Ministry of Water Resources in June 2005 conveyed the approval to identify Intra-State links in the States like Bihar and to prepare Pre–feasibility reports of these links by NWDA. This work has now been added to the functions of NWDA after the approval in the Special General Meeting of NWDA Society held on 28.06.2006. Since then NWDA requested all the States/UTs to inform the details of Intra – State links for further studies by NWDA.
The Governments of Nagaland, Meghalaya, Kerala, Punjab, Delhi, Sikkim, Haryana, Union Territories of Puducherry, Andaman & Nicobar islands, Daman & Diu and Lakshadweep have indicated that there is no Intra_State link proposal concerning to their States/territories. Govt. of Puducherry has send a proposal for one interstate link namely Pennaiyar–Sankarabarani link instead of intra state link proposal. Govt. of Puducherry has been informed accordingly.The States Governments of Bihar, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Orissa, Rajasthan, Jharkhand and Tamil Nadu have informed about the Instra-State proposals pertaining to their State.
