The case is all about increasing irrigation facilities after independence but there were certain problems with the removing location of Bhavnath Temple which is between the dam and people who don’t want to change the place of the temple with that there is some other issue also there. After independence in 1947, both central & state governments want overall economic development. In the undivided Bombay province a proposal given to build a dam on river. It calculated 4700 million cu. ft.
Water to develop 92000 acres of land, In 3 districts. To do that 8 villages are totally submerged and resettled at another place. This all requires providing new livelihood to people. The reservoir was to have a catchments area of 230 sq. miles. The average rainfall was 34”. In this 1 plan the F. S. L., was 592 H. F. L. was 596 and R. L. was 601. The directed irrigable area was 19300 acres and the indirect irrigation flow to some 73600acre. It yields 15. 83 lacks revenue per year. Agricultural production increase at 30400 tons. It was 147. 74 lacks. This project was fully feasible in the eyes of the government.
If plan 1 was accepted than the temple was saved by using gates to save from flood. After making 1 proposal the government made 2 proposals. In that, if all three levels rose so that the ultimate capacity raises to 1000 million cu. Ft. in that F. S. L. 595 &H. F. L. 606. By doing this the agricultural production increasing and irrigation facilities provide to larger areas. But in 2 plan temples could not be saved but people remained adamant in their demand. IN 1960 state of Bombay bifurcated and now the Gujarat PWD department began to think about reopened the plan again.
They find this scheme was good for development. The problem is that what should do to become the success of this plan.
To build the dam,
To increase agricultural production,
Do ultimate overall development Problems:
Temple get submerged,
Opposition by villagers
People get displaced.
Location of dam
Religious sentiment can’t be changed.
Cost should be minimized
Minimum people affected
Minimum time in implementation
Plan 1 if no plan 2
Resettlement of affected people
Wall around the temple Help from religious leader
Convincing people about benefit
Raising the height of temple
From all above alternative we compare it with objectives, problem, and criteria we can suggest that to succeeding this scheme government should increasing level of temple by above than flood level with using good construction peeler so ultimately height of temple raised and they saved from flood. By doing so peoples are permit to build dam on river.
If it is not possible to build temple by construction of piller then take help from the religious leader.
