Govt issues two Gazette Notifications for jurisdiction of Krishna and Godavari River Management Boards

Government has issued two Gazette Notifications for jurisdiction of Krishna and Godavari River Management Boards. Jal Shakti Ministry has notified the jurisdiction of the two Boards in terms of administration, regulation, operation and maintenance of listed projects in Godavari and Krishna rivers in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. This step is expected to ensure judicious utilization of water resources in the two states.

The Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act 2014 contains provisions for the effective management of river waters in the two states. Constitution of the Godavari and Krishna River Management Boards and the constitution of an Apex Council for the supervision of the functioning of these Boards, is laid down in this Act.

This decision of the Centre for notifying the jurisdiction of two Boards would go a long way in enabling the River Boards to discharge their responsibilities to the fullest  and bring about efficiency in management of water resources in the two States.
