Every year in Assam, the recurring problem of flood and erosion causes huge loss to life and property in the State. With thousands of people left homeless in inundated areas and several hectares of agricultural land being destroyed, flood has left a huge dent in the socio-economic structure of the State.

With the objective of permanently solving the problem of flood and erosion in the State, Government of Assam has decided that dredging will be carried out in the riverbeds and tributaries of Brahmaputra and Barak from this month onwards. The Central Government has also directed a committee with a budget of Rs. 100 cr. to study the Brahmaputra River and its tributaries, so that a feasible solution could be found. This will help in strengthening the condition of existing embankments along with expanding rural connectivity.

The government of Assam seeks suggestions/inputs from its citizen to arrive at a permanent solution to control flood and erosion in the State.
