Collective Effort with Wisdom: A Convergence Drive under MGNREGS for Improvement of Damodar River Embankment in Jamalpur Block

Responding to the issue of flood and river bank erosion in Damodar River and with an attempt to save rural lives & assets in Jamalpur Block, MGNREGS Cell of Burdwan District and Lower Damodar Irrigation Division (Irrigation & Waterways Department) have made a convergence drive for long term solution of the problem. Lower Damodar Irrigation Division as Project Implementing Agency (PIA), with financial support from the District MGNREGS Cell, prepared a shelf of 28 schemes under Flood Control and protection sector, spread over the jurisdiction of four Gram Panchayats of Jamalpur block. The level of both sides the embankments of Damodar River was below the train line and NH-2 road. Convergence of MGNREGS & Irrigation & Waterways department has improved and increased the level of left embankment and generated 12.08 kms. of rural connectivity.
