5.2 VILLAGES AND FAMILIES AFFECTED

In the revised implementation schedule of Dam of December 1989 which is approved by SSCAC, and a minor modification has been proposed by Government of Madhya Pradesh, now a total of 244 villages will be affected in the States of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh instead of 245 villages due to pondage and back water effects corresponding to 1 in 100 year flood. As per information furnished by NCA till June 2013, about 46749 families would be affected due to submergence and backwater effect at full height of dam 138.68m (FRL 455 ft.). State wise breakup of affected villages and number of affected families / people are shown in the Table 5.2 and Figures 5.2 & 5.3.
