TMC).
(c) Singitham and Kalyanivagu diversions to supplement Nizamsagar main canal have
been constructed at a cost of Rs. 985 lakhs as suggested by the Technical Expert
Committee to minimize the gap ayacut, with National Bank for Agriculture and Rural
Development (NABARD) loan assistance.

Krishna Basin

RIVER: KRISHNA
BASIN, ITS SUB-BASINS

Locations :
O

The Krishna basin lies between latitudes 13 7' N to 19 20' N and longitudes 73 22' E to
O
81 10' E. It is roughly triangular in shape with its base along the Western Ghats, and apex at
Vijayawada. The basin extends over an area of 99,980 square miles which is nearly 8 percent
of the total geographical area of India.

Boundaries :
The Western ghats, 7,000 to 2,000 ft. high running parallel to the coast, form a continouous
watershed on the west.
On the north, the Balaghat and the Mahadeo ranges stretching forth from the eastern flank of
the Western ghats and the Anantagiri and other ranges of hills and ridges separate the Krishna
basin from the Godavari.
On the eastern side, the broken ranges of the Eastern Ghats dissect the country and proceeding
south-west leave broad flat tracts of land between the hills and the sea.
On the south, the Uravakonda and the Mitta-kondala ridges and the Erramalai hills separate
the Krishna basin from the Penna basin and the Nallamalai and the Veligondla hills separate
the Krishna basin from other minor basins. Other ridges on the south separate the Krishna
basin from the Cauvery basin.
A map of the Krishna basin is appended to this report.

Sub basins. :
The Krishna Basin may be divided into the following (12) sub-basins :

K. 1. Upper Krishna :
The river Krishna from source to the confluence with it of the Dudhganga; the sub-basin includes
the catchment area of the river Krishna and all of its tributaries which fall into the Krishna in
this reach up to and including the Dudhganga.

SAGAR SRISAILAM PROJECT
RIVER : KRISHNA
(Kurnool District)

1.

Preamble
(a) Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy Sagar Dam (NSRSP)
This is hydro electric project constructed in deep gorge across River Krishna at about
3 km from the famous Srisailam temple. It is the first major hydro electric project taken up
for power generation in the state. Although originally envisaged as a purely power project,
irrigation and water supply are also included subsequently. The construction of dam including
crest gates was completed in 1984.
(b) Srisailam Right Bank Canal (SRBC)
The Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal(KWDT) in 1973 has allocated 800 TMC of Krishna
water to Andhra Pradesh and also entitled 11Thousand milliom cubic feet (TMC) as its
share in the regenerated water. In consonance with this, for utilizing 19 TMC of Krishna
waters, the SRBC Scheme was formulated and was cleared by the Planning Commission
in 1981. This scheme was formulated to irrigate 1.90 lakh acres in chronically famine striken
area of Kurnool (3 Talukas) and YSR Kadapa (1 Taluk) districts of Rayalaseema region.
(c) Srisailam Left Bank Canal (SLBC)
It is contemplated to provide Irrigation facilities in drought prone areas of Nalgonda district
in addition to drinking water to fluoride affected villages enroute. The project is later renamed
as Alimineti Madhava Reddy Project. This is a lift scheme taking off from foreshore of
Nagarjuna Sagar reservoir and consists of two canals.

SRISAILAM LEFT BANK CANAL
PROJECT
RIVER : KRISHNA
(Nalgonda District)

1.

Preamble
The Alimineti Madhava Reddy Srisailam Left Bank Canal Project (AMRP) was started in 1983
to provide irrigation facilities in the drought prone areas of Nalgonda District for 3 lakh acre
Irrigated Dry (ID), besides supplying drinking water to the fluoride affected villages enroute,
utilizing 30 Thousand million cubic feet of Krishna Water. This scheme has two alternatives.
1.

Gravity scheme from foreshore of Srisailam reservoir, through two tunnels.

2.

Lift scheme from foreshore of Nagarjuna Sagar Reservoir.

The works on main canal from common point (i.e., km 25.00) were taken up during 1983-84,
pending finalization of Head Works.
In April, 1995, the Government decided to take up lift scheme from the foreshore of Nagarjuna
Sagar reservoir, to achieve early benefits, as the tunnel scheme would require 7 to 8 years time
for its completion. Accordingly lift scheme works are taken up and completed.
The Government in 2004 decided to take up tunnel scheme as a permanent solution and
accorded approval for tunnel scheme for Rs 2,813.00 crore in 8/2005.
The Government have also approved a lift irrigation scheme from foreshore of
Udayasamudram balancing reservoir, for Rs 699.00 crore in 6/2007 to irrigate an additional
ayacut of 1.00 lakh acre.

15. PRAKASAM BARRAGE


RIVER : KRISHNA
( Krishna District)

1.

Preamble
The Krishna anicut with its canals for irrigation and flood banks for the protection of the
Krishna delta from the floods was constructed from 1852 to 1855 at a cost of Rs. 2 crores.
It was designed by Sir Arthur Cotton and was built by Capt. Orr. The barrage was built to irrigate
an ayacut of 5.8 lakh acres.
Due to development of ayacut in Krishna delta, the anicut was incapable of providing water
for irrigation. Since irrigation under river Krishna was developed in the uplands, other states
were also fully utilizing the allotted Krishna water. The scenario necessitated construction of a
structure, which can head up water 12 ft. above the crest of the anicut to cater to the needs of an
ayacut of 13 lakh acres in Krishna, West Godavari, Guntur and prakasam Districts.
Thus, Prakasam Barrage was born. It was named after the great leader
Sri Tanguturi Prakasam Panthulu, the barrage was constructed between 1954 to 1957 and
costed Rs. 2.78 crores
The Krishna River received historic floods during the period 2-10-2009 to 13-10-2009 at
Prakasam barrage. The maximum observed flood inflow was 11,10,404 cusecs seen at 11.00
PM on 05-10-2009 which is the highest recorded flood discharge after construction of Prakasam
barrage. The previous maximum flood discharge was 9,32,000 cusecs observed during the
year 1998.

Preamble
Poola Subbaiah Veligonda project aims to provide irrigation facilities to 4.475 lakhs acres
and drinking water to 15 lakhs of population of chronologically drought prone areas in Prakasam,
Cuddapah and Nellore districts of Andhra Pradesh.
43.5 thousand million cubic feet flood water of Krishna river is proposed to be drawn from
the foreshore of Srisailam project reservoir near Kollamvagu by excavating two tunnels through
Nallamala hill ranges with technology of tunnel boring machine and fed to Nallamala Sagar
reservoir by feeder canal.
Nallamala Sagar reservoir is being formed by constructing Cement concrete dams across
the gaps near Sunkesula (V), Gottipadia (V) and Kakarla (V) in Nallamala hills of Prakasam
District.
Three irrigation canals i.e., Teegaleru Canal, Gottipadia Canal and Eastern Canal take off
from the Nallamalasagar reservoir to irrigate 4,47,300acres, Gundlabrahmeswaram Reservoir,
Rallavagu Reservoir and to provide drinking water facilities to 15.25 Lakh people in 30 Mandals
of Prakasam, Nellore and YSR Kadapa Districts enroute the canals in the command area of
above three districts.

It is bounded on the north by the Erramala range, on the east by the Nallamala and Veligonda
ranges of the Eastern Ghats, on the south by the Nandidurg hills and on the west by the
narrow ridge separating it from the Vedavati valley of the Krishna basin.

Geology :
The geology of the drainage basin is predominantly formed from Archean rocks, principally
granitic intrustives into metamorphic schists. The Archeans in this region comprise biotite
and hornblende granite-gneisses, granodiorite, diorite, and pegmatite of secondary importance
are the Dhawar metamorphics comprising of phyllites, slates, schists with chlorite, biotite,
garnet, staurolite, kyanite, sillimanite and hornblende. In the central part of the basin, the
dominant rocks belong to the Cuddapah and Kurnool groups consisting of conglomerates,
sandstones, shales, dolomites, limestones and cherts. These are intruded by doloritic and
basaltic igneous materials in many places. In the coastal regions major sediments are laterites
and recent alluvium.

Principal tributaries :
The principal tributaries of the Penna river are Jayamangali, Kunderu, Sagileru from the
left and Chitravati, Papagni and Cheyyeru from the right.

CANAL
(LINGALA CANAL)
RIVER : PENNA
( Ananthapur Districts)

Preamble
The Chitravathi right main canal (Lingala Canal) is proposed to irrigate 25,000 acres of
land in the semi arid and perched area located in Lingala, Pulivendula, Simhadripuram
and Vemula mandals in Kadapa district. Besides this, the canal also serves three
villages namely Dadi thota of Thadimarri mandal, Goddumarri & Singavaram villages of
Yellanur Mandal of Ananthapur district which are also equally suffering for want of
sufficient rain fall.
In addition to the above, it acts as a carrier canal to Pulivendula branch canal in place of
Chitravathi river which is being used for the present, for this purpose.
This canal is also intended to serve the ayacut lying between contours+300.00m and
+280.00m near Karnapapayapally, Velidandla and Lingala villages covering parts of three
revenue villages namely Velidandla, Lopatnuthala and Lingala by pumping.
Further, 4 tanks namely Lingala tank, Bonala tank, Ippatla tank and Erraballi tank are
proposed to be filled up by pumping from this canal as they are not being filled up
regularly and the ayacutdars under these tanks are deprived of crops. By pumping to
these tanks, the ayacutdars shall have at least one assured crop each year.
Finally, the canal terminates into the foreshore of Vemula tank to feed the same by
gravity with a discharging capacity of 1.30 cumecs. This tank is a percolation tank and
is not being filled regularly, and hence not serving the purpose for which it is intended
to. But when feeding is done to this tank by C.B.R. Right canal the tank is assured to
have water. In addition to serve 25,000 acres of ayacut, the canal fulfills drinking water
needs of all the villages enroute.

BACK GROUND & PREAMBLE:


Somasila Project is constructed across the river Penna near Somasila village of
Sri Potti Sreeramulu Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh, was originally mooted as part of
Krishna-Penna project by the Government of erstwhile composite state of Madras to
divert waters of Krishna river into Somasila reservoir. Based on the suggestion of
Central Water & Power Commission (CW&PC), the proposals were revised in 1966
and again in 1968. Keeping in view, the semi arid catchment area and the reservoir
being a terminal one, it was decided to construct a reservoir of 2,208 M.cum. (78 TMC)
gross capacity and 1,994 M.cum. (70.421 TMC) live capacity to store high floods of
erratic Penna river and to utilize the carryover storage during the years of lean flows.
Planning Commission accorded clearance in the year 1973 and the scheme was
sanctioned for Rs.17.20 crores for a limited scope, Stage-l envisaging formation of full
earth dam, spillway upto +86.868 M level without gates to store 453 MCum (16 TMC)
and Land Acquisition upto +86.868M level for achieving the benefits of stabilizing
1.153 lakh hectares in the existing Penna Delta and by supplementing tanks in the
uplands by excavating North Feeder channel, South Feeder channel, Kavali canal and
Kanupur canal. Kanupur canal system was sanctioned separately as a medium irrigation
scheme and the main canal is nearing completion.
In 1975, the Krishna Water Dispute Tribunal gave award in which, there was no allocation
for Somasila Project complex and so it had to entirely depend on its own flows. In order
to store flood water during good years, it had become necessary to install gates to
increase the storage capacity. Taking advantage of the increased capacity, an additional
irrigated dry (ID) ayacut of 38,475 hectares is also proposed under the canals besides
stabilizing the existing ayacut of 1,04,490 hectares under Penna Delta and the tanks
under North Feeder channel, South Feeder channel, Kavali canal.
In the year 1976, the three riparian states, viz., Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka & Maharashtra
has agreed to give 142 Mcum (5 TMC) each from their share of Krishna waters for
drinking water purposes of Chennai city. Proposals were evolved to supply drinking
water to Chennai city through Somasila reservoir, which is the only feasible way.
Accordingly. additional provision is made for storing and transferring 426 M cum
(15 TMC) of water in Somasila reservoir.

10. SANGAM BARRAGE


CUM BRIDGE
RIVER : PENNA
(Sri Potti Sreeramulu Nellore District)

Preamble :
Sangam anicut was constructed across Penna river during 1882-1886 contemplating
to supply water to Nellore tank supply channel and Kanupur canal on right side and Duvvur
canal, Kanigiri main canal and Kavali canal on left side. This anicut is the life line for the
irrigation of about 3.85 lakh acres now being irrigated. The following are the details of ayacut
fed with the water from Somasila reservoir.
1)

Penna delta

2.47 lakh acres

2)

Kanupur canal

0.63 lakh acres

3)

Kavali canal

0.75 lakh acres

Total

3.85 lakh acres

Sangam anicut was constructed across Penna River during 1882-1886


During course of time thousands of acres of additlonal ayacut was brought into cultivation.
It has became a regular practice to increase the water level by 0.90 mtrs., above crest level
of Sangam anicut by providing sand bags of 1.20 mtrs., height over the crest for the entire
length for providing commandability to the existing ayacut under Kanupur and Kavali Canals.
This practice of placing the sand bags over the crest of anicut is resulting in recurring cost in
lakhs of rupees for Government every year. Unless the anicut is replaced by a new one, the
anicut is likely to prone for breaching due to over age (crossed 100 years).
In addition to the above, the vehicular traffic on the Sangam anicut is increasing day by
day as there is no bridge nearby to cross the river in between Somasila and Jonnawada.

11. NELLORE BARRAGE


CUM BRIDGE
RIVER : PENNA
(Sri Potti Sreeramulu Nellore District)

The Penna river canal system consists of the Nellore Anicut system and the Nellore tank,
together with the Sangam anicut system. The oldest reservoir under the Penna is the Nellore
tank which originally received its water by a channal taken off from the river in the neighbourhood
of Mulumudi and which also acted as a catch channal to receive the water of the Ludums
which raise near Aiyagaripalli, Podalakur etc., In 1854-55 the Madras Governement constructed
the anicut at Nellore across the river to secure certain supply of water for all the tanks in the
Southern delta and also sanctioned improvements to the Nellore tank. After few failures the
present structure was designed by the famous Engineer Sir Arthur Cotton and was
completed in 1862-63 and has stood admirably. The crest of the anicut is 9.61 feet above the
bed of the river and 42.55 feet above the sea level and its length is 2,040 feet. In place of it the
new structure is proposed and the salient features of the proposed structrure are as follows.

MEDIUM IRRIGATION - IMPORTANT ACHIEVEMENTS


Irrigation projects are broadly classified in to three categories viz.Major, Medium and
Minor . Medium Irrigation projects contemplated to create Irrigation Potential ranging from
2,000 hectares (5,000 acres) to 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres). So far Government of Andhra
Pradesh completed 68 Medium Irrigation Projects and created irrigation benefits to an extent
of 3,34,021 hectares (8,25,033 acres) in the backward and remote areas of Andhra Pradesh.
The cost of Medium Irrigation projects is moderate and varies from Rs.50.00 crores to Rs.250.00
crores and completion of these projects takes about 2 years .The targeted irrigation benefits
can be achieved immediately.
In order to utilize all the small rivers flowing in the state and to fully harness these rivers
and to achieve expeditious rrigation potential creation, the Government have taken up all the
15 pending Medium Irrigation projects with ample budget allocation. The estimated cost of
these 15 Medium Irrigation projects is Rs. 1,426.62 crores and the contemplated irrigation
potential is 2,00,659 acres. So far 4 Medium Irrigation projects namely Suddavagu, Gundlavagu,
Veligallu Projects and Swarnamukhi Barrage have been completed with a cost of
Rs 405.41 crores and Irrigation Potential created is 49,600 acres. Maddigedda project in east
Godavari district, Yerrakalva project in West Godavari district have been creating partial irrigation
benefits to an extent of 20,700 acres. The remaining 9 projects and those already providing
partial irrigation benefits will be ready by next year. Thus construction of new projects in Medium
Irrigation sector will be completed. Expenditure incurred in budget estimate 2011-12 on all
these projects up to 8/2011 is Rs.48.39 crores and so far irrigation benefits to an extent of
78,200 acres is created.
A budget allocation of Rs.375.00 crores is made in the year 2011-12 to complete these
projects. But the only impediment for slow progress of these projects is land acquisition (LA)
and Rehabilitation & Resettlement (R&R). Government have taken necessary steps to resolve
these two issues. Commissioner (R&R) and Ex. Officio Secretary to Government was
formulated to expedite the implementation of R & R packages. At the present pace of progress
all the Medium Irrigation projects (except one or two) will be ready by 2012.

Accelerated Irrigation Benifit Programme (AIBP) assisted Projects


Six Medium Irrigation Projects which were held up due to paucity of funds were taken up
under AIBP programme from 1996 97 to 2000-01. Out of this 3 Projects have been completed
to create the originally contemplated Irrigated Potential. One Project has been deleted and the
balance two projects are programmed for completion by 12/2011. Further 11 ongoing Medium
Irrigation projects are taken up under EPC. Out of which 8 projects are under Prime Minister's
I & CAD Department

221

Medium Irrigation Sector

Annual Report - 2010-11

relief package and one project is under normal Accelareted Irrigation Benefit Programme .
Out of 9 projects, three Projects are completed and also partial irrigation potential is created
in another two projects. The total Irrigation Potential created for the 9 projects under Accelareted
Irrigation Benefit Programme is 56,532 acres as against the contemplated Irrigated Potential
of 1,24,632 acres.

Japan International Cooperation Agency(JICA) assistance


Government is keen to modernize the existing Medium Irrigation projects by strengthening
the Dam & Appurtenant (D&A) works, improving the conveyance efficiency of canals by bringing
the canals to their standards by lining the canals, construction of Cross Masonry and Cross
Drainage structures, providing shuttering arrangements and measuring devices in order to
improve the system efficiency and also to bridge the gap ayacut. The Government have
proposed 20 completed projects for Japan International Cooperation Agency assistance for
an amount of Rs.491.43 crores. The Japan International Cooperation Agency is providing
loan assistance for 11 No. of Projects in Phase - I for modernization with a total cost of
Rs.317.09 crores. In Phase-II the remaining 9 Nos. projects will be taken up in 2011-2012 with
total cost of Rs.174.34 crores. This modernization process will be completed within a span of
3 years. One project modernization work is already grounded. Another project is in agreement
stage for remaining 7 projects tenders are in process.
For the upkeep of the completed projects, sufficient funds are being pumped in to the
system, through plough back of water cess and also additional funds under Operation and
Maintenance (O&M).
For taking up Operation and Maintanance works for all completed Medium Irrigation
projects under Category A (Plough back) & Category B (differed maintenance works), the
Commissioner, Command Area Development Authuority has allocated Rs.2.00 crores and
Rs.1.00 crore during 2010-11 respectively.
By completing all these projects, the investments made in this sector will usher a
new era in the Socio economic development of the people under in these commands.
The ayacut irrigated last year (i.e., 2010-11) is 4,77,163 acres. The ayacut proposed in
Khariff this year (i.e., 2011-12) is 5,31,760 acres.
Some of the details of 15 ongoing Medium Irrigation projects were given on the following
pages.
Further a list of Medium irrigation projects taken up for modernisation with loan assistance

II. ANDHRA PRADESH WATER SECTOR IMPROVEMENT


PROJECT (APWSIP)
(Rehabilitation & Modernisation of Nagarjuna Sagar Project)
The Nagarjunasagar project is a multi purpose project, comprising a dam and two
main canals, one each on either flank of the river. Besides providing irrigation facilities to
8.95 lakh hectares (about 22 lakh acres) of parched lands, the project was formulated to
generate about 810 mega watts of hydropower. Subsequently, power units were constructed
at the head sluices of right and left canals for generating 150 Mega Watts (MW) of power,
increasing the total power generation to 960 MW. The project is conceived mainly to convert
the rain fed cultivation to irrigated agriculture in the districts of Nalgonda, Khammam, Krishna
and West Godavari on left command and Guntur and Prakasam on right command. At
Nagarjunasagar dam, while priority has been given for irrigation, power generation is
incidental and to the extent of downstream irrigation (Krishna Delta) demands except during
the reservoir spilling period.

I . Ayacut
The Right canal is designed to irrigate 0.475 million hectares in the command area
and the Left canal is designed to irrigate 0.42 million hectares
Right Canal

0.475 million hectares.

Left Canal

0.420 million hectares.

Total :

0.895 million hectares.

II . Need for Total Rehabilitation andModernisation


Existing deficiencies
-

The canal system is in a deteriorated condition due to lack of maintenance


over several years.

266

The distribution system is particularly in a bad shape.

The canals and distributary system have lost their designed carrying capacity.

Several structures and canal lining have been damaged.


I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11

Projects ongoing with external Aid

The shutters of the Off Takes are either inoperable or not available.

The embankment reaches have lost their section profile and seepages are
observed at several locations particularly near the structures and high
embankments.

Causes for deterioration

Canal system became sufficiently old.

Deferred maintenance.

Provision of meager recurring maintenance grant..

Lack of proper operation planning and monitoring.

Unmanageable large number of gated controls for off takes.

Lack of inspection roads along distributaries with carrying capacity less than
150 cusecs

Localization of mixed cropping pattern under one and the same major, minors and
sub minor.

Indiscipline among farmers in not following water regulation.

Large scale conversion of Irrigated Dry into wet in head reaches.

Over irrigation in head reaches resulting in excess water drawls.

Excess seepage in embankment reaches.

Rain water entering into canals behind lining, dislodging the same and spoiling the
banks.

Extensive vegetation has grown along majors and minors making them inaccessible.

Un-authorized pump sets installed on the canals for irrigating ayacut in upper reaches.

III. Rehabilitation and Modernisation


A total rehabilitation or modernization of an irrigation system is a comprehensive term
which includes a review of the crop pattern and crop calendar to make best use of the soils
in the command with regard to their suitability for growing different crops and to avoid excessive
losses in the distribution system, a new appraisal of irrigation water requirements and efficiency
of water application, improvements to the drainage system, modernization of canal structures
and construction of new structures as may be necessary adequate on-farm development
proper water management and provision of satisfactory maintenance of the system in terms
of money, time etc. Modernization is expected to help in achieving significant improvements
in the over all irrigation efficiency and also increase in the crop productivity, apart from realizing
the contemplated command area.

1.

Preamble
(a)

The Inter State and Water Resources Unit essentially looks after the rights and
obligations of the State of Andhra Pradesh over the waters of Inter-State rivers and
protects the interests of the State. Water is a moving resource which implies that
changes in quality or quantity of water in an upper State directly affects the use of
water some where down stream in Andhra Pradesh.

(b)

The conflicts of interests which may thus arise will be looked into by this Unit by
trying to enforce an existing Agreement, Award, Judicial Decree, Legislation or
Administrative machinery so as to secure a fair and justified distribution of the rightful
share of waters belonging to Andhra Pradesh out of the Inter-State rivers.

(c)

There are 12 Inter-State rivers in Andhra Pradesh. While the Godavari, the Krishna
and the Pennar are major Inter State rivers ; Bahuda, Mahendratanaya, Poondi are
minor drainages, and Vamsadhara, Nagavali, Arniar Kortaliar, Palar and Ponniar are
nine medium interstate rivers. Out of these, the Krishna and the Godavari river waters
are covered by the Tribunal Awards.

Utilisation of Godavari Waters:


(a)

Catchment Area and Yield


The Godavari is the largest river in South India. It rises in the Sahyadris at an altitude
of +1067 m above Mean Sea Level near Triambakeswar in the Nasik District of
Maharashtra state. The total length of the main river from its source in Maharashtra
to the Delta (Cotton Barrage at Dowlaiswaram) in Andhra Pradesh is about 1,368
km. The basin area, i.e., the area drained by the river at its tributaries is distributed
among the riparian States area as per Table below.

River Basins
(i)

Godavari along with its major tributaries is divided into 12 sub-basins. The
Andhra Pradesh State is covered partly under Manjira (G-4), Middle Godavari
(G-5), Penganga (G-7), Wardha (G-8), Pranahita (G-9) Lower Godavari
(G-10), Sabari (G-12) and full sub-basin of Manair (G-6).
The basin covered 10 Districts in Andhra Pradesh viz,
Adilabad

(100%)

Khammam

(51.2%)

Nizamabad

(100%)

Warangal

(52.5%)

Medak

(84.8%)

East Godavari

(66.8%)

Karimnagar

(99.7%)

West Godavari

(20.0%)

Visakhapatnam

(27.5%)

Ranga Reddy (1.5%)


(ii)

Out of the total area of 73,201 sq km covered by the Godavari basin in Andhra
Pradesh, 57,960 sq km of area lies in Telangana, 15,241 sq km of area lies in
Coastal Andhra. The Telangana area contributes about 456 TMC to Godavari
while the Coastal Andhra contributes about 120 TMC of water.

3. Godavari Water Dispute Tribunal : (GWDT)


(i)

Government of India constituted, the Godavari Water Disputes Tribunal


(GWDT) on 10th April, 1969 for adjudicating the water dispute between the
riparian States regarding the Inter-State River Godavari and the River Valley
there of. The Tribunal gave its award in 1980 and has not made specific
allocations to party states quantifying the share of each State. It has allocated
waters upto specified sites to the upper States and the balance waters are
allocated to Andhra Pradesh.

276

I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11


Water resources with inter state issues

(ii)

It is generally estimated that Andhra Pradesh has been allocated about 1,173
TMC of Godavari waters at 75 percent dependability. However, taking into
consideration the regulated releases from Bhopalapalli Hydro Electric Scheme
and also the re-generation available to Andhra Pradesh from upstream projects,
it is estimated that Andhra Pradesh can put to use about 1,480 TMC of
Godavari waters.

(a)

Water utilized
(i)

Out of the 1,480 TMC allocated to Andhra Pradesh, it is contemplated to utilise


812 TMC of water in Telangana region and 668 TMC in Andhra region Presently
about 800 TMC of Godavari waters is being utilized while about 680 TMC is
yet to be put to use in Andhra Pradesh.

(ii)

In the last two decades, on an average about 3,000 TMC of Godavari waters
has gone waste into sea. This is mainly because, the upper states of Madhya
Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Orissa are not able to harness the Godavari waters
and most of the area in those States is under the forest. Regarding the Andhra
Pradesh, it is to be stated that the water generated within the State is already
put to use, while the water flowing into the river from upper reaches could not
be put to use, due to several constraints.

(b)

Development problem:
(i)

The subject of the under-utilisation of Godavari waters has been a matter of


serious discussion in the recent past. Godavari is a low flowing river. The
main contributory tributaries are the Indravathi and Pranahita which together
account for more than 50 percent of yield of the river Godavari. The river
Godavari, after its confluence with Pranahita and Indravathi flows at a very
low level. The level of the river bed varies from about +95 m to about +17 m
near Polavaram.

(ii)

The entire area of Telangana is above +150 m to about +700 m, indicating the
inevitable situation for resorting to large scale pumping of water. Project sites
are also not very definite in this reach of the river and the challenge now is to
provide the Godavari waters to the needy areas to eradicate the rural poverty.

(c)

Inter State Issues:


(i)

Another problem that is hindering the development of Godavari waters is, the
Inter-State disputes involved in projects like Lendi, Lower Penganga, Pranahita,

I & CAD Department

277

Annual Report - 2010-11


Water resources with inter state issues

Inchampally and Polavaram. After several rounds of negotiations,on 18th


November, 2003, an agreement was concluded on Lendi project with
Maharashtra. Regarding Lower Penganga Project some of the Project Affected
Persons of Maharashtra have gone to Court and the matter has yet to come
for hearing before the Aurangabad bench of Bombay High Court.

(ii)

The Maharashtra Government is not willing for a joint project on Pranahita in


view of submergence of developed ayacut in its territory. Andhra Pradesh is
therefore compelled to go for a lift scheme at Tummidi Hetti on Pranahita in
Adilabad district. The Pranahita Chevella Sujala Sravanthi scheme is
contemplated to irrigate 16.40 lakh acres (6.64 Lakh Hectars) in seven districts
of Telangana Region. The Proposal is to divert 160 TMC of water through
Seven links with 16 numbers of Lifting Points. The first link will take off from
Pranahita Barrage at FRL +152.00 m located at Tummidi Hetti (v) of Adilabad
district.
In order to construct the Barrage on River Pranahita, the consent of
Government of Maharashtra has to be taken as per Clause (V) (3) B, of
Agreement dated 07-08-1978 concluded between Governements of Andhra
Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. The other side of the river bank
is in Maharashtra territory. It involves construction of part of the barrage in
Maharashtra territory which submerge land and forest of Maharashtra territory.
As the consent of Government of Maharashtra negotiations for reaching an
agreement for constitution of Inter State Board to resolve the issues like
Investigation, Land Acquisition and R&R etc., are in progress.

(iii)

Inchampally and Polavaram put together account for utilization of nearly 500
TMC of Godavari waters. The Inchampally Joint Project could not be taken up
because of resistance from Maharashtra and Chattisgarh on account of
submergence of their territories. The submergence of forest area is also an
additional problem. An attempt has been made by proposing a low dam with
+95 m Full Reservoir Level in order to have lesser submergence as compared
to a high dam with Full Reservoir Level +112.77 m, but there is no agreement
between the States. Polavaram with +45.72 m Full Reservoir Level is also
having submergence problems to be sorted out with Orissa and Chattisgarh.

(iv)

As per Inter State Agreement dated 6-10-1975, the state of Andhra Pradesh
can take up Polavaram Project with FRL +45.72 meters. The work was
grounded during 2005 and the state of Orissa filed a Suit in Honble Supreme

278

I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11


Water resources with inter state issues

Court of India praying for staying the construction of the project as there will
be submergence of lands and forest in the territory of Orissa. The Suit and
subsequent Interlocutory applications were suitably replied by the state of
Andhra Pradesh and Union of India. The case stands posted on 01-03-2011
for hearing.

(d)

Constitution of Committee:
(i)

A memorandum was submitted to the Honble Prime Minister on 29th June,


1999 to consider the Inchampally project as a National Project, to expedite all
clearances and to ensure requisite funding and time bound implementation.
Later a high level committee was constituted by the Government of India at
the request of Honble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh in July, 2000. The
committee made following recommendations.

As per the site visit and report of the task force, the Inchampally site is the
most suitable on interstate issues (b) The Joint Control Board consisting of
three States Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Chattisgarh may be
constituted. (c) The State Government have to take a decision on FRL +95
m and communicate to Ministry of Water Resources.
(ii)

The Government of Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra have agreed for the
above but the Government of Chattisgarh have categorically stated in the
High level Committee that they are not in favour of Inchampally Project. Hence,
there is need for Inter-State meeting at the level of Chief Ministers.

4. Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal ( KWDT):


The Krishna is the second largest river in Peninsular India. It rises in Maharashtra near
Mahabaleswar in Western Ghats at an altitude of +1,285 m above Mean Sea Level. It traverses
through Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, covering a total length of 1,392 km. The
Bhima and Tungabhadra are the important tributaries.
The Krishna has a total catchment area of 2.56 lakh sq km of which 75,369 sq km lies in
Andhra Pradesh. The Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal (KWDT) was constituted by the Government
of India in 1969 to settle the disputes of the three riparian states over sharing of Krishna waters.
Government of India under Inter State Water Disputes Act 1956 constituted Krishna Water
Disputes Tribunal (KWDT-1) under the Chairmanship of Sri R.S. Bachawat on 1-04- 1969. The
KWDT-1 after investigating the matter referred to it, gave its final report under Section 5(3) on
31-05- 1976 and it is in operation since then. The KWDT-1 Award provided for review of its order at
any date after 31.5.2000.

Recognizing the important role of community and Water User Associations Government

has formulated a project viz.. Andhra Pradesh Community based Tank Management Project
with World Bank Assistance for Repairs, Renovation and restoring 3000 Tanks throughout
the state covering and stabilizing an area of 2.5 lakhs Ha with a cost of Rs.1044.30 Cr. The
programme spread over 5 years and expected to pave the way for covering the entire Minor
Irrigation sector with similar other projects and make the entire Tank systems self sustaining
and fully involving the community and owned by them. It is expected to cover about 50 to 60%
of the gap ayacut i.e., 5 to 6 lakh acres after the entire feasible tanks are revived and restored
with community involvement. The value and importance of this can be appreciated by the
fact that the increase in the area irrigated would be virtually equal to the entire potential of New
Irrigation Area programmed to be created in state. The cost for this would be much less and
result in improved livelihood systems.
So far, works numbering 1820 have been grounded and in progress. Balance schemes
are in the process of procurement and other stages.

Bring out publications /documents based on filed experience and ensure effective
knowledge sharing
In the year 2010-2011 WALAMTARI has coordinated Field Training Center's activities,

participatory action through work book and conducted many Training Programmes, Workshops
and exposure visits etc.,

Field Training Centres (FTC) with professional support at Circle Level


Government of Andhra Pradesh issued a Go No: 130 dated 30-07-2007, which directs
capacity building for staff and Water Users Associations at circle level under the supervision
and guidance of the Superintending Engineers concerned.
In each FTC, a team of professional support staff consisting of one Training Coordinator
and one Irrigation Engineer (Retired) are taken on contract from the open market. All the
FTCs are transfered to the administrative control of the WALAMTARI from 2009-10. The FTC
facility is used to conduct trainings for the Farmers Organizations and hold regular review
meetings. Necessary infrastructure, teaching-learning equipment is provided to these centers.
Monitoring of the training and capacity building program is carried out at two levels,
first through Monthly Progress Reports (MPRs) and second through Performance Monitoring
of the farmers organizations and the irrigation systems using the WUA self assessment tool
on a half yearly basis.

Participatory Action Plan through Work Book


From the year 2009-10, WALAMTARI is facilitating a seasonal Participatory Action
Planning (PAP) process over the entire state involving review of last seasons work, planning
for next season, setting standards for Water Use Efficiency, Water Audit, Water Tax Collection
and such other parameters. This excercise is helping in building capacity of farmers in terms
of better water management practices.

Induction Training Programme


During the year 2008, about 1000 Assistant Executive Engineers (AEEs) are recruited
into I & CAD Department. During 2010-11, Induction Training Programme for these engineers
is planned in 18 batches.The induction programme is for a period of 6 weeks with 4 weeks
of classroom inputs and 2 weeks of field assignment.
The classroom modules are (a) Investigation, (b) Design & Construction, (c) Operation
and Maintenance, and (d) Management development and soft skills. Each of these modules
322

is for a duration of six working days. The field assignment is for a period of 2 weeks and
covers exercises on investigation, visit to various construction sites and stay with farmers
organizations. A total of 951 Assistant Executive Engineers have successfully completed
the six weeks Induction Training of WALAMTARI by 8th February, 2011.

Management Development Programmes


In the years starting from 2011 to 2013, most of the Chief Engineers and above cadre
officers will retire, leaving a huge gap at management level in the department.
WALAMTARI, in association with Commissioner CADA and Engineer- in- Chief (AW) developed
a Management Development Programme (MDP) for 25 Senior Engineers. The strategy
includes a series of brain storming sessions and exposure visits followed by inputs on irrigation
domain areas in phase I. This phase was started in May 2010 and will be cove by April 2011.
In phase II, they will receive inputs on basic management concepts and in phase III on advanced
management concepts. Institutions of National and International repute are being invited to
provide inputs on selected themes.
Similar Management Development Programme (MDP) is planned for about 125nos. in
5 batches of 25nos. in each batch to take care of the large number of retirements in the
cadres of Chief Engineers, Superintending Engineers & Executive Engineers.

Other Trainings
WALAMTARI conducted Orientation Trainings to in Service Engineers and Technical
Officers of the Irrigation & Command Area Development in the field of computers in
MS-Office. It also conducted Training to technical officers on scrutiny of estimates, Tender
Processes and Noting & Drafting skills.
WALAMTARI has handled exposure visits of Officials of Gulbarga, Farmers & Engineers
of Orrissa , Direct Recruits Class I Engineers of Water Resource Development Department
of Maharashtra and Farmers from Haryana.
The details of the trainings conducted by WALAMTARI in the year 2010-2011 from
01.04.2010 to 31.1.2011 are detailed below month wise:

Hostel:
WALAMTARI presently has an old hostel which can accommodate only 38 participants

at a time. As per the reorganisation proposals approved by the Executive committee, it is


proposed to run at least 3 programmes at a time. This requires accommodation for at least
100 participants.
In view of this, it is proposed to construct a new hostel at WALAMTARI with 50 rooms
for double occupation.

2.

Water Resources Education Centre (WREC):


Water is a very scarce resource and judicious use of water should be achieved not

only in irrigation but also in every day life also. For example, knowledge on water cycle,
Water sources, Water supply, quality and wastage aspects should be taught to every body
from childhood itself.
WREC acts as a museum cum education centre where school children, Teachers,
common citizen and farmers could learn about various aspects of water. Such a learning
centre would go a long way in raising awareness among the general public and would
contribute to better community level action to save, conserve, reuse and recycle water.

Maintenance:
Training Institutes like WALAMTARI need to keep its premises in a clean manner for

a better learning environment. Dr Marri Chenna Reddy Human Resource Development of


Andhra Pradesh is an example to be followed. Many services like house keeping, maintenance,
etc., are outsourced to professional agencies for quality work. Results from such initiative
have been good.
Presently, support services in WALAMTARI are carried out by available staff and there
is a lot to be desired in terms of the quality of work. Therefore, it is proposed to outsource
the services like house keeping, maintenance, land scaping etc and therefore, budget
provision made.

4. Trainings:
In the annual budget of WALAMTARI, provision is made only for salaries and other
services. There is no specific provision for trainings.
Presently, training activities are being carried out as and when a client is sponsoring
courses. This resulting in sporadic activities and as such there is no scope for faculty of
WALAMTARI to initiate any new Research or Training.
In view of the above, it is proposed that a small amount of budget be provided exclusively
for Research and Training, the main purpose for which WALAMTARI exists. This gives much
needed flexibility to WALAMTARI to take up need based Research and training programmes
from time to time.

PHASE - I :
The National Hydrology Project is a World Bank funded project, implemented in 9
States viz. Andhra Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Gujarat, Kerala, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh,
Maharashtra, Orissa and Tamilnadu and 5 Central agencies viz., Central Water Commssion,
Central Ground Water Board, National Institute of Hydrology, Central Water and Power
Research Station and India Meteorological Department.
The Hydrology Project in Andhra Pradesh comprises both Surface Water and Ground
Water components. The Project cost of Surface Water Component Works is Rs. 21.03 Crores.
The date of Loan agreement is 22-09-1995 with the Project period six years and subsequently
extended up to 31-12-2003 and the World Bank Credit is closed by 31-12-2003.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES:
The main objectives are to develop Hydrological Information System (HIS) and to improve
the institutional and organisational arrangements, technical capabilities and physical facilities
available for measurement, validation, collection, analysis, transfer and dissemination of
Hydrological, Hydrometeorological and Water Quality data for basic water resources evaluation
and to develop the valid, comprehensive, interactive, easily accessible and user friendly data
bases to support major aspects of India's National Water Policy.

HYDROLOGICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM (HIS):


Hydrological Information System comprises Physical infrastructure and human
resources to collect, process, store and disseminate data on hydrological, hydro
meteorological and water quality variables. The physical infrastructure includes observation
networks, laboratories, data communication systems, data storage and processing centers
equipped with data bases. The human resoruces refer to well trained staff with variety of skills
to perform the above activities.

Under the above project two pilot projects are undertaken by the Department with an
estimated cost of RS.14.93 Crores with the project period of 6 years

[1]

Baseline studies are taken up in two pilot areas:


User Centered Aquifer Level Groundwater Management Pilot
The main objectives:

a.

Community driven and implemented pilot to develop and test groundwater management
approaches in a pilot aquifer representing different groundwater utilization situations.

b.

Information Education and Communication (IEC) campaign to create awareness of


emerging problems and generate support from all stakeholders for groundwater
management options to solve the identified problems.

c.

Strengthening of GWD to develop scientific data base and enhance their analytical skills
and technical capabilities essential to monitor groundwater conditions and understand
the viability of various potential management options.

d.

Take up activities that would provide insight to key issues of groundwater management,
options for legal framework and supporting regulations as an initiative for sustainable
groundwater management.
Under the pilot project, Chandur ( West) sub basin of lower Krishna river basin of

Nalgonda district is selected where groundwater extraction is high and water table is
progressively declining.

[2]

Conjunctive use of surface and groundwater pilot:

The main objectives:


i.

Irrigation system is not able to supply required quantity of canal water at required time to
service the designed command area and maintain the irrigation schedule.

ii.

During the years when the storage in the reservoir had depleted due to low rainfall, it is
difficult to supply adequate canal water to meet irrigation demand.

iii.

In case of multipurpose projects, supply of canal to irrigation use is reduced due to


increase in the demand by other competitive uses

iv.

For mitigating the potential problem of water logging and salinity due to excessive use
of surface water for irrigation

v.

Increase the efficiency of the irrigation system

Under this pilot project the following areas are selected:


i.

Chejerla sub basin under Addanki branch of Inumella major canal of Nagarjuna Sagar
Right bank Canal command in Guntur district.

5. WEST GODAVARI DISTRICT

The District has a population of 39.35 lakhs (census 2011) with 46 mandals in this District.
The District can be divided into three natural regions (i.e.) delta, upland and agency areas.
Godavari is the important river flowing in this district. The other minor rivers which feed the irrigation tanks in the upland areas are Thammileru, Yerrakalava, Byneru, Kovvadacalva, Jalleru and
Gunderu. The Kolleru lake is an extensive shallow depression created by a gradual rise in the
level of the country on either side by alluvial deposits from the Godavari and Krishna canals. This
lake receives a large volume of drainage water of the surrounding deltaic area and has an outlet
to the sea through Upputeru.

1. National Water Policy

1. Need for a National Water Policy


1.1

Water is a prime natural resource, a basic human need and a precious national
asset. Planning, development and management of water resources need to be
governed by national perspectives.

1.2

As per the latest assessment (1993), out of the total precipitation, including snowfall,
of around 4,000 billion cubic metre in the country, the availability from surface
water and replenishable ground water is put at 1,869 billion cubic metre. Because
of topographical and other constraints about 60% of this i.e., 690 billion cubic metre
from surface water and 432 billion cubic metre from ground water can be put to
beneficial use. Availability of water is highly uneven in both space and time.
Precipitation is confined to only about three or four months in a year and varies
from 100 milimetres in the western parts of Rajasthan to over 10,000 milimetres at
Cherrapunji in Meghalaya. Rivers and under ground aquifers often cut across
state boundaries. Water, as a resource is one and indivisible; rainfall, river waters,
surface ponds and lakes and ground water are all part of one system.

1.3

Water is part of a larger ecological system. Realising the importance and scarcity
attached to the fresh water, it has to be treated as an essential environment for
sustaining all life forms.

1.4

Water is a scare and precious national resource to be planned, developed,


conserved and managed as such and on an integrated and environmentally sound
basis, keeping in view the socio-economic aspects and needs of the States. It is
one of the most crucial elements in developmental planning. As the country has
entered the 21st century, efforts to develope, conserve, utilise and manage this
important resource in a sustainable manner, have to be guided by the national
perspective.

1.5

Floods and droughts affect vast areas of the country, transcending state boundaries.
One-sixth area of the country is drought-prone. Out of 40 million hectare of the
flood prone area in the country, on an average, floods affect an area of around 7.5
million hectare per year. Approach to management of droughts and floods has to
be co-ordinated and guided at the national level.

I & CAD Department

423

Polices of Central and State Governments

Annual Report - 2010-11

1.6

Planning and implementation of water resources projects involve a number of socioeconomic aspects and issues such as environmental sustainability, appropriate
resettlement and rehabilitation of project affected people and livestock, public health
concerns of water impoundment, dam safety etc., Common approaches and
guidelines are necessary on these matters. Moreover, certain problems and
weaknesses have affected a large number of water resources projects all over the
country. There have been substantial time and cost overruns on projects. Problems
of water logging and soil salinity have emerged in some irrigation commands, leading
to the degradation of agricultural land. Complex issues of equity and social justice
in regard to water distribution are required to be addressed. The development and
over-exploitation of ground water resources in certain parts of the country have
raised the concern and need for judicious and scientific resource management
and conservation. All these concerns need to be addressed on the basis of common
policies and strategies.

1.7

Growth process and the expansion of economic activities inevitably lead to


increasing demand of water for diverse purposes: domestic, industrial, agricultural,
hydro-power, thermal-power, navigation, recreation, etc. So far, the major
consumptive use of water has been for irrigation. While the gross irrigation potential
is estimated to have increased from 19.5 million hectare at the time of independence
to about 95 million hectare by the end of the Year 1999-2000, further development
of a substantial order is necessary, if the food and fibre needs of our growing
population are to be met with. The countrys population which is over 1,027 million
(2001 AD) at present is expected to reach a level of around 1,390 million by 2025
AD.

1.8

Production of food grains has increased from around 50 million tonnes in the fifties
to about 208 million tonnes in the Year 1999-2000. This will have to be raised to
around 350 million tonnes by the year 2025 AD. The drinking water needs of people
and livestock have also to be met. Domestic and industrial water needs have
largely been concentrated in or near major cities. However, the demand in rural
areas is expected to increase sharply as the development programmes improve
economic conditions of the rural masses. Demand for water for hydro and thermal
power generation and for other industrial uses is also increasing substantially. As
a result water, which is already a scarce resource, will become even scarcer in
future. This underscores the need for the utmost efficiency in water utilisation and
a public awareness of the importance of its conservation.

1.9

Another important aspect is water quality. Improvements in existing strategies,


innovation of new techniques resting on a strong science and technology base are
needed to eliminate the pollution of surface and ground water resources, to improve
water quality. Science & technology and training have to play important roles in
water resources development and management in general.

424

I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11

1.10

Polices of Central and State Governments

National Water Policy was adopted in September, 1987. Since then, a number of
issues and challenges have emerged in the development and management of the
water resources. Therefore, the National Water Policy (1987) has been reviewed
and updated.

2. Information System
2.1

A well developed information system, for water related data in it's entirety, at the
national/state level, is a prime requisite for resource planning. A standardised
national information system should be established with a network of data banks
and data bases, intergrating and strengthening the existing Central and State level
agencies and improving the quality of data and the processing capabilities.

2.2

Standards for coding, classification, processing of data and methods/procedures


for its collection should be adopted. Advances in information technology must be
introduced to create a modern information system promoting free exchange of
data among various agencies. Special efforts should be made to develope and
continuously upgrade technological capability to collect, process and disseminate
reliable data in the desired time frame.

2.3

Apart from the data regarding water availability and actual water use, the system
should also include comprehensive and reliable projections of future demands of
water for diverse purposes.

3. Water Resources Planning


3.1

Water resources available to the country should be brought within the category of
utilisable resources to the maximum possible extent.

3.2

Non-conventional methods for utilisation of water such as through inter-basin


transfers, artificial recharge of ground water and desalination of brakish or sea
water as well as traditional water conservation practices like rainwater harvesting,
including roof-top rainwater harvesting, need to be practiced to further increase the
utilisable water resources. Promotion of frontier research and development in a
focused manner for these techniques is necessary.

3.3

Water resources development and management will have to be planned for a


hydrological unit such as drainage basin as a whole or for a sub-basin, multisectorally taking into account surface and ground water for sustainable use
incorporating quantity and quality aspects as well as environmental considerations.
All individual developmental projects and proposals should be formulated and
considered within the framework of such an overall plan keeping in view the existing
agreements/awards for a basin or a sub-basin so that the best possible combination
of options can be selected and sustained.

Annual Report - 2010-11

3.4

Watershed management through extensive soil conservation, catchment-area


treatment, preservation of forests and increasing the forest cover and the
construction of check-dams should be promoted. Efforts shall be to conserve the
water in the catchment.

3.5

Water should be made available to water short areas by transfer from other areas
including transfers from one river basin to another, based on a national perspective,
after taking into account the requirements of the areas/basins.

4. Institutional Mechanism
4.1

With a view to give effect to the planning, development and management of the
water resources on a hydrological unit basis, alongwith a multi-sectoral, multidisciplinary and participatory approach as well as integrating quality, quantity and
the environmental aspects, the existing institutions at various levels under the water
resources sector will have to be appropriately reoriented/reorganised and even
created, wherever necessary. As maintenance of water resource schemes is
under non-plan budget, it is generally being neglected. The institutional
arrangements should be such that this vital aspect is given importance equal or
even more than that of new constructions.

4.2

Appropriate river basin organisations should be established for the planned


development and management of a river basin as a whole or sub-basins, wherever
necessary. Special multi-disciplinary units should be set up to prepare
comprehensive plans taking into account not only the needs of irrigation but also
harmonising various other water uses, so that the available water resources are
determined and put to optimum use having regard to existing agreements or awards
of Tribunals under the relevant laws. The scope and powers of the river basin
organisations shall be decided by the basin states themselves.

5. Water Allocation Priorities


In the planning and operation of systems, water allocation priorities should be broadly
as follows:
1

Drinking water

Irrigation

Hydro-power

Ecology

Agro-industries and non-agricultural industries

Navigation and other uses

However, the priorities could be modified or added if warranted by the area/region


specific considerations.

6. Project Planning
6.1

Water resource development projects should as far as possible be planned and


developed as multipurpose projects. Provision for drinking water should be a
primary consideration.

6.2

The study of the likely impact of a project during construction and later on human
lives, settlements, occupations, socio-economic, environment and other aspects
shall form an essential component of project planning.

6.3

In the planning, implementation and operation of a project, the preservation of the


quality of environment and the ecological balance should be a primary consideration.
The adverse impact on the environment, if any should be minimised and should be
offset by adequate compensatory measures. The project should nevertheless be
sustainable.

6.4

There should be an integrated and multi-disciplinary approach to the planning,


formulation, clearance and implementation of projects, including catchment area
treatment and management, environmental and ecological aspects, the rehabilitation
of affected people and command area development. The planning of projects in
hilly areas should take into account the need to provide assured drinking water,
possibilities of hydro-power development and the proper approach to irrigation in
such areas, in the context of physical features and constraints of the basin such
as steep slopes, rapid run-off and the incidence of soil erosion. The economic
evaluation of projects in such areas should also take these factors into account.

6.5

Special efforts should be made to investigate and formulate projects either in, or
for the benefit of areas inhabited by tribals or other specially disadvantaged groups
such as socially weak, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes. In other areas
also, project planning should pay special attention to the needs of scheduled castes
and scheduled tribes and other weaker sections of the society.
The
economic evaluation of projects benefiting such disadvantaged sections should
also take these factors into account.

6.6

The drainage system should form an integral part of any irrigation project right from
the planning stage.

6.7

Time and cost overruns and deficient realisation of benefits characterising most
water related projects should be overcome by upgrading the quality of project
preparation and management. The inadequate funding of projects should be
obviated by an optimal allocation of resources on the basis of prioritisation, having
regard to the early completion of on-going projects as well as the need to reduce
regional imbalances.

6.8

The involvement and participation of beneficiaries and other stakeholders should


be encouraged right from the project planning stage itself.

I & CAD Department

427

Annual Report - 2010-11

7. Ground Water Development


7.1

There should be a periodical reassessment of the ground water potential on a


scientific basis, taking into consideration the quality of the water available and
economic viability of its extraction.

7.2

Exploitation of ground water resources should be so regulated as not to exceed


the recharging possibilities, as also to ensure social equity. The detrimental
environmental consequences of over-exploitation of ground water need to be
effectively prevented by the Central and State Governments. Ground water recharge
projects should be developed and implemented for improving both the quality and
availability of ground water resource.

7.3

Integrated and co-ordinated development of surface water and ground water


resources and their conjunctive use, should be envisaged right from the project
planning stage and should form an integral part of the project implementation.

7.4

Over exploitation of ground water should be avoided especially near the coast to
prevent ingress of seawater into sweet water aquifers.

8. Drinking Water
Adequate safe drinking water facilities should be provided to the entire population
both in urban and in rural areas. Irrigation and multipurpose projects should invariably
include a drinking water component, wherever there is no alternative source of
drinking water. Drinking water needs of human beings and animals should be the
first charge on any available water.
9. Irrigation
9.1

Irrigation planning either in an individual project or in a basin as a whole should take


into account the irrigability of land, cost-effective irrigation options possible from all
available sources of water and appropriate irrigation techniques for optimising water
use efficiency. Irrigation intensity should be such as to extend the benefits of irrigation
to as large a number of farm families as possible, keeping in view the need to
maximise production.

9.2

There should be a close integration of water-use and land-use policies.

9.3

Water allocation in an irrigation system should be done with due regard to equity
and social justice. Disparities in the availability of water between head-reach and
tail-end farms and between large and small farms should be obviated by adoption
of a rotational water distribution system and supply of water on a volumetric basis
subject to certain ceilings and rational priceing.

9.4

Concerted efforts should be made to ensure that the irrigation potential created is
fully utilised. For this purpose, the command area development approach should
be adopted in all irrigation projects.

428

I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11

Polices of Central and State Governments

9.5

Irrigation being the largest consumer of fresh water, the aim should be to get optimal
productivity per unit of water. Scientific water management, farm practices and
sprinkler and drip systems of irrigation should be adopted wherever feasible.

9.6

Reclamation of water logged/saline affected land by scientific and cost-effective


methods should form a part of command area development programme.

10. Resettlement and Rehabilitation


Optimal use of water resources necessitates construction of storages and the
consequent resettlement and rehabilitation of population. A skeletal national policy
in this regard needs to be formulated so that the project affected persons share the
benefits through proper rehabilitation. States should accordingly evolve their own
detailed resettlement and rehabilitation policies for the sector, taking into account
the local conditions. Careful planning is necessary to ensure that the construction
and rehabilitation activities proceed simultaneously and smoothly.
11. Financial and Physical Sustainability
Besides creating additional water resources facilities for various uses, adequate
emphasis needs to be given to the physical and financial sustainability of existing
facilities. There is therefore, a need to ensure that the water charges for various
uses should be fixed in such a way that they cover at least the operation and
maintenance charges of providing the service initially and a part of the capital costs
subsequently. These rates should be linked directly to the quality of service provided.
The subsidy on water rates to the disadvantaged and poorer sections of the society
should be well targeted and transparent.
12. Participatory Approach to Water Resources Management
Management of the water resources for diverse uses should incorporate a
participatory approach; by involving not only the various governmental agencies
but also the users and other stakeholders, in an effective and decisive manner, in
various aspects of planning, design, development and management of the water
resources schemes. Necessary legal and institutional changes should be made
at various levels for the purpose, duly ensuring appropriate role for women. Water
Users Associations and the local bodies such as muncipalities and gram
panchayats should particularly be involved in the operation, maintenance and
management of water infrastructures/facilities at appropriate levels progressively,
with a view to eventually transfer the management of such facilities to the user
groups/local bodies.
I & CAD Department

429

Polices of Central and State Governments

Annual Report - 2010-11

13. Private Sector Participation


Private sector participation should be encouraged in planning, development and
management of water resources projects for diverse uses, wherever feasible.
Private sector participation may help in introducing innovative ideas, generating
financial resources and introducing corporate management and improving service
efficiency and accountability to users. Depending upon the specific situations,
various combinations of private sector participation, in building, owning, operating,
leasing and transferring of water resources facilities, may be considered.
14. Water Quality
14.1

Both surface water and ground water should be regularly monitored for quality. A
phased programme should be undertaken for improvements in water quality.

14.2

Effluents should be treated to acceptable levels and standards before discharging


them into natural streams.

14.3

Minimum flow should be ensured in the perennial streams for maintaining ecology
and social considerations.

14.4

Principle of polluter pays should be followed in management of polluted water.

14.5

Necessary legislation is to be made for preservation of existing water bodies by


preventing encroachments and deterioration of water quality.

15. Water Zoning


Economic development and activities including agricultural, industrial and urban
development, should be planned with due regard to the constraints imposed by the
configuration of water availability. There should be a water zoning of the country
and the economic activities should be guided and regulated in accordance with
such zoning.
16. Conservation of Water
16.1

Efficiency of utilisation in all the diverse uses of water should be optimised and an
awareness of water as a scarce resource should be fostered. Conservation,
consciousness should be promoted through education, regulation, incentives and
disincentives.

16.2

The resources should be conserved and the availability augmented by maximising


retention, eliminating pollution and minimising losses. For this, measures like
selective linings in the conveyance system, modernisation and rehabilitation of
existing systems including tanks, recycling and re-use of treated effluents and
adoption of traditional techniques like mulching or pitcher irrigation and new
techniques like drip and sprinkler may be promoted, wherever feasible.

430

I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11

Polices of Central and State Governments

17. Flood Control and Management


17.1

There should be a master plan for flood control and management for each flood
prone basin.

17.2

Adequate flood-cushion should be provided in water storage projects, wherever


feasible, to facilitate better flood management. In highly flood prone areas, flood
control should be given overriding consideration in reservoir regulation policy even
at the cost of sacrificing some irrigation or power benefits.

17.3

While physical flood protection works like embankments and dykes will continue to
be necessary increased emphasis should be laid on non-structural measures such
as flood forecasting and warning, flood plain zoning and flood proofing for the
minimisation of losses and to reduce the recurring expenditure on flood relief.

17.4

There should be strict regulation of settlement and economic activity in the flood
plain zones along with flood proofing, to minimise the loss of life and property on
account of floods.

17.5

The flood forecasting activities should be modernised, value added and extended
to other uncovered areas. Inflow forecasting to reservoirs should be instituted for
their effective regulation.

18. Land Erosion by Sea or River


18.1

The erosion of land, whether by the sea in coastal areas or by river waters inland,
should be minimised by suitable cost-effective measures. The States and Union
Territories should also undertake all requisite steps to ensure that indiscriminate
occupation and exploitation of coastal strips of land are discouraged and that the
location of economic activities in areas adjacent to the sea is regulated.

18.2

Each coastal State should prepare a comprehensive coastal land management


plan, keeping in view the environmental and ecological impacts, and regulate the
developmental activities accordingly.

19. Drought-prone Area Development


19.1

Drought-prone areas should be made less vulnerable to drought-associated


problems through soil-moisture conservation measures, water harvesting practices,
minimisation of evaporation losses, development of the ground water potential
including recharging and the tranfer of surface water from surplus areas where
feasible and appropriate. Pastures, forestry or other modes of development which
are relatively less water demanding should be encouraged. In planning water
resource development projects, the needs of drought-prone areas should be given
priority.

I & CAD Department

431

Polices of Central and State Governments

19.2

Annual Report - 2010-11

Relief works undertaken for providing employment to drought-stricken population


should preferably be for drought proofing.

20. Monitoring of Projects


20.1

A close monitoring of projects to identify bottlenecks and to adopt timely measures


to obviate time and cost overrun should form part of project planning and execution.

20.2

There should be a system to monitor and evaluate the performance and socioeconomic impact of the project.

21. Water Sharing/Distribution amongst the States


21.1

The water sharing/distribution amongst the states should be guided by a national


perspective with due regard to water resources availability and needs within the
river basin. Necessary guidelines, including for water short states even outside
the basin, need to be evolved for facilitating future agreements amongst the basin
states.

21.2

The Inter-State Water Disputes Act of 1956 may be suitably reviewed and amended
for timely adjudication of water disputes referred to the Tribunal.

22. Performance Improvement


There is an urgent need of paradigm shift in the emphasis in the management of
water resources sector. From the present emphasis on the creation and expansion
of water resources infrastructures for diverse uses, there is now a need to give
greater emphasis on the improvement of the performance of the existing water
resources facilities. Therefore, allocation of funds under the water resources sector
should be re-prioritised to ensure that the needs for development as well as operation
and maintenance of the facilities are met.
23. Maintenance and Modernisation
23.1

Structures and systems created through massive investments should be properly


maintained in good health. Appropriate annual provisions should be made for this
purpose in the budgets.

23.2

There should be a regular monitoring of structures and systems and necessary


rehabilitation and modernisation programmes should be undertaken.

23.3

Formation of Water Users Association with authority and responsibility should be


encouraged to facilitate the management including maintenance of irrigation system
in a time bound manner.

24. Safety of Structures


There should be proper organisational arrangements at the national and state levels
for ensuring the safety of storage dams and other water related structures consisting
of specialists in investigation, design, construction, hydrology, geology etc. A dam
safety legislation may be enacted to ensure proper inspection, maintenance and
432

I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11

Polices of Central and State Governments

surveillance of existing dams and also to ensure proper planning investigation,


design and construction for safety of new dams. The Guidelines on the subject
should be periodically updated and reformulated. There should be a system of
continuous surveillance and regular visits by experts.
25. Science and Technology
For effective and economical management of our water resources, the frontiers of
knowledge need to be pushed forward in several directions by intensifying research
efforts in various areas, including the following.
*

Hydrometeorology

Snow and lake hydrology

Surface and ground water hydrology

River morphology and hydraulics

Assessment of water resources

Water harvesting and ground water recharge

26. Training
A perspective plan for standardised training should be an integral part of water
resource development. It should cover training in information systems, sectoral
planning, project planning and formulation, project management, operation of
projects and their physical structures and systems and the management of the
water distribution systems. The training should extend to all the categories of
personnel involved in these activities as also the farmers.
27. Conclusion
In view of the vital importance of water for human and animal life, for maintaining
ecological balance and for economic and developmental activities of all kinds, and
considering its increasing scarcity, the planning and management of this resource,
and its optimal, economical and equitable use has become a matter of the utmost
urgency. Concerns of the community needs to be taken into account for water
resources, development and management. The success of the National Water
Policy will depend entirely on evolving and maintaining a national consensus and
commitment to its underlying principles and objectives. To achieve the desired
objectives, State Water Policy backed with an operational action plan shall be
formulated in a time bound manner say, in two years. National Water Policy may
be revised periodically as and when need arises.

2. Andhra Pradesh State Water Policy

1.

Need for the State Water Policy


1.1

Water security is intimately tied with food security, livelihood, health, environment,
economic development and overall well-being of the society. Water is a finite
resource and managing water in days of rapid socio-economic growth and
change is challenging. The water challenges for the state are therefore,
manifold improving and safeguarding the existing drinking water supplies,
managing water for irrigation, industry, power supply and environmental and
prevention of pollution.

1.2

The total water resources (surface water and groundwater) of Andhra Pradesh
are estimated to be about 108 BCM (about 78 BCM from surface water, primarily
from the Godavari and Krishna rivers), of which nearly 65 BCM are currently
utilized (0.6 BCM for drinking, 64 BCM for irrigation, 0.3 BCM for industry and
0.3 BCM for power generation). Most of the water (about 98%) is currently
supplied for irrigation, although other needs are expected to grow in the future.
The current trends of increase in water supply from all users will outstrip available
supplies significantly by 2025.

1.3

In addition, there are a number of challenges related to the development of


new infrastructure, maintenance and operation of existing infrastructure, and
increasing threats to the resource base from pollution, over-abstraction and
unplanned development that exacerbate existing climate risks such as droughts
and floods.

1.4

Water logging, salinization and increased levels of toxic elements in water are
serious concerned for the agriculture sector. The water sector planning &
management also have opportunity costs of action or inaction. A lasting solution
has to come from ushering in major reforms, financial and institutional, to ensure
that system is put on a sustainable track.

I & CAD Department

435

Polices of Central and State Governments

Annual Report - 2010-11

1.5

Groundwater development has played a crucial role, in meeting the rising


demands for water resulting from the onset of the green revolution, as well as
drinking water & droughts. Nevertheless, groundwater exploitation has major
drawbacks and limitations.

1.6

The Inter-Ministerial Task group established for mid-term appraisal of the


10th Plan made recommendation to the states to have water policies that work
towards the efficient use of water resource. The Government of A.P. have
enacted two legislations viz., Andhra Pradesh Water, Land and Tree Act 2002
for regulating water use and Andhra Pradesh Farmers Management of Irrigation
System Act 1997 to make community as partners in water and irrigation system
management.

1.7

The Government of A.P has already initiated a massive program of creation of


irrigation infrastructure for augmenting the food production and livelihood
security. The Government is committed to

(a)

Provide hygienic, affordable and secure drinking water supplies to the entire
population

(b)

Improve the performance and financial viability of irrigation systems

(c)

Make groundwater use sustainable in economic and environmental terms and

(d)

Make systematic transition from the water resource development mode to an


integrated water resource management mode, with appropriate reforms in
water sector through a water policy.

1.8

The policy in a dynamic sector with rapid changes cannot remain a static
statement and will be subjected to regular reviews and changes.
The State Water Policy focuses on key areas of water management, which
include:

1.9

Building an enabling environment


1.

Implementing a range of institutional tools, including local capacity building


and participatory approaches.

2.

Integrating new management tools and systems such as the integrated data
systems, water demand management and a new communication system.

1.10

436

First, Water demand and utilization is multi sectoral and governed at various
levels. Adverse impacts of rapid population and industrial growth, unsustainable
exploitation of water resources consequent to haphazard urbanization and
unchecked pollution are some of the issues to be addressed adequately and
substantially to meet the challenges of the water sector.
I & CAD Department

Annual Report - 2010-11

1.11

Polices of Central and State Governments

Secondly, vulnerability of the drought prone areas in the State should be reduced
to safeguard against drought associated problems through soil moisture
conservation measures, water harvesting practices, minimization of evaporation
losses and the sustainable development of the ground water potential. This
would also entail the need to improve management of the basic natural
resources of the State such as land, water and forests through improved land
management, water harvesting, soil moisture conservation and dry land farming
practices, as considerable areas will continue to rely on rainfed agriculture.

1.12

Thirdly, there is need to plan for flood control and management. Physical flood
protection works like embankments and dykes, extensive soil conservation in
the catchments, preservation of forest and increase in forest coverage, adequate
flood cushioning in water storage projects, wherever feasible to facilitate better
flood management and an extensive network for flood forecasting to establish
a system of timely warning to the settlements in the flood plains, along with the
regulation of settlements and economic activity in the flood plain zones would
be required to be adequately continued to be supported or initiated to minimize
the loss of life and property on account of floods.

1.13

Finally, the prime requisite for effective water resource planning is a well
developed decision support system linked to a dynamic database of water
resources comprising of demand and utilization pattern in the State. Existing
distributed database required to be networked while improving the quality of
data collection, processing and analysis.

1.14

Therefore guiding principles of water management need to be coherent across


the various sectors and institutions through statement of intent of
Government as a state water policy specifically to address the future increases
in demand and recognizing the present inadequacies and gaps in water
management. The water policy is in consonance of the National Water Policy
and would be a dynamic document to keep on evolving to address the new
challenges effectively and adequately.

2.0

Water Resources Planning


3.2.1

Water resources planning for development and management of water resources


projects in the state would be done, as far as possible, for multi-purpose uses.
The provision for drinking water would be the primary consideration.

3.2.2

Planning water resources projects involve a number of socio economic and


environmental sustainability aspects, appropriate resettlement and rehabilitation
of project-affected people and livestock, public health concerns, dam safety
and other technical issues, which need to be conceived in a holistic context.

Water Resources Development


3.3.1

The State recognizes the need to develop its water resources on priority to
ensure water and food security and to promote and sustain overall growth.

3.3.2

Resettlement and Rehabilitation aspects: Optimal use of water resources,


including for storage and irrigation systems development can involve
resettlement and/or rehabilitation of the population. This is to be done in a
planned and systematic manner to ensure that project affected persons are
compensated and that construction and rehabilitation activities proceed
smoothly. This should be consistent with the Andhra Pradesh State R&R Policy,
2005 and the National Policy for R&R, 2007. Cultural assets should also be
adequately protected in project development.

3.3.3

Environmental aspects: The development of projects should take into account


environmental aspects, including catchment area treatment and management,
mitigation of environmental and ecological impacts, and groundwater and
surface water sustainability. Effective screening procedures should be in place
to adequately factor environmental and social opportunities and concerns during
all stages of projects.

Water-resource Management

Operation and maintenance of water resources and irrigation infrastructure:


The State will ensure provisions for full operations and maintenance
requirements of water resources and irrigation infrastructure projects, through
an appropriate combination of rationalization of water charges and budgetary
subsidy support, to ensure that the quality of the service delivery is not allowed
to suffer for want of systems O&M needs.

3.4.4

Users participation of irrigation system management: The state has already


enacted an enabling legislation, namely, APFMIS Act, 1997 (amended in 2002),
to provide a legal frame work for the formation of legally empowered
Water Users Associations (WUAs) at various levels of the irrigation systems
and to promote their involvement in the irrigation system management. The
state would continue to promote and further strengthen these WUAs to ensure
their meaningful and effective involvement in a given irrigation command and
that the quality of irrigation service deliveries are maintained and sustained.

3.4.5

Asset management: Project level asset management will be ensured through


the creation and updating of asset inventories, functional specifications, and
asset management frameworks.

3.4.6

Promoting Modern Management Practices: Modern management practices


will be ensured in the development of appropriate information, analysis and
communication systems and soliciting feedback from service delivery clients
to improve performance. Appropriate benchmarking and auditing systems
should be developed to monitor and improve service delivery efficiency through
the use of modern management instruments. Particular attention will be paid
to professional development of staff to effectively use modern technical and
management practices.

3.4.7

Environmental aspects: In the operation of water resources infrastructure,


appropriate measures will be taken to ensure adequate provision of water to
maintain ecosystem services and manage water quality in sensitive stretches.
Adequate measures should be taken to address the substantial waterlogged
areas that are present in many irrigation commands as well as to regulate
over-abstraction of groundwater.

3.5

Special Focus areas


3.5.1

Use of Appropriate Modern Technology in Water Resources Development and


Management: The State would ensure that appropriate modern technology is
utilized in the pursuit of the mandate of the water-related agencies. This includes
the deployment of modern computer hardware and software, development of a

modern knowledge base (using GIS, Remote Sensing, and MIS tools), interactive
decision support systems and other analytical tools, modern data and voice
communication systems, improved use of the internet, improved information
flow arrangements, effective targeted research and knowledge partnerships.
These should be targeted to improve water-related agencies to improve
performance, reduce overall costs and reduce redundancies.
3.5.2

Urban and Rural Water Supply: Priority will be made to move towards 24x7
safe water supply in adequate amounts to meet the growing needs in urban
and rural areas for domestic and industrial use. Drinking water and sanitation
will be accorded high priority in water resources development, allocation and
management with adequate resilience to climate risks.

3.5.3

Water Quality and Ecological aspects: There should be due consideration to


maintain and enhance the environmental functions of the States water
resources. Adequate measures must be taken to ensure the prevention of
pollution of the States surface and ground waters, water bodies and coastal
zones. Efforts should be undertaken to control point and nonpoint source
pollution from industrial, domestic, agricultural and other sources that pose
that threat to public health and ecosystems. Integrated Pest Management and
Integrated Nutrient Management practices and organic farming should be
encouraged where appropriate to ensure sustainable agricultural practices are
undertaken without compromising public and ecosystem health.

3.5.4

Conservation of Water: Efforts should be taken to ensure effective water


conservation, including promotion of demandside management, reducing losses
in evaporation, conveyance and distribution and promotion of water saving
technologies and practices. As agriculture represents the major user of water
in Andhra Pradesh, special attention should be given to agricultural water
conservation, including promotion of drip/sprinkler systems, SRI, cropping
pattern changes to less water-intensive crops, etc., as appropriate.

3.5.5

Flood Management: Effective steps will be taken for flood management using
an appropriate combination of nonstructural and structural measures.
This includes provision of appropriate flood cushion in water storage
infrastructure, flood risk identification, zoning, and regulation, modern flood
forecasting and communications systems and flood preparedness planning in
vulnerable communities.

3.5.6

Drought Management: The State is highly vulnerable to droughts. The risks of


drought will be better managed through improved forecasting and
communication, drought preparedness planning, appropriate watershed

management and water harvesting, improved consideration of management


instruments such as insurance and diversification of livelihoods to improve
climate resilience.

4.0

3.5.7

Land Erosion Management: Land degradation issues adversely impact water


quality and productivity. There is a need to improve land erosion management
both for local livelihood improvement as well as natural resource management
benefits. In addition, coastal erosion needs to be managed with appropriate
measures to protect coastal zone assets.

3.5.8

Safety of Water Infrastructure: Appropriate measures based on periodic


inspection should be taken to ensure the safety of the water assets created.
In particular, dam safety will be adequately monitored and enhanced in dams
of all sizes. The recommendations of the State Dam Safety Panels should be
fully funded and implemented.

Governance and Institutional Arrangements


4.1

Institutional and Legal Aspects The State recognizes the need to have
appropriate regulatory institutional and legal framework in the water sector,
and also of restructuring and capacity building of the existing institutions in the
water sector in the state, and to achieve the above needs, the state would take
the following actions.

4.1.1

Establishment of Regulatory Institutions in the Water Sector: An Andhra Pradesh


Water Resources Regulatory Commission (APWRRC) will be established,
under a state legislation to provide the regulatory institutional frame work at the
state level.

4.1.2

Strengthening of Water User Organizations: Water User Associations will be


strengthened to assume greater responsibility in the management of water
and irrigation infrastructure.

4.1.3

Restructuring and capacity-building of the existing I&CAD Department and other


Water Sector Institutions: The existing Irrigation and Command Area
Development Department and other water sector institutions (including
WALAMTARI) would be suitably restructured to ensure effective water resources
stewardship and effective service delivery. Appropriate legal and administration
actions should be taken to build their capacity, and encourage a shared-vision
approach to help them achieve mandates.

5.0

Implementation of the Policy


The Mid Term Appraisal of Tenth Plan has made certain recommendation for respective
states to have water policy and work on the recommendation of the Inter Ministerial

further formed subgroups of National Development Council as part of the planning


process for the 11th Five Year Plan. The subgroup on Agriculture and Irrigation has
made certain recommendations on various issues concerning water use efficiency,
related institutional restructuring, realization of the potential of water among others. The
implementation of the Andhra Pradesh Water Resources Policy will broadly coincide
with the 11th Five Year Plan (2007-12). The Government of Andhra Pradesh will formulate
programmes and projects based on the provisions of the Policy to incorporate the
recommendations during the implementation of the 11th Plan. Towards this the
Government of Andhra Pradesh will notify the schedule for implementation of the following
provisions of the Policy.

Commission

5.2

State Water Policy Review


The state water policy would be a dynamic policy document and would be periodically
reviewed, as and when needed, to meet the future water sector development and
management challenges.

6.0

Conclusion
Water is critical for Andhra Pradesh. The gulf between water supply and demand is
rapidly growing due to the ever-increasing demand for water and its limited supply. The
State Government has launched several innovative initiatives to augment water supply
through conservation and peoples participation. Huge infrastructure support has been
provided for irrigation and power, in order to benefit the agriculture sector.
A mass awareness programme supplemented by appropriate technologies, policies,
institutional arrangements and stakeholders participation would increase water
productivity, accelerate economic growth and assure safe and secure water in the present
and in future. This would require an integrated approach at different levels in the
Government and in the various regions. Micro-level water development, need-based
priorities and planning will go a long way in enhancing water supply in a sustainable
manner.
Andhra Pradesh Water Policy is only a starting point. The challenge for the administration
and the people is to build a secure water future for Andhra Pradesh. The water policy

444

Annual Report - 2010-11

Polices of Central and State Governments

aims to improve overall water productivity by removing constraints and providing


institutional mechanisms Water Policy suggests that effectiveness of the policy will be
achieved through sectoral and cross-sectoral co-ordination and collaboration.
The provisions of present policy would be implemented following step-by-step approach
with existing policy law and organisation. Mid term review of the process would enable
the implementation of Policy and achievement of its objectives. However the challenge
remains!

3. National Policy on
Resettlement and
Rehabilitation

[The Government of India, Ministry of Rural Development


(Grameen Vikas Mantralaya). Department of Land Resources
(Bhumi Sansadhan Vibhag), has formulated a National Policy on
Resettlement and Rehabilitation for Project affected Families vide its
resolution dated 17th February 04. The Government of India desires
that the contents of the said Policy be brought to the notice of the general
public and given widest publicity.]

Chapter - I
POLICY
1.

Preamble
1.1 Compulsory acquisition of land for public purpose including infrastructure projects
displaces people, forcing them to give up their home, assets and means of livelihood.
Apart from depriving them of their lands, livelihoods and resource-base, displacement
has other traumatic psychological and socio-cultural consequences.The Government
of India recognizes the need to minimize large scale displacement to the extent
possible and where displacement is inevitable, the need to handle with utmost care
and forethought issues relating to Resettlement and Rehabilitation of Project Affected
Families. Such an approach is especially necessary in respect of tribals, small &
marginal farmers and women.
1.2 The system of extending cash compensation does not, by itself, in most cases,
enable the affected families to obtain cultivable agricultural land, homestead and
other resources which they have to surrender to the State. The difficulties are more
acute for persons who are critically dependent on the acquired assets for their
subsistence/livelihoods, such as landless agricultural workers, forest dwellers,
tenants and artisans, as their distress and destitution is more severe and yet they
are not eligible for cash compensation.
1.3 Some States and Central Ministries/Departments have their own Policies and
Guidelines for Resettlement and Rehabilitation. However, a National Policy on
Resettlement and Rehabilitation of Project Affected Families (PAFs) has not so far
been enunciated. This document aims at laying down basic norms and packages

I & CAD Department

447

Polices of Central and State Governments

Annual Report - 2010-11

in the shape of a Policy which would, henceforth be referred to as the


National Policy on the Resettlement and Rehabilitation of Project Affected Families
2003 (NPRR-2003).
1.4 The Policy essentially addresses the need to provide succour to the asset less rural
poor, support the rehabilitation efforts of the resource poor sections namely small
and marginal farmers, SCs/STs and women who have been displaced. Besides, it
seeks to provide a broad canvas for an effective dialogue between the Project Affected
Families and the Administration for Resettlement & Rehabilitation. Such a dialogue
is expected to enable timely completion of projects with a sense of definiteness as
regards costs and adequate attention to the needs of the displaced persons especially
the resource poor sections. The intention it to impart greater flexibility for interaction
and negotiation so that, the resultant Package gains all-round acceptability in the
shape of a workable instrument providing satisfaction to all stakeholders/Requiring
Bodies.
1.5 The National Policy on the Resettlement and Rehabilitation of Project Affected
Families will be in the form of broad guidelines and executive instructions for guidelines
of all concerned and will be applicable to Projects displacing 500 families or more
enmasse in plain areas and 250 families enmasse in hilly areas, Desert Development
Programme (DDP) blocks, areas mentioned in Schedule V and Schedule VI of the
Constitution of India. It is expected that the appropriate Government and Administrator
for R&R shall implement this Policy in letter and spirit in order to ensure that the
benefits envisaged under the Policy reaches the Project Affected Families, especially
resource poor sections including SC's/ST's.
1.6 The rehabilitation grants and other monetary benefits proposed in the Policy would
be minimum and applicable to all project affected families whether belonging to
Below Poverty Line (BPL) or non-BPL families. States where R&R packages are
higher than proposed in the Policy are free to adopt their own packages.

4. Andhra Pradesh Policy on


Resettlement & Rehabilitation
(2005)

Objectives of Policy
To minimize displacement and to identify non-displacing or least-displacing alternatives;
To plan the resettlement and rehabilitation of Project Affected and Displaced Families, (PDFs/
PDFs) including special needs of Tribals and vulnerable sections;
To provide better standard of living to PDFs and PDFs;
To facilitate harmonious relationship between the Requiring Body and PDFs through mutual
cooperation.

CHAPTER - I:
POLICY
1.0 PREAMBLE:
1.1

Compulsory acquisition of land for public purpose including infrastructure projects


displaces people, forcing them to give up their home, assets and means of livelihood.
Apart from depriving them of their lands, livelihoods and resource-base, displacement
has other traumatic psychological and socio-cultural consequences. The Government
of Andhra Pradesh recognizes the need to minimize large-scale displacement to the
extent possible and, where displacement is inevitable, the need to handle with utmost
care, human touch and forethought, issues relating to Resettlement and Rehabilitation
of Project Affected Families. Such an approach is especially necessary in respect of
tribal, small & marginal farmers and women.

1.2

The system of extending cash compensation does not, by itself, in most cases, enable
the affected families to obtain cultivable agricultural land, homestead and other resources,
which they have to surrender to the State. The difficulties are more acute for persons
who are critically dependent on the acquired assets for their subsistence/ livelihoods,

I & CAD Department

463

Polices of Central and State Governments

Annual Report - 2010-11

such as landless agricultural workers, forest dwellers, tenants and artisans, as their
distress and destitution is more severe, and, yet they are not eligible for cash
compensation.
1.3

The Policy essentially addresses the need to provide succour to the asset less rural
poor, support the rehabilitation efforts of the resource poor sections, namely, small and
marginal farmers, SCs/STs and women who have been displaced. Besides, it seeks to
provide a broad canvas for an effective dialogue between the Project Affected Families
and Project Displaced Families and the Administration for Resettlement & Rehabilitation.
Such a dialogue is expected to enable timely completion of projects with a sense of
definiteness as regards costs and adequate attention to the needs of the displaced
persons especially the resource poor sections. The intention is to impart greater flexibility
for interaction and negotiation so that the resultant Package gains all-round acceptability
in the shape of a workable instrument providing satisfaction to all stakeholders/ Requiring
Bodies.

1.4

The Government of Andhra Pradesh Policy on the Resettlement and Rehabilitation of


Project Affected Families and Project Displaced Families will be applicable to the projects
as defined in this policy and upon notification under this policy.

1.5

Administrator for R&R shall implement this Policy in letter and spirit in order to ensure
that the benefits envisaged under the Policy reaches the Project Affected and Displaced
Families, especially resource poor sections including SCs/STs.

CHAPTER - II
2.0 OBJECTIVES OF THE POLICY
The objectives of the Policy are as follows:
2.1

To minimize displacement and to identify non-displacing or least-displacing alternatives;

2.2

To plan the resettlement and rehabilitation of Project Affected and Displaced Families,
(PDFs/ PDFs) including special needs of Tribals and vulnerable sections;

2.3

To provide better standard of living to PDFs and PDFs; and

Rehabilitation and Resettlement (R&R) Policy of Government of Andhra Pradesh - Issued.

G.O. Ms. No.68

Dated the 8th April, 2005

ORDER:
ABSTRACT
Compulsory acquisition of land for implementation of development and infrastructure
projects displaces people from their homes, land and/or their means of livelihood. Apart
from depriving them of their land, livelihood and resources base, displacement has
other psychological, social and cultural consequences also. The Government recognize
the need to minimize large-scale displacement to the extent possible and where
displacement is inevitable, the need to address the issue of displacement with utmost
care, human touch and forethought. Such an approach is especially necessary in respect
of tribal, small and marginal farmers.
2.

Various policies relating to the Resettlement and the Rehabilitation (R&R) of displaced
persons have been in place from time to time, varying from project to project and district
to district. The need has been felt for the evolution of a comprehensive policy on R& R
to ensure uniformity of benefits across the State and also to ensure the delivery of
benefits in a transparent manner.

3.

A Committee was constituted by the Government vide G.O. Ms. No.70, Irrigation & CAD
(Projects Wing) Department, dated 15-07-2004 for preparation of draft R&R Policy for
Government of Andhra Pradesh. The recommendations of the Committee were
discussed in a State level meeting comprising of major stake holders in the policy like
the Department of Energy, Industries, Roads & Buildings, Environment, Forest, Science
& Technology, Finance, Tribal Welfare, law and Revenue. The State level Meeting
endorsed the recommendations of the Committee.
