efforts by HP Government.
Total CCA of the Project is 3150 ha. the total length of the main canal
is 13.845 Kms. which comprises of 1.772 Kms. tunnel portion. The discharge
carrying capacity of the main canal is 92.16 cusec (2.61 cumec). The
main canal will take off from right bank of Dehar Khad near village
Anuhi. All the canals are proposed to be lined. A head weir will be
constructed across the Dehar Khad near village Anuhi to divert water
of Khad and nine major cross drainage structures at different locations
will also be constructed.
In this Project, there is 715 ha. CCA where Flow Irrigation is not possible.
To irrigate this area 6 lift irrigation schemes have been proposed.
Out of 6. LIS one has been constructed on left bank of Dehar Khad near
head works and in the other 5 LIS water will be lifted directly from
the main canal.

signed in the year August 1983 which was implemented in the year 1998.
The project envisages drawal of water from Anandpur Hydel Channel through
syphon and will be collected in intake chamber constructed by P.S.E.B.
The water will be conveyed by 700 mm dia 480 meter gravity line and
will be delivered in sump well of 10 lacs litres capacity. The same
will be lifted by installation of pumps through six rising mains of
M.S pipes. The 1st rising main will serve an area of 176 ha., second
295 ha., third 846 ha., fourth 320 ha., fifth 325 ha. & sixth 388
ha. The rising mains will discharge water to delivery tank at the highest
point of the respective command areas from where it will be delivered
through gravity main and sub mains to the field.
The work on the project was taken in hand in the year 1999. Firstly
an amount of Rs. 17.95 lakh was deposited with PSEB authorities for
construction of intake structure and syphon from Anandpur Hydel Channel
which has been completed. The work of laying of gravity main from intake
to sump well having 700 mm dia MSERW pipe in a length of 480 metre also
stands completed. Now the work of construction of pump house has been
