Project in Brief

Dolaithabi Barrage Project with its head works on Iril River located at Dolaithabi village in Senapati District of Manipur envisages construction of a barrage and canal system to serve a CCA of 5500 ha in 15 villages on left bank and 12 villages on right bank of the river in the Imphal East District. The project shall provide on completion an ultimate potential of 7545 ha with intensity of irrigation 137.2%.

Project envisages construction of following component:

Barrage: Construction of 78.75 m long barrage across river Iril with 6 bays of 10 m each for a designed discharge of 2900 cumec.

Canals: 1. Main Canal 2.58 km long with head discharge of 3.013 cumec.

2. Left Main Canal 17.30 km (Including 2.58 km of Main Canal) long with head discharge of 0.96 cumec.

3. Right Main Canal 17.30 km long with head discharge of 2.053 cumec.

Techno-Economic Appraisal

The project was approved for Rs 18.86 crore by the Planning Commission in June 1992 for its completion during VIIIth Plan. However, owing to rescission of the original contract and fixation of new contract, financial constraints under successive State Plan coupled with the prevailing law and order situation in the State of Manipur, the work could not make progress.

The first revised estimated cost of the project is Rs 98.37 crore (Sept. 2005 price level) was approved by the Planning Commission in May 2007.

The second revised project estimated cost of Rs 215.52 crore at November 2008 price level was approved in the 100th meeting of TAC of MoWR held on 09.10.2009. Planning Commission accorded investment clearance in January 2010.

Present Status

The project was started in the year 1992 and there was delay in work due to several reasons. The project was brought under AIBP in the year 2002-03 and so far no irrigation potential is created. The barrage and canal system is under progress.
