Delhi, Dhaka push Ganga basin project (Relevant for GS Prelims and Mains Paper II, III)

Bangladesh and India have held talks on the Ganga basin development project after dialogue on the Teesta water sharing agreement slowed down.

Main features of Ganga basin project

1. Navigation and irrigation
Ganga basin development project will help agriculture and river navigation and revive the river economy. Joint dredging and development activities in the basin area are also part of the project.

2. For joint development
The main component of the Ganga basin development is the issue of joint development and management. That apart, Bangladesh needs a new Ganga barrage to hold water released from the Farakka barrage.

The proposed barrage would provide a solution to aridity in the Bangladeshi territory that Dhaka blames on the Farakka barrage in India. Once completed, the Ganga barrage can hold water for the lower riparian system in the lean season.
