              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.

 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.

four schemes taken up in river portion under Nakunda Gram
Panchayat may be analyzed with regard to Social, Economic and
Environmental effect on the lives of the local people and natural
resources.

                                            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.

          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.
