TOI churns out Lies in matters of Economy of Gujarat. Today for example TOI reported 25 Dams in Saurashtra are 90% plus full. But official data clipped here all are Pigmy dams.

 

Even as there was 28.8% increase in rainfall over Saurashtra & Kutchh, 2-3 times over area of Punjab but 138+20 =158 Dams Gross Storage was 486.68 MCM on 11-07-2017 increased to 608.18 MCM. This region contributes 70% of Agricultural Produce of Gujarat.

 

158 Dams in Saurashtra-Kutchh serving 40m population has on avg 4 MCM – Delhi consumers 2-3 MCM per day, Dam Storages Can’t meet daily Municipal Water Needs of the region – This Tragic Fact and 70 Years achievement. 

 

When there is Heavy Rains GATES OF DAMS are opened up to save Small Dams – TOI when Delightfully Reporting 25 Dams overflowing when just 4 small dams were 100% full, 4 more 90%+ full, 21 let FLOODS PASS THROUGH & LOST TO SEA.

 

90% Agriculture in Gujarat Depend on Rains or Tube-Wells – Low Productivity or High Cost irrigation – but 1500 Gujarat Farmers are under IT Net.

Avg 25% Growth in Rainfall in 4 Days But Gross Dam Storage Grows Just 3.42%.
