Polavaram Dam Project

The operation of the Polavaram dam project, which is slated to begin in the year 2022, has raised concerns of development-induced displacement.

  • It is a multi-purpose irrigation project located on the Godavari River near Ramayampet village in the West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh.
  • In this the water of Godavari River has been diverted towards Krishna river basin.
  • The project will provide irrigation facilities to Krishna, East and West Godavari and Visakhapatnam districts through two major canals.

Associated Concerns:

  • Underestimation of compensation to the local people, problems in resettlement sites (unsuitable for tribal needs), livelihood, lack of local consultation, submergence of domicile area etc.
  • In addition, the project will affect the recognition of their forest rights in the notified scheduled areas.
