Interlinking of Rivers in India: Issues and Concerns by M. Monirul Qader Mirza,Ahsan Uddin Ahmed,Q.K. Ahmad

Inter-basin water transfers are advanced human interventions on normal platforms that could have profound adversarial in addition to necessary social, fiscal and environmental implications. India’s plan to interlink its rivers (ILR) and to move water may perhaps, based on one set of perspectives, generate confident merits via more suitable and extended irrigation and will additionally give a contribution to flood and drought dangers mitigation for India, even supposing the magnitudes are arguable. in spite of the fact that, there are opposing perspectives, within the context of India itself, that the interlinking plan is economically prohibitive, fraught with uncertainties, and has capability for disastrous and irreversible hostile after-effects. Water deficit could be lowered via more suitable water administration with out huge scale engineering interventions. additionally a number of the rivers concerned, fairly within the Himalayan part, are overseas and, as a result, the scheme has significant implications for different riparians. certainly, the deliberate move of water from the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers will adversely effect Bangladesh socially, economically and environmentally---unless preparations are made to keep up ancient flows, that is not going to be possible. Any multipurpose garage reservoirs in upstream nations, equivalent to Nepal and Bhutan, might facilitate strength iteration and different merits yet also will reason antagonistic environmental and social affects to those nations. for this reason, the ILR plan will additional complicate current water sharing and administration difficulties among India and different co-basin nations. Strengthening and growth of cooperative efforts one of the co-basin international locations for water assets improvement and sharing can generate fiscal merits for the folk of those international locations and in addition foster co-riparian relationships.
