The Dam Rehabilitation and Improvement Project (DRIP) has been taken up with loan assistance of the World Bank for rehabilitation and improvement of about 250 dams initially in seven States (namely Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, and Uttarakhand) and institutional strengthening and project management in Central Water Commission (CWC) and other Implementing Agencies; the actual number of dams under DRIP may vary owing to the addition / deletion of dams during implementation. DRIP will be implemented over a period of six-years starting from 18th April, 2012.

The project consists of three components:

  1. Rehabilitation and Improvement of dams and associated appurtenances,
  2. Dam Safety Institutional Strengthening in participating States and CWC, and
  3. Project Management.
