Union Water-Energy Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat has asked the governments of the two states to immediately submit DPRs regarding new irrigation projects in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
To this end, the Minister wrote separate letters to Chief Ministers of both the states. He said inter-state water disputes could be resolved amicably if details of DPRs were submitted. He said it was inevitable that these issues would be addressed under the AP Redistribution Act-2014.
The Andhra Pradesh government has given DPRs for a total of 19 projects, including 15 on the Krishna River and four on the Godavari River. Shekhawat reminded Jagan that DPRs have not been submitted for any other projects except the Purushothapatnam project.
He said that DPRs should be submitted subject to regulations on uplift schemes in Rayalaseema. In a letter to KCR, the Minister said that DPRs have to be submitted for a total of 15 projects in Telangana.
Of these, 8 are on the Krishna River and 7 on the Godavari River, and it has been clarified that permission is mandatory for these projects.
