Mahadayi River UPSC NOTE


Mahadayi river

  • Mahadayi river originates in the Western Ghats, from the Bhimgad Wildlife Sanctuary in Khanapur taluk of Karnataka Belagavi district.

  • Flowing westward, it enters Goa from the Sattari taluk of North Goa districts.

  • A number of streams join the flow of the river to form the Mandovi which is one of two major rivers that flow through Goa.

  • It joins the Arabian Sea at Panaji.

  • The Mahadayi river, also spelt Mhadei or Mahadeyi, stretches 111-km. Over two-thirds of the river’s stretch lies in Goa (76 km).

Kalasa-Banduri Nala project

  • Kalasa and Banduri tributaries of the Mahadayi (Mandovi) river.

  • The Kalasa Banduri Nala project aims to divert water from Mahadayi to satisfy the drinking water needs of Belagavi, Dharwad, Bagalkot and Gadag districts.

  • A conflict between Karnataka, Goa, and Maharashtra has prevented the project from moving forward even though it was first planned in the early 1980s.

  • In November 2010, the UPA government at the Centre had set up a tribunal to settle disputes between Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra. 

  • In 2018, the tribunal awarded 13.42 TMC water from Mahadayi river basin to Karnataka, 1.33 TMC to Maharashtra and 24 TMC to Goa. 

  • The same was notified by the Union Government in February 2020.
