Power generation shut on Narmada dam
Narmada dam authority has shut six 250- MW hydro-power generating turbines for over six months now, causing a sharp drop in power generation as against an all-time high record achieved in 2013-14. The six River Bed Power House (RBPH) turbines, situated on the bed of Narmada river downstream of Sardar Sarovar Dam at Kevadia in Narmada district, have been out of operation since October last year due to poor rainfall recorded last year. This was done to save water for supply to Gujarat and Rajasthan during scarcity this summer for drinking purpose.
