Project in Brief

The Upper Manar Medium Irrigation Project is being constructed in the Godavari basin in Nanded district of Maharashtra. The project envisages construction of the following components.

i. 953.75 m long earth dam with the maximum height of 26.60 m and 328.25 m long composite masonry and concrete dam with the maximum height of 30.90 m having 224 m long gated spillway on right flank with 47 m long non-overflow blocks on left flank and 57.25 m long blocks on right flank of the spillway across river Manar near village Limboti in Loha Taluka of Nanded district. The spillway has 15 radial gates each of size 12 m x 6.50 m to pass the design flood discharge of 5774 m3 /s.

ii. 58 km long Left Bank Canal (LBC) with 5.41 m3 /s discharge at head to irrigate 6000 ha area (ICA) in Nanded district (4446 ha in Loha Taluka and 1554 ha in Kandhar Taluka).

The ultimate irrigation potential of the project is 12420 ha. The provision has also been kept to supply 1.84 Mm3 of water annually to Kandhar Town for domestic use. The CCA of the project is 9980 hectare.

Subsequent to TAC clearance, the Planning Commission, Govt. of India accorded investment clearance to the project for an estimated cost of Rs. 26.18342 crore in 1997. The revised project was cleared by TAC for Rs.424.50 crore (at 2009 price level )deleting proposed Lift irrigation scheme (LIS) for investment clearance from Planning Commission. Subsequently the project received investment clearance for Rs. 424.5 crores (2009-SOR) in the year 2010.

Present Status

The project was included in AIBP during 2002-03. At the time of inclusion of project in AIBP, 89% works of the earth dam and 30% works of the masonry spillway were complete. The works of canal system was not started. The balance works of the earth dam, masonry spillway, ICPO, canal system with DISNET were included in AIBP to create the irrigation potential of 8280 ha. Upto March 2011 potential of 1836 hectare is created.
