National Water Development

* The Ministry of Water Resources had formulated a National Perspective Plan (NPP) in August, 1980 for Water Resources Development by transferring water from water surplus basins to water deficit basins/regions by interlinking of Rivers. The NPP has two main components, i.e. the Himalayan Rivers Development Component and the Peninsular Rivers Development Component.
* The National Water Development Agency (NWDA) was set up as a Society in 1982 to carry out surveys and investigations and to prepare feasibility reports of the links under the NPP.
