Gujarat CM Approves Pipeline Scheme at a Cost of Rs. 54 crore to Facilitate Irrigation in Unjha-Patan Talukas

Gujarat Chief Minister Smt. Anandiben Patel today approved a pipeline scheme to be built at a cost of Rs. 54 crore to facilitate irrigation in water scarcity hit regions of Unjha and Patan of North Gujarat. According to the pro-farmer decision taken by CM Smt. Patel, an approval has been received by Gujarat Water Resources Development Corporation to expand the branches 4 and 5 of Dharoi Extended Canal to Brahmanwada of Unjha through Narmada based Khorsam-Matpur pipeline.

Moreover, as a part of network planning, total 10 water reservoirs falling in the path of the pipeline such as Matpur, Visalvasna, Sunok, Tudav, Muktupur, Varwada and Brahmanwada could be connected. The natural runoff which is passing to Tundav, Sunok, Matpur is crossing the pipeline nearby Brahmanwada and Sunok. The surrounding area would be benefitted by refilling water in the natural runoff line by the usage of taping. Ultimately, water for subsidiary irrigation in 1500 hector area will be provided through this work.
