Letter to the Minister of State for Water Resources (Thanneermukkom Barrage Project)

Dear Shri. Arjun Ram Meghwal,

Kindly refer to your letter dated 16th October, 2017, informing that the Ministry is yet to receive the proposal from the State Government on the modernization of Thanneermukkom Barrage Project.

The State Government has submitted the proposal for inclusion of the project under the Flood Management Programme (FMP) funding to the Ministry, along with the IMC clearance as per norm, as early as 20th March 2017. Though the IMC clearance was given, the Ministry could not include the same under FMP funding due to reduction of FMP budget for the whole country.

As advised by the Ministry, the State Government has submitted a fresh proposal along with all the details for extension of time up to 2019-2020, the same is pending with the CWC, Coimbatore.

Therefore, I request for your kind intervention for the early sanction and inclusion of the project in 2019-20.

With regards,

Yours sincerely,

PINARAYI VIJAYAN
