Mission Kakatiya Guidelines Issued

Tenders of all the works under Mission Kakatiya valued more than `10 crore will be cleared by the recently revived Commissionarate of Tenders (CoT). The state government on Friday issued operational guidelines for Mission Kakatiya (Mana Ooru Mana Cheruvu) which aims at restoration of around 45,000 minor irrigation tanks in the state in phases in next five years.

Prioritisation: As the programme is designed to be completed in five years, the following criteria shall be followed for identifying the tanks each year on priority. Tanks which have not been covered under the programmes like state plan, RRR, CBTMP shall be given priority. The rural development department has taken up removal of silt and certain restoration works in 18,369 tanks during the last five years under MGNREGS. Estimation for these tanks under Mission Kakatiya shall be prepared, considering the works already taken up so as to avoid duplication of work. These tanks shall preferably be taken up in subsequent years.

Quality Control: Regular inspection and quality control checks shall be carried out as per normal procedure. Executive Engineer shall take photos before, during execution, and after completion of work and upload on the website.

Works to be taken up: Desiltation, restoration of feeder channel to the tank, re-sectioning of irrigation channels and repairs to CM & CD works, repairs to bund, weir & sluices, raising of FTL wherever possible

Estimates: The estimates shall be prepared based on the standard data and current SSR and shall be realistic. Funds available under Tribal Area Sub Plan (TSP) will be utilised for the programme, ensuring that at least 40 per cent STs living in Tribal area are benefited.
