So on this #WorldWaterDay, lets talk about how @narendramodi would always loved by residents of western Gujarat.

It is story of world's largest drinking water grid affecting 60 million urban and ruler residents, Sardar Sarovar Dam and Narmada Pipeline project. 1/9
The drinking water component of Damn project is understudied so far and it represents interesting heavy infrastructure first of its kind.

All it started in year 2001 when NaMo become CM and he pledge to solve drinking water problem of 60% of rural and urban mass of the state.

The regions of Saurashtra and Kutch are both geographically and culturally quite distinct from central Gujarat. Saurashtra is a coastal peninsula. Kutch is even more isolated.

Lack of rain is main trait of Saurastra and kutch regions.



The early 2000s continued to be a tumultuous time for the state of Gujarat. Following lower-than average rainfall in the 1999 monsoon, summer 2000 was marked by a drought that led to a political crisis as their ignorance of the issue until it was far too late.

Emphasis on basic infrastructure is a hallmark of the Gujarat Model and Water pipelines fit neatly into this vision, allowing the government to ensure ample water for industry and the amenities of 'world-class' life.

At that time Gujarat didn't had any water policy and so in 2002 with the aid of the Dutch government created Gujarat Water Infrastructure Ltd. (GWIL) was created to construct and operate the Narmada canals and pipelines. Here is image of network of GWIL

SSNNL(Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd) sells Narmada water to (GWIL), which delivers and resells it to municipal governments, village pani samitis, or special industrial regions.

This is first of its kind ,a demand driven approach.

This is our PM @narendramodi dream project. He had worked tirelessly to solve the water scarcity of this region. He also fought hard to increase the height of Sardar Sarovar Dam and provided us the technology to lay the canals quickly.

The initial master plan for the drinking water grid proposed to supply 3500 MLD to 8215 villages and
135 urban areas in Saurashtra, Kutch, north Gujarat and the Panchmahals in the east, costing Rs. 7000
crores or roughly USD1.6 billion.

In 2016, the SSNNL website describes the project as covering 9490 villages and 173 towns.
