Project Abstract Project Abstract

16 towns were divided into 3 packages. 3 Consultancy firms have been appointed by following KTPP act. The Contract Agreement is signed by all consultants. The selected consultancy firms are as follows:

  • M/s Voyants Solutions Pvt. Ltd., Package – I (6 towns viz. Gajendragad, Naregal, Mundargi, Bankapur, Alnavar & Mulki)
  • M/s CDM Smith India Private Limited Package – II (5 towns viz. Kampli, Tekkalakote, Kottur, Kamalapura & Molakalmur).
  • M/s Tata Consulting Engineers Limited Package – III (5 towns viz. Mahalingapura, Teredal, Mudagal, Kudachi & Shiralkoppa)

Out of the above 16 towns, KUWSDB had executed the water supply schemes in Gajendragad, Naregal, Bankapur, Alnavar & by RDPR in Molakalmur. •The Consultants had submitted the Final DPRs for Water Supply of (1) Kottur (2) Kamalapura (3) Kampli (4) Kudachi (5)Mulki (6) Tekkalakote (7) Mundargi (8) Teredal (9) Mudagal & (10) Mahalingapura have been submitted which were accorded Technical sanction by the Chief Engineer, NKUSIP. The DPR of shirolkoppa was not prepared due to insufficient source of water.

In the 2nd Empowered committee meeting held on 16.07.2015 under the chairmanship of Additional Chief Secretary, GoK, the Committee felt that, for the purpose of synergy and co-ordination, KUWSDB can take up distribution network in all the 16 towns & resolved to transfer the 16 town project along with the appointed Design and construction Supervision Consultant, and the allocation made in the budget towards the project to KUWS&DB, in order to avoid duplication of works.

A meeting was held under the chairmanship of the Additional Chief Secretary, UDD, GoK, on 19.03.2016 with Managing Director, KUWSDB & Managing Director, KUIDFC & after detailed discussion a Government letter (with the proceedings) was issued to KUIDFC to take up the project of 16 towns. Requesting again for cabinet approval for transfer the project to KUWSDB may take lot of time. Since, it has already been delayed by nearly one year and the priority of the GoK is to provide Water Supply to all the Urban areas it was directed that the balance 11 towns where technical sanction has been obtained to be executed through KUIDFC at the earliest.

Further, a meeting was also convened under the chairmanship of MD, KUIDFC with the stake holders, ULB President/ ULB officials and the consultants on 12.04.2016 to discuss about the provisions made in the DPRs. The representatives of Kudachi & Kamlapura opted out of the project as they had sufficient water. Thus out of 16 towns only 9 towns remained.

The stake holders in the meeting held on 12.04.2016 had requested to make some more additional essential provisions in the DPRs like construction of Impounding Reservoir, WTP, parallel Transmission main etc., which will increase the cost of the DPRs and also increase the cost due to the revision in the schedule of rates. The consultants have submitted the revised DPRs of 8 towns after revisiting the towns along with the AEE’s of the RO, Hubli. Technical approval was accorded by the Chief Engineer, NKUSIP to the revised DPRs.

Accordingly, the same was placed before the 3rd Empowered Committee meeting held on 27.05.2016 and it was resolved that, KUIDFC to implement the Water Supply Scheme for balance 9 towns & drop the 7 Towns along with UGD from the project and as per the power vested in the Government Order dated 20-11-2012, the Empowered Committee resolved to inter allocate the funds from one component to another or from one town to another, which is well within the allocated amount of Rs. 205.87 crores.

Since the “Implementation of water supply & UGD of 16 towns” was approved in the cabinet, the proposal of dropping of seven towns and UGD was placed before the Cabinet for approval.

Government Order No.UDD 14 PRJ 2012, Bangalore, dated: 06-04-17, was issued & has accorded sanction for implementing water supply in 9 towns at an estimated cost of Rs. 205.87 cr.
