        Total 315.66 ha forest land (248.23 ha for head works including 29 ha for spillway
and 67.43 ha for canal) comes under submergence. One village (Kudaridalli) comes under
submergence. Project proponent informed that total 109 families would be displaced due
to submergence area. At the time of rehabilitation, the adults should be treated as
separate family. Hence, total 259 families (adults) i.e. total 816 population would be
rehabilitated. Proposal for R & R with estimated cost Rs. 3477.837 lakhs has been
prepared and submitted to Secretary, Water Resources Department, Government of
Chhattisgarh vide memo dated 24/02/2012. Approval for R & R plan is awaited. It was
informed that previously villagers of Kudaridalli wanted to resettle at village Lalutola, Block
Chhuriya District Rajnangaon. Department has submitted case for allotment of 154 ha
