A Consortium of TATA Projects Limited and Shanghai Urban Construction Group received the multi-crore rupees project from Government of Rajasthan, the first river rejuvenation project in the country on a dry and arid landscape.
TATA Projects Limited said the execution of rejuvenation of Dravyawati River worth Rs.1,676 crore will be taken up on 47-km long river in Jaisalya village, which has become a mere canal now, said the company.
The foundation stone was laid by Mrs. Vasundhara Raje, Chief Minister of Rajasthan in the presence of Mr. Cyrus Pallonji Mistry, Chairman of the TATA Group.
This pioneering project is also the first-of-its-kind in river rejuvenation attempted on a dry and arid landscape in India. After the rejuvenation, the river would be developed into an environment friendly tourist destination and would prevent flooding of nearby areas.
The 47 km long Dravyawati River which is located between Jaisalya village at the foothills of the Nahargarh Fort and the River Dhund, has deteriorated into a nallah, over the last 100 years. At various places, polluted water from nearby areas, garbage and debris have caused comprehensive damage to the condition of this river. The project is scheduled to be completed by October 2018. The consortium will be responsible for the maintenance of this project for 10 years from the completion of the project.
In this project, besides the amortization of 170 MLD polluted water, more than 100 fall structures will be constructed to ensure the availability of water in this channel throughout the year. About 16,000 trees will be planted and 65,000 square meters of green area will be developed under this project.
