Orissa govt plans barrages on the Mahanad

The Chhattisgarh government has planned to construct seven barrages on the Mahanadi river for providing water to the industries coming up in the districts along the river. The state government is investing Rs 1,467 crore for constructing the barrages, of which four would come up in Janjgir-Champa district and the remaining three barrages in Raigarh and Raipur districts. The government would, however, get a tax of Rs 628 crore annually for the water it would give to the industries. The project was likely to be completed in three years. The construction of barrages would also help increasing the ground water level that would aid irrigation. The major names include National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC), Ispat Industries Limited, Jindal India Limited, Toronto Power Limited, Moser Baer Limited, GMR Energy, Lanco Amarkantak and Essar among others.
