AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE ON THE UTILIZATION OF THE GODAVARI WATERS AND RESOURCES


 The RoFR act recognizes the dwelling site, religious places, burial grounds, village council sites along with places of MFP, water resources, biodiverisity etc and also PVT tenures. As the implementation boils down to title deeds for house sites and lands under cultivation, SAKTI engaged the Chenchu youth to document their traditional knowledge in their idiom and dialect, in encouraging them to assert as inborn foresters, capable of managing these resources as envisaged in the Act.


"Since SAKTI activities are mostly issue based and covering a large area, here we concentrate on the forest-related programmes of SAKTI for the present study."

 Rampachodavaram (East Godavari), May 8:  The much hyped debate on Bhupathipalem reservoir project went off without any heated arguments between the government representatives and political parties.  The Telugu Desam did not attend the meeting.

 The works on the construction of the left canal of the project will be taken up in a week, while the works on the head works of the project were already grounded six months ago.

 Samajwadi representative Mr Hari Mohan asked the utility of the nearly Rs 100 crore project in the rain-fed area of the Agency and suggested taking up small check dams or anicuts to provide water facilities.  He also sought clarification on diversion of water to Surampalem, the amount of benefit to tribals and details on relief and rehabilitation package to the displace and affected people.

 Indira Sagar Project, Chief Engineer Mr M Venkateswara rao clarified by saying that as the rainfall in the area was not uniform, they had to go for the project to provide assured irrigation facility to the people and said that without affecting the contemplated ayacut area, they would divert water to Surampalem.

 He said that the project would provide ayacut to the extent of 15,720 acre exclusively in the tribal region.

 The total land expected to come under irrigation is 23,086 acre.

 In case villages like Bhupathipalem, Gandhinagar and Kothapakala are totally submerged, relief and rehabilitation packagae at a cost of Rs. 4.06 crore will be implemented, he said.

 Congress representative Mr Rameswara rao wanted to fine out whether there was any proposal for land development in the tribal are in addition to allocation of funds.  Chief Engineer Rao made it clear that there was no such provision in the project and assured to take up the matter with the government.  He also assured for provision of funds from the ITDA or the Irrigation department with the approval from the government.
