Water level in Maha dams at 40%, enough to last till July 15

#Jalyuktshivar working well
This year when 140 district in the country are dry, in Maharashtra, even those districts which are amongst driest in the country are not badly placed
except for dams in Amravati and Nagpur regions of Vidarbha, all reservoirs are in a position to supply water till July 15 as they have 35-40% stock. Water levels in dams in and around Mumbai, Pune, Nashik and in Konkan region are impressively high—40-48% to 55-60%.
In 2016, the water stock in dams across Maharashtra, barring Mumbai and Pune region, was around 17% and in 2017, it was 40%.
around 76,000 artificial lakes dug up over the last two years as part of the state’s ambitious #JalyuktShivar campaign have recharged wells in farms, and can cater to the domestic needs of farmers till May.
The #Jalyuktshivar campaign has improved groundwater levels in wells and borewells, a boon for farmers in dry regions, especially Marathwada.
In April 2016, the water stock in Marathwada was 0.8% against 41.5% in 2017 and 35.4% in 2018, indicates relief for the state’s driest region this summer. #Jalyuktshivar

How dam desilting is transforming the most drought-prone areas in Maharashtra.…

#Jalyuktshivar is a pronounced success.
But fewer know about #Gaalmuktdharan scheme.
While the numbers are still being counted, it is likely that the state would have spent less than Rs 25 crore on desilting these dams.

330 crores would have been required to transport this much water to villages via tankers

@nitin_gadkari Major automobile manufacturers like Tata Motors and Ashok Leylandcould also form an operator company on the pattern of London Transport model, the minister proposed while promising to remove regulatory hurdles to give a push to e-vehicles in India.

मेरी भववाधा हरौ, राधा नागरि सोय।

जा तन की झाँई परे स्याम हरित दुति होय।।

काजर दै नहिं ऐ री सुहागिन, आँगुरि तो री कटैगी गँड़ासा

:))))) #Bihari
कब को टेरत दीन ह्वै, होत न स्याम सहाय।

तुम हूँ लागी जगत गुरु, जगनायक जग बाय।।

वो फ़िराक़ हो या विसाल हो, तेरी याद महकेगी एक दिन
वो ग़ुलाब बन के खिलेगा क्या, जो चिराग़ बन के जला न हो

ग़ुलामी को बरकत समझने लगें
असीरों को ऐसी रिहाई न दे
मान मौसम का कहा, छाई घटा, जाम उठा
आग से आग बुझा, फूल खिला, जाम उठा

पी मेरे यार तुझे अपनी क़सम देता हूँ
भूल जा शिकवा-गिला, हाथ मिला, जाम उठा
