MGNRGEGA REPORT ON “DALKAR JALA” Goghat-I Development Block Goghat, Hooghly The river Amodar flows through the Hooghly district after passing Bankura and drains its water in the Rupnarayan after passing West Midnapur. In Goghat Block the river Amodar is locally known as “Dalkar Jala”. The “Jala” in Bengali refers to wet land and the term signifies to the nature waste land as this portion remains practically barren thoughout the year and flood in monsoon causes much distress to the local people in four Gram Panchayats namely Saora, Nakunda, Goghat and Bali. The shape of “dalkar jala” is just like a bowl and cause of flooding in this region is due to its shape. Siltation in the river Amodar prevents the flow of accumulated water in rainy season and makes the region water logged for 3 to 4 months. As the river losses its capacity to hold water in its channel , people do not get any water from the river after the month of December. Thus the overflow of water in rainy season brings about flood and scarcity of water in winter and summer makes the area barren. As a preventive measure of flood and with a view to overall development of the people a massive project under NREGA has been taken up to desilt the Amodar and its tributaries. The total cost of the project has been estimated around Rs. 2.5 Crore. There are 15 nos. of schemes that are being run under the pen name “Excavation of Preliminary drainage channel at Dalkar Jala” in four Gram Panchayat of this Block. MGNRGEGA REPORT ON “DALKAR JALA” Commencement of the project: 09/02/10 , Scheme No. S3.1 at “Dalkar Jala” The project has been launched in 2nd Feb,2010 in the river part of Nakunda Gram Panchayat The overall success of this project is far reaching as these schemes are ongoing and 2.5 Crore estimate is only to dig the channel. Supplementary schemes with respect to the project such as construction of check dam in some portion of the river will be made after measuring the water flow in this current year to hold the water in its channel.

S3.5 Total 100283 10639076 MGNRGEGA REPORT ON “DALKAR JALA” Prospects of Excavation of Preliminary Drainage Channel in the alignment of river Amodar at Nakunda Gram Panchayat a. Volume of Water in the channel at Nakunda:length X Breadth X Height = 15000 X 10 X 2 = 300000 cu.m. b. Average Annual Rainfall in metres under Arambag Sub-Division = 1.318 m. c. Area covered under Dalkar Jala at Nakunda G.P. = 10.50 sq. km = 10500000 sq.m d. Total Rain Water harvested as per point ‘c’ = 10500000 X 1.318 = 13839000 cum e. Rain water collected & passing through Channel (taking Seepage @ 20%) = 11071200 cum f. Rain water collected in one of four months during monsoon: 2767800 cum g. So in normal year as in year 2009 rainfall will flood the Channel. h. Now taking evaporation rate to be 20%,25%, 30% during Kartick Agrayan, Poush months respectively and seepage rate at 10% flat we will have water volume as 216000, 145800, 91854 cum.resp in those months.. i. A Normal crop requiring water @ 20 Acre inch can be raised in 101.6 cum of water. So 91854 cum of water can raise 91854/101.6 = 904 Acre of crop but if we keep on an average 1 ft of water for fishery we can harvest about = 452 acres of land. j. Catfish may be raised during aforesaid months. k. If mulched, residual moisture on ground can be used to raise plants that are water tolerant. Excavation of Preliminary drainage channel for a length of 28.00 km to 32.00 km in the alignment of river Amodar within Nakunda GP. Men & Women at Work: Scheme No.S3.5 MGNRGEGA REPORT ON “DALKAR JALA” Social Effect: Feel good factor in labourers is rising. It is seen that whereas in December 2009 the average man-days in Nakunda Gram Panchayat was only 9.79 it becomes 21.60 in March 2010. It is expected that it will be around 100 at the end this financial year. Migration of labourers has been stopped. Even a crisis of harvest labourers has been realized during paddy harvest time this year as most of the labourer are engaged in NREGA works. This all tell that if one generates employment in the lowest strata of people demanding employment social evil like labour exploitation by person or contractor can be warded off. Environmental Effect: Accumulation of filthy water in the region for a long period (3 to 4 months) would make the area unhygienic for living and it would have bad effect on its flora & fauna . Now excavation of drainage channel in the Amodar river may resolve the water logging problems. Economic Effect: a. Water accumulated in the channel can be used for irrigation to produce crops in summer and in winter seasons where almost the entire area looks barren and desolate. b. Pisciculture can be started. c. Trees, both good wood and fruit bearing can be cultivated. d. Fodder production can be enhanced so is vegetable gardening. As it is only the beginning, overall success can only be experienced later if the schemes under this project are completed uniformly and timely by the four Gram Panchayats of this Block and also by the neighbouring MGNRGEGA REPORT ON “DALKAR JALA” Gram Panchayats under Ghatal Panchayat samity of the District West Midnapur.
