The KIRLOSKAR BROTHERS LIMITED -- 83rd ANNUAL REPORT 2002-2003
The most ambitious river-linking project interlinking 37 rivers at an estimated cost of Rs.5600 billion, as and when implemented, will generate a huge requirement for water handling equipment over a period of at least two decades. The objective is to deliver 173 billion cubic meter (bcm) of water to irrigate around 35 million hectares of land. The other spin off would be generation of 40,000 MW of Hydel power. The scheme is going to throw up good opportunities in water infrastructure sector and likely to benefit pump industry.
