        The Water storage available in 91 major reservoirs of the country for the week ending on 25 January 2017 was 80.597 BCM, which is 51 percent of total storage capacity of these reservoirs. This was 127 percent of the storage of corresponding period of last year and 100 percent of storage of average of last ten years.

        The total storage capacity of these 91 reservoirs is 157.799 BCM which is about 62 percent of the total storage capacity of 253.388 BCM which is estimated to have been created in the country. 37 Reservoirs out of these 91 have hydropower benefit with installed capacity of more than 60 MW.

        REGION WISE STORAGE STATUS:-

        NORTHERN REGION

        The northern region includes States of Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Rajasthan. There are 6 reservoirs under CWC monitoring having total live storage capacity of 18.01 BCM. As per Reservoir Storage Bulletin dated 25 January 2017, the total live storage available in these reservoirs is 7.02 BCM which is 39 percent of total live storage capacity of these reservoirs.

        The storage during corresponding period of last year was 46 percent and average storage of last ten years during corresponding period was 47 percent of live storage capacity of these reservoirs. Thus, storage during current year is less than the corresponding period of last year and is also less than the average storage of last ten years during the corresponding period.

        EASTERN REGION

        The Eastern region includes States of Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal and Tripura. There are 15 reservoirs under CWC monitoring having total live storage capacity of 18.83 BCM. As per Reservoir Storage Bulletin dated 25 January 2017, the total live storage available in these reservoirs is 13.73 BCM which is 73 percent of total live storage capacity of these reservoirs.

        The storage during corresponding period of last year was 54 percent and average storage of last ten years during corresponding period was 61 percent of live storage capacity of these reservoirs. Thus, storage during current year is better than the corresponding period of last year and is also better than the average storage of last ten years during the corresponding period.

        WESTERN REGION

        The Western region includes States of Gujarat and Maharashtra. There are 27 reservoirs under CWC monitoring having total live storage capacity of 27.07 BCM. As per Reservoir Storage Bulletin dated 25 January 2017, the total live storage available in these reservoirs is 17.25 BCM which is 64 percent of total live storage capacity of these reservoirs.

        The storage during corresponding period of last year was 36 percent and average storage of last ten years during corresponding period was 60 percent of live storage capacity of these reservoirs. Thus, storage during current year is better than the storage of last year and is also better than the average storage of last ten years during the corresponding period.

        CENTRAL REGION

        The Central region includes States of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. There are 12 reservoirs under CWC monitoring having total live storage capacity of 42.30 BCM. As per Reservoir Storage Bulletin dated 25 January 2017, the total live storage available in these reservoirs is 27.67 BCM which is 65 percent of total live storage capacity of these reservoirs.

        The storage during corresponding period of last year was 50 percent and average storage of last ten years during corresponding period was 46 percent of live storage capacity of these reservoirs. Thus, storage during current year is better than the storage of last year and is also better than the average storage of last ten years during the corresponding period.

        SOUTHERN REGION

        The Southern region includes States of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, AP&TG(Two combined projects in both states) Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. There are 31 reservoirs under CWC monitoring having total live storage capacity of 51.59 BCM. As per Reservoir Storage Bulletin dated 25 January 2017, the total live storage available in these reservoirs is 14.93 BCM which is 29 percent of total live storage capacity of these reservoirs.

        The storage during corresponding period of last year was 27 percent and average storage of last ten years during corresponding period was 49 percent of live storage capacity of these reservoirs. Thus, storage during current year is better than the corresponding period of last year but is less than the average storage of last ten years during the corresponding period.

        States having better storage than last year for corresponding period are Punjab, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, AP&TG (Two combined projects in both states) and Telangana.

        States having equal storage than last year for corresponding period are Uttarakhand and Karnataka. States having lesser storage than last year for corresponding period are Himachal Pradesh, Tripura, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
