Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar’s Directive Regarding the Approval Of Proposal To Release Gosikhurd Dam Water In Ghaodazari Pond Through An UpstreamIrrigation Plan.

Finance Minister and Guardian Minister of Chandrapur District, Shri Sudhir Mungantiwar directed for the approval of the Upstream Irrigation Scheme with approximate cost Rs 86.56 Crores to be implemented at Gosikhurd right canal with length 34 Km for 20 Dalghami water.

On 21st August, Finance Minister instructed concerned authorities regarding this proposal at Cabinet meeting. The meeting was also attended by MP Jayakumar Rawal, MP Ashok Nete, MLA Bunty Bhangadia, Zilla Parishad Member Sanjay Gajpure, Ghoshzari Confederation Committee Coordinator Ishwar Kumar Kamadi, Ramesh Patil Borkar, Vidarbha Irrigation Development Board Executive Director AvinashKurve, Gosikhurd Project Board Superintendent Engineer Shri. Sheikh, Executive Engineer of Ghodzari Canal Department Shri Mandwar, Deputy Secretary, Water ResourcesMrDharne, etc.

Ghodazari project of Nagbheed Taluka, Chandrapur District has irrigation capacity of 3846 Hectors and it was set up by British Rule. The lake work has been accomplished in 1923. At present, the lake is irrigating 5881 Hectors land. However, such huge demand is creating stress on the lake capacity and hence,Ghodzhari conflict committee has demanded upstream irrigation implementation at Gosikhurd Project to release water in Ghodazari lake. The conflict committee had also warned that they will commit suicidal action if their prolonged demand is not fulfilled. Finance Minister considered their demand seriously and organized the Cabinet meeting for immediate action.

A preliminary budget has been prepared for Gosikhurd Right Canal’s 34 Kms region upstream irrigation scheme for 20 Dalghami water. According to this scheme, water will be uplifted for 22 Meters and then it will be released into Ghodazari Lake using 18Km pipeline. This irrigation plan will require a sound infrastructure with pump house, switchyards, pumps, pipelines and connectors and its tentative preliminary budget costs around Rs 86.56 Crores. Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar has directed that this tentative budget proposal should be approved at the administrative level.
