Project in brief

The Prakasha Barrage Medium Irrigation Project is constructed in the Tapi basin in Nandurbar district of Maharashtra. The project comprises of 503 m long barrage with weir of the maximum height of 19.10 m having 27 vertical lift gates each of size 15 m x 9 m across river Tapi near village Prakasha, Taluka Shahada in district Nandurbar. The clear waterway provided in the barrage is 405 m to pass design flood of 50517 m3/s at u/s HFL of 120.50 m. No canal system has been proposed for this project. The storage created by the construction of this barrage will provide water to irrigate the culturable command area (CCA) of 9840 ha in 24 villages of Nandurbar Taluka of Nandurbar district, 7 villages of Shahada Taluka of Nandurbar district and 2 villages of Shindkheda Taluka in Dhule district. The lifting of water and its distribution will be done by the farmers through the co-operative and private lift irrigation schemes. 66.906% command area of this project lies in DPAP area. The ultimate irrigation potential of the project is 10307 ha. The project will also provide 1.063 Mm3 water for domestic use for Khondamali and 12 nearby villages in Khaparkheda Taluka of Nandurbar district; 0.133 Mm3 water for Koparli water supply scheme in Nandurbar Taluka and 3.04 Mm3 of water for industrial use by MIDC, Nandurbar and 0.133 Mm3 water for Pushpadanteshwar Sahakari Sakhar Karkhana,in Samsherpur Taluka of Nandurbar district.

The construction of civil works of the project was started in April 1999 and the mechanical works started in May 2002. The project was approved by the Planning Commission, Govt. of India for an estimated cost of Rs. 178.91 crore at 1999-2000 price level in December 2007.

The balance works of the main barrage; RCC deck bridge & approach road; mechanical work of gates; and other miscellaneous works of the project were included in AIBP during 2007-08. At the time of inclusion of the project under AIBP, 98% main barrage, 37% deck bridge & approach road, 52% mechanical works and 90% misc. works were complete. The balance works of the project to create the ultimate irrigation potential of 10307 ha were included under AIBP. The project is completed during 2009-10 and full potential is created.
