Raipur, May 24 (PTI) The Centre has given its

in-principle consent to carry forward the work of the long-

pending Bodhghat multipurpose irrigation project in

Chhattisgarh, a state government official said on Sunday.

The proposed project, to be set up at a cost of

Rs 22,653 crore and considered a boon to the south Bastar

region, would provide irrigation facility to an area of 3.66

lakh hectares annually in naxal-affected Dantewada, Sukma and

Bijapur districts, besides generating 300 MW of hydro power,

the official said.

The project envisages construction of a dam on the

Indravati River near Barsur village in Dantewada district.

"The Union Ministry of Jal Shakti and the Central

Water Commission (CWC) have given their in-principle assent to

the pre-feasibility report of the Bodhghat project. Now the

work of survey and preparation of Detailed Project Report

(DPR) will be done at the earliest," he said, adding that the

project has been pending for the last 40 years.

Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel had recently discussed

the project with Union Minister for Jal Shakti Gajendra Singh

Shekhawat through video conferencing and explained its

importance.

The state government had sent a pre-feasibility report

to the CWC on April 2 this, the official said. PTI TKP
