2 Tehri dam (Uttarakhand, India)
Highest dam in India over river Bhagirathi. Also 4th largest Rock-fill dam in the world. Height : meters & Length : 575 meters. Total generating capacity : 2000 MW.

3 Bhakra Dam (Punjab & Himachal Pradesh, India)
India’s highest Concrete gravity dam at m across the Sutlej River. Length : m. Total generating capacity : 1325 MW

4 Nagarjuna Sagar Dam (Andhra Pradesh, India)
World's largest masonry dam built across Krishna River. Height : 150 m & Length : 1600 m. One of the earliest projects initiated for Green Revolution in India by providing clean energy Total generating capacity : 816 MW

5 Sardar Sarovar Dam (Gujarat, India)
Gravity dam across the Narmada River. Total generating capacity : 1450 MW. Height : 163 m & Length : 1,210 m.

6 Hydro Power Development In India : A Bird’s Eye View
Asia’s first Hydro project : Shimsha Power Plant on Shimsha river in Karnataka (17.2 MW) commissioned in 1902. India have built a total 749 dams with total capacity MW. Small hydro project (Capacity up to 25 MW) projects with capacity 2000 MW. Large hydro project (Capacity more than 25 MW) projects with capacity MW.

7 India has developed irrigation projects reservoirs, canals etc, and has created irrigation potential for 42 million hectares (up to ). From 1947(independence) Single Unit size of the hydro generating units in India, have increased from 22 MW to 250 MW now. Around 72 % of Indian population is dependent on agriculture and it contributes 21% to country’s GDP.

8 Growth of Installed Capacity – by 5 Year Plans (MW)

9 Factors Behind Indian Success Story
Skilled Manpower & Technical Institutes Hydro Power Testing Facilities& Engineering excellance Government Regulatory Authorities Government Agencies involved in Hydro Power Development

10 Technical Institutions Providing Hydro Power Studies
Indian Institute of Technology ,Roorkee Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay National Power Training Institute (NPTI), Faridabad. Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. Indian Institute of Technology ,Chennai Birla Institute of Technology, Pilani Institute Of Hydropower Engineering & Technology, Tehri National Institute of Technology (Agartala, Bhopal, Kurukshetra, etc.)

11 Training Centre and Laboratories of Large Hydro Projects
Irrigation Research Institute, Roorkee – For Hydro Model Testing Alternate Hydro Energy Center, Roorkee Water Resources Development Training Centre, Roorkee University of Roorkee - Earthquake Model Testing of Dams Central Water and Power Research Station, Pune National Institute of Hydrology, Roorkee Central Board of Irrigation & Power (CBIP), Delhi Gujarat Engineering Research Institute(GERI), Vadodara Central Power Research Institute (CPRI), Bangalore National Institute of Rock Mechanics (NIRM), Bangalore

12 Government Regulatory Authorities In India
Ministries: Ministry of New & Renewable Energy Ministry of Power Ministry of Environment & Forest Ministry of Water Resources Central Water Commission (CWC) Central Electricity Authority Of India (CEA) Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) State Electricity Regulatory Commission (SERC)

13 Government Agencies Involved in Hydro Power Development
Narmada Hydroelectric Development Corporation Ltd. THDC India Ltd. Damodar Valley Corporation Water and Power Consultancy Services (WAPCOS) National Hydro Electric Power Corporation (NHPC) Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam Ltd. , Himachal Pradesh North Eastern Electric Power Corporation Ltd (NEEPCO) Bhakra Beas Management Board (BBMS)

14 Conclusion India has developed prestigious Hydro projects like Tehri, Bhakra, Indira Sagar, Srisilam etc. India has the skilled manpower, engineering excellence, training institutes and manufacturing units, thus, it can share its expertise for the construction and help in development of Hydro Power Projects in Africa which has high potential in this field. This will give boost to the development of African economy through rapid industrialization and agricultural growth thereby also uplift the social and economical situation to its countrymen.
