INTRODUCTION

Urbanization is an index of transformation from traditional rural economies to modern industrial one. It is a progressive concentration of population in urban unit. During the last fifty years the population of India has grown two and a half times, but urban India has increased nearly five times. Urban Local Bodies handle a vast amount and variety of information in the form of maps and documents but in India it is mostly in paper form. Presently the biggest challenge faced by every local governing authority is absence of latest updated and accurate data. The detailed maps depicting transportation network, water bodies, plot and survey layout, building footprints, drinking water supply network, sewage and storm water network, utility lines, locations of solid waste containers & waste disposal plant, etc. are the basic need for all the departments of ULBs that are involved in planning, execution and maintenance of such facilities. Geoinformatics is a comprehensive solution to all the present challenges. Technological growth especially Information Technology and e-governance, in India, are ironical to each other. e-governance in India is still confronting many challenges such as lack of funds to acquire the relevant technology & requisite hardware, lack of IT literacy amongst the workforce, lack of stringent cyber laws, lack of integration of interdependent datasets, etc. This results in delays in decision making and in turn overall development. This can be avoided through systematic and digital handling of the data. Government schemes viz AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation) & Smart City can effectively utilize these Geoinformatics Technologies.

INTRODUCTION

Contract Management is a separate and important discipline of Project Management. It is in fact an emerging discipline which is a blend of administrative, technical and legal aspects. Many of the problems in the Management and Administration of Contracts arise from the attitude of the owner’s engineers and the contractor towards each other and to the work. Though both the parties appreciate that they have a common objective of completing the work within the time specified and the rates quoted. It is imperative that during the implementation of the contract, both have to work towards fulfillment of the objectives. It will be in the best interest of the project that the Contract Management is handled by the owner or the appropriate authority with tact and care without getting into unnecessary disputes with the contractor or allowing undue benefits or advantages to him. The whole process should be gone through under the provisions of the Indian Contract Act, 1872 (amended by Act No.4 of 2003) and The Arbitration & Conciliation Act 1996. The price of good Contract Implementation is indeed Eternal Vigilance.

INTRODUCTION

Tanks have traditionally played an important role in irrigation, drinking water supply, ecology, tourism /
culture and domestic use. Over a time the relative importance of some of these water bodies has
waned. These storages are complex and multifunctional entities that provided livelihood support in a
number of ways to the villagers and are increasingly being recognized to play an important role in the
water sector. However tanks are often treated in isolation from other sources, and are seen mainly as
irrigation sources and efforts at their rehabilitation do not adequately prioritize institutional and
biophysical measures.
There are about 798,000 tanks in India, and 120,000 are found in southern peninsula (Andhra
Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and union territory of Pondicherry). They account for 60% of the
tank-irrigation (1.8 million hectares) in India. Connectivity of these tanks facilitates effective use of
water in arid and semi-arid regions. These were developed and implemented so as to follow better
management practices aimed at improving effective use / sharing of water, as risk minimization
process during drought situations. Present decline in the use of traditional tanks storage is due to
many reasons (i.e) availability of alternate source of irrigation reservoir, canal, lift irrigation, siltation &
encroachments of existing tanks etc. besides neglect of traditional community irrigation systems.
Repair Renovation & Rehabilitation of Tanks needs to be from an IWRM perspective that takes care of
their multi-funtionality as well as their relationship with larger sources. Comprehensive improvement of
selected tank systems including restoration with catchment interventions may be necessary.

INTRODUCTION

More than 4500 large dams spending enormous amounts have been constructed across the country since independence. In addition to these dams, there were also few dams constructed prior to independence era. By and large all these dams are performing well, except very few failures. The dams which were constructed long back with the data, design and construction technologies available at that time are to be reviewed in view of the changes in the hydrological inputs, latest design parameters and other technological advancements in terms of Dam Safety Bill 2010 and necessary steps are to be taken to sustain the safety of the dams. However, the Engineers in-charge of the dams should also develop emergency action plans for the dams under their control and implement the same as the situation demands in case of failure. The Dam Safety Bill clearly indicated the institutional mechanism at Central and State level detailing their duties and functions to be discharged by them including the obligation for emergency action plan and disaster management. The dam safety procedures as well as preparation and implementation of emergency action plan should be reviewed periodically and suitably updated based on the latest data and technological advancement including situation demands. The most important activities associated with dam safety are operation & maintenance, regular inspections, proper surveillance and immediate follow up action on the suggestions and recommendations of the inspecting team. Prevention of failures is always appreciated which saves the community from loss of human life, livestock as well as property in addition to intangible grief and distress.
