Dam Rehabilitation and Improvement Project (DRIP) originally envisaged the rehabilitation and improvement of about 223 dams within four states - namely, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, and Tamil Nadu - with provision for taking up some more dams in other states; the actual numbers may vary owing to the addition / deletion of dams during implementation (click current status).
The Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC), an undertaking of the Government of India, has shown interest for participation in DRIP .
The Corporation has so far constructed four multipurpose dams at Tilaiya, Konar, Maithon and Panchet and an irrigation system comprising a barrage on river Damodar at Durgapur and a canal system of 2459 km. As part of DRIP activity, DVC has proposed rehabilitation of Konar, Maithon and Panchet Dams, at a cost of Rs. 142.76 crore.
