Project Details

This project proposes to have National Waterways covering the entire nation just like National highways. The Himalayan Waterways lie almost along the entire country from west to east on the northern side. The Central and Southern Waterways cover almost all the states in the centre and south up to Kanyakumari. The waterways provide very cheap and economical transporting system for various goods like food grains, fertilizers, cement, sugar and Minerals. Since the waterway runs at an even height of 500 metres and 250 metres above sea level, we will be able to generate enormous power by utilizing the level difference.

As we have National highways all over the country from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, we can have National Waterways all over the country from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. As we have power grid we can have water grid. Power can be tapped at any point of requirement form the power grid. Similarly water entering the National Waterways can be tapped at any point of requirement. After the completion of the project, there will be no dearth for water in most part of the country either for irrigation or for drinking.

The Himalayan Waterways Project on the north consists of a wide canal travelling form West to East at the foot of Himalayan mountain and above the North of the Ganges River. The Waterway, starting form Jammu runs almost the entire length at the toe of Himalayan Mountain up to Bramhaputra and turns south passing through Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland up to Haflong. The width of the waterway proposed is 150 m and depth of 10 m subject to variation. The waterways will be about 4500 Km long. The constant water levels in the waterway will be 10m. 

There will also be a continuous balancing waterway on the upper side of this waterway, which will act as one long reservoir and check dam. The width of the dam is suitably designed to arrest the oncoming rush of water and also to avoid any silt entering the National Waterways. However the balancing waterway is designed to a width of 250 mts & depth of 30 metres. This waterway will provide flood control in all the northern states especially in U.P., Bihar and Assam. Since the waterway is at an even level, transfer of water is permitted in both ways. That is to say water will flow form Punjab to Assam and from Assam to Punjab meeting the water requirement through out all the states. The flood in Ganges and Bramhaputra will be greatly controlled and drought areas will get water.

The Central Waterways starts in Uttar Pradesh on the Northern side of Vindhya Range and traverses on both sides of the range East and west. It passes through Bihar, West Bengal, and Circle in Maharashtra. The total length of the Central waterway will be about 5750 km. This will also have a balancing waterway of 200 mts width and 30 mts depth. Since the water form Maahandhi will flow to the area under Narmadha and vice versa, the flood and drought in the central region will be greatly minimized. We will be able to generate enormous electricity utilizing the level difference form the waterways to the sea.

The Southern Waterways starts form Maharashtra runs down in Andhra and Tamilnadu up to Kanyakumari. Then it travels in Kerala, Karnataka, and Goa and joins in Maharashtra forming a circle. The Southern Waterways is also a contour canal. The length of the Southern Waterways is 4625 km. Width - 100 metres (approx.) Depth - 10 Metres (approx.). This will also have a balancing waterway of 200 mts width and 30 mts depth. Since the waterways proposed is at an even level, flow of water is in both ways. Water form Andhra will flow to Tamilnadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Maharashtra and water form Maharashtra will flow to Karnataka, Kerala, Tamilnadu and Andhra.
