establishing high standards in operation, maintenance, renovation &
modernization of Hydel Projects, Transmission, Canal System & to exploit new

generation are decided by the Interstate Technical Committee in its meeting every month.
Cost effective inventory management, timely preventive maintenance, optimum utilization of human resources and adoption of innovative techniques have made it possible to achieve significant reduction in downtime for maintenance of the generating
machines, thus assuring higher plant availability.
availability of transmission lines of BBMB is also more than 98%.
integrated operation of Multi-purpose reservoirs is an intricate and delicate
function, especially due to
demands of irrigation and power by the Partner States. The divergent views are
not only confined to irrigation
vis-à-vis power releases but there are also varying views regarding the
irrigation releases amongst the Partner States.
The objectives to be achieved for operation of reservoirs are:-
Filling up the reservoirs to
their Maximum Water Levels at the end of filling period after meeting the full
requirements of paddy, maize and other Kharif Crops and ensure better
availability of water during the Rabi Crop period.
Maximising generation to avoid
spilling of water without generation in case the inflows are high.
Resorting to controlled spilling
without causing floods. Maximising generation in case of apprehension of floods
during the later period i.e. reservoirs are not allowed to get filled up quickly
midst heavy monsoon period to obviate the difficulties in flood routing when the
water level in the reservoir is at a higher elevation.

skilled man power and a vast infrastructure, attained during the constructions
