Hydrology Project Phase-I
To establish a functional hydrological
To improve institutional capacity
Implemented in 9 States viz. Andhra
Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Karnataka,
Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, and Tamil
Nadu and 6 Central Agencies viz.
CWC, CGWB, IMD, NIH, CWPRS and MOWR.
The project started in September, 1995 and
closed on December, 2003.
Cleared by the CCEA in October, 2005.
The agreement was signed on 19th January, 2006
and approved by the GOI in May, 2006.
The overall project objective is to extend and
promote the sustained and effective use of HIS
by all stakeholder.
4 new states (Himachal Pradesh, Punjab Goa &
Pondicherry) & 2 new Central Agencies
(CPCB, BBMB) included in the phase-II of the
The original completion period of HP-II was
June, 2012. The project completion period has
been extended up to May, 2014 by the World
Constructed two Lecture halls, one computer lab and
extended Krishna Hostel at NWA, CWC, Pune.
Upgraded Godavari Hostel by installing TV, AC etc in
each room at NWA, CWC, Pune.
Conducted 57 training programmes and trained 1342
officers from Central as well as State official.
19 CWC officials participated in 9 International
Major Activities of CWC
Institutional Strengthening- Contd-
Development of online Surface Water Information
System (eSWIS) to upgrade the functionality of the
existing SWDES, HYMOS and WISDOM Software(HIS) .
Installed Real Time Water Quality Monitoring
System(RTWQMS) at three sites namely Agra
(Jawahar Bridge) on river Yamuna, Lucknow on river
Gomti and Moradabad on river Ramganga for
monitoring of 6 parameters The real time water
quality data is available for above sites from 18th
July, 2013 on web site http://cwc.rtwqms.com .
Three training on e-SWIS was conducted.
Major Activities of CWC
Development of Hydrological Design Aids (Surface
• Standardization of Methodologies/protocols for
rational design and analysis and carry out
integrated water resources analysis including
study of hydrology of the complete water system
Assessment of Water Resources Potential -
Availability/yield Assessment (HDA-Y);
Estimation of Design Flood(HDA-F); and
Sediment Rate Estimation(HDA-S)
Major Activities of CWC

Balance cost to be booked in other scheme - INR 4.24
Vertical Extension – Contd-
Installed Video-conferencing facilities at
Delhi, Pune, Gandhinagar, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Bhuba
neswar & Coimbatore since October, 2011.
Lectures on subject matters for training at NWA are
being delivered using Video-conferencing.
Provided One Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer
for analysis of trace and toxic metals at National River
Water Quality Laboratory, CWC, New Delhi
Modernize Hydrological Observation Stations by
installing Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP) for
discharge measurement on large rivers at 15 sites
Procured two set of Arc GIS (Arc Info, Arc 3-D

Financial Target and Achievement
Allocation under the Project as per PIP –Rs. 24.90 Crore
Allocation as per Revised Cost Table, 2013-Rs. 26.73
Expenditure upto March 2014- Rs. 17.38Crore
Reimbursement Claim upto March,2014- Rs.17.38 Crore
Likely Expenditure by May 31, 2014
On HDA-SW Rs.0.85 Crore
eSWIS Rs.0.73 Crore
Others Rs.0.17 Crore
But it is very unlikely that payment for above activities
could be made up to May, 2014 due to 1/3 ceiling on the
expenditure imposed by MOWR
The infrastructure / facility created under HP-II will
be maintained through support provided by the
Government of India under different Plan Schemes.
Training on the software developed under HP-II will
be provided by trained CWC official as and when
Dissemination data and application of HIS :
All hydro meteorological data will be entered online
through new eSWIS software and the same will be
disseminated as per Hydro-meteorological Data
Dissemination Policy of MOWR through eSWIS and
www.india-wris.nrsc.gov.in web site.
Post Project Plan for continuation of HP-II
Hydrology Project has been implemented mainly in
There is need to expand the project in remaining parts
of India also to cover all hydrological basins of India
for better management of water resources.
The Project should be initiated in the early phase of
starting of Hydrology Project to achieve the target
within stipulated time frame.
The processes of tender preparation/award also get
delayed due to delay in obtaining clearances from
different authorities. Capacity building as per project
could not achieve because International Training
Courses as stipulated in the project plan could not
