TN government initiates Cauvery-South Vellar river linking project

Tamil Nadu government is planning to interlink Cauvery-South Vellar-Vaigai-Gundar as a part of large river linking project. It is a flagship project to be implemented by Public Works Department at a cost of ₹ 144,000 million. The project will utilize the surplus water of Cauvery and it will be diverted via canal to South Vellar, Vaigai and Gundar. The water will be made available to people of Tiruchi, Pudukkottai, Sivaganga, Virudhunagar and Ramanathapuram districts.

Under the first phase of the intra-State river-link project, a canal will be built from the Mayanur barrage on Cauvery river to the South Vellar – a distance of about 118.45 km – at an estimated cost of ₹6,941 crore
