Share with Your Friends

Recently the Cabinet has approved the financing and implementation of Ken-Betwa River Linking Project (RLP).

The Ken-Betwa River Linking Project aims to transport water from Ken to Betwa river through the construction of Daudhan Dam and a canal connecting the two rivers.

This will be the first major RLP under the National Perspective Plan for inter-linking of rivers.

It will transport water from water surplus areas to drought prone and water scarce areas.

Socio-economic benefits of this RLP (River Linking Project)

Economic benefits:

  • Irrigation in drought prone and water scarce areas of Bundelkhand region.
  • 103 MW Hydro power and 27 MW solar power based power generation.
  • Overall economic activities will get impetus to boost employment generation.

Social benefit:

  • Provide relief to women and girls from the intense labor of fetching water from long distances.
  • It will help in improving health and education in the region by reducing the burden of diseases (due to unsafe drinking water).
  • Helpful in preventing migration due to any pressure in the area.
  • However, concerns have been raised that the project is partially in Madhya Pradesh. Will submerge Panna Tiger Reserve and will also affect the habitat of vultures and jackals.
