Manjeera dry despite inflows

The Krishna basin in the state is finally getting sizeable inflows, but the Godavari river is still devoid of inflows, particularly its tributary, the Manjeera. As a result, the two major projects in North Telangana districts — the Nizamsagar and Sriramsagar projects (SRSP) have failed to get inflows. Uncertainty continues regarding agriculture operations of the ensuing Kharif season in Nizamabad, Adilabad, Karimnagar, Warangal and Nalgonda districts.

Power generation at Nizamsagar and SRSP has come to a grinding halt. Usually, rains in Nasik, Aurangabad, Parbhani, Jalna and Nanded areas of Maharashtra increase inflows into the Godavari. In addition, rainfall in Nizamabad and Adilabad districts also boosts water levels in the SRSP. Rainfall in Balki and Bidar areas of Karnataka increase water flow into the river Manjeera.

Reportedly, the water level in the Singur reservoir has increased in Medak district and there is hope of release of water from there to the Nizamsagar project. There is not sufficient water in the Manjeera from Nizamsagar to Kandakurthi, where the river joins the Godavari. According to official sources, the SRSP had 1058.20 feet water level on Sunday as against its full reservoir level of 1091 ft. Inflow and outflow is only 555 cusecs.

The Nizamsagar project had 1385.32 feet water level on Sunday as against its FRL of 1405 ft. Inflow and outflow was a mere 125 cusecs respectively. The Vishnupuri and Gaikwad projects across the Godavari in Maharashtra have also witnessed lack of inflows, as also the controversial Babli dam on the Godavari near Dharmabad taluk of Nanded district in Maharashtra.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
