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).
Odisha has 163 large dams, out of these 26 dams have been identified for rehabilitation and improvement works under DRIP by the Odisha Water Resources Department (OWRD).
Restoration of the above 26 dams along with activities of Institutional Strengthening and Project Management in OWRD is proposed to be covered under the DRIP at an estimated cost of Rs. 751.19 Crore. The number of dams under DRIP and financial outlay may vary during implementation (click current status).
