[15], The Rana Pratap Sagar dam is a dam located 52 km downstream of Gandhi Sagar dam on across the Chambal River near Rawatbhata in Chittorgarh district in Rajasthan.

Singh (2007). The reservoir stretch is -km and its surface area at the Full Reservoir Level is 198.29 km2 (76.56 sq mi). [1][2], The direct benefit from the dam is hydropower generation of 172 MW (with four units of 43 MW capacity each) at the dam toe powerhouse adjoining the spillway, with releases received from the Gandhi Sagar Dam and the additional storage created at the dam by the intercepted catchment area. Here the river falls 505 m and then enters a gorge for 113 Kms and leaves it near Kota. In a stretch of 96 km, from km 344 to km 440 from its source, the Chambal flows through a deep gorge, while lower down, there are wide plains. For the next 48 km, the river flows through the Kundal Plateau, and the Rana Pratap Sagar Damis constructed at the lower end of this.

Additional storage at this dam also envisaged increase of irrigation benefits from the Kota barrage from Stage I potential of 445,000 hectares (1,100,000 acres) to 567,000 hectares (1,400,000 acres). The Hague. The Chambal River is used for hydropower generation at Gandhi Sagar dam, Rana Pratap Sagar dam and Jawahar Sagar Dam and for annual irrigation of 5668.01 square kilometres in the commands of the right main canal and the left main canal of the Kota Barrage. Here again, the topography permits fairly good storage upstream of the dam. River Chakan is formed by the confluence of many local nallahs. In Rajasthan, Chambal basin extends to 11 Districts including Chittorgarh, Bhilwara, Bundi, Sawai Madhopur, Tonk, Jhalawar, Kota, Baran, Pratapgarh and Dholpur districts (ref). Water released after power generation at Gandhi Sagar dam, Rana Pratap Sagar dam and Jawahar Sagar Dams, is diverted by Kota Barrage for irrigation in Rajasthan and in Madhya Pradesh through canals on the left and the right sides of the river. The Gandhisagar Dam is located near the center of this reach. At a formal inauguration held on 9 February 1970, the project was dedicated to the nation. The perennial Chambal originates at janapav, south of Mhow town, near manpur Indore, on the south slope of the Vindhya Range in Madhya Pradesh. [15], The ancient name of the Chambal was Charmanvati, meaning the river on whose banks leather is dried. Centre for Studies in Civilizations. [7][8], While the first stage involved construction of the Gandhi Sagar Dam for creation of storage of 7,322,000,000 cubic metres and power generation and utilization of the stored waters for irrigation from the Kota Barrage in Rajasthan was initiated in 1953–54, the second stage development involved utilization of the water released from the Gandhi Sagar Dam through a second dam structure (48 kilometres (30 mi), downstream at Rawatbhata in Chittorgarh District of Rajasthan envisaging additional storage from the intermediate catchment below Gandhi Sagar Dam. Centre for Studies in Civilizations. The catchment area of Mej river extends over Bhilwara, Bundi and Tonk of Rajasthan. Which Dam is the Oldest in the world? The total catchment area of the dam is 27,195 km2, of which only 1,496 km2 are in Rajasthan. From Kota, it makes boundary between Kota and Bundi district and then boundary between Rajasthan and M.P passing through Sawai Madhopur, Karauli and Dholpur. [5], The tributaries of the Chambal include Shipra, Choti Kalisindh, Sivanna, Retam, Ansar, Kalisindh, Banas, Parbati, Seep, Kuwari, Kuno, Alnia, Mej, Chakan, Parwati, Chamla, Gambhir, Lakhunder, Khan, Bangeri, Kedel and Teelar. The nearest railway station is at Kota, which is at a road distance of 59 kilometres (37 mi), from the dam. [7][8], The second stage of development involved the use of the water released from the Gandhi Sagar Dam through another dam structure, the Rana Pratap Sagar Dam, located 48 kilometres (30 mi) downstream of the Gandhi Sagar at Rawatbhata in the Chittorgarh District of Rajasthan. It ends a confluence of five rivers, including the Chambal, Kwari, Yamuna, Sind, Pahuj, at Pachnada near Bhareh in Uttar Pradesh state, at the border of Bhind and Etawah districts.

The power house is located on the left side of the spillway and consists of 4 units of 43 MW each, with firm power generation of 90 MW at 60% load factor. King Drupada ruled the southern Panchalas up to the bank of the Charmanwati river (1:140). The Jawahar Sagar Dam is the third dam in the series of Chambal Valley Projects on the Chambal River, located 29 km upstream of Kota city and 26 km downstream of Rana Pratap Sagar dam. It is a 64 metre high masonry gravity dam, with a live storage capacity of 6,920 Mm 2 and a catchment area of 22,584 km 2.The dam was completed in the year 1960. In addition, a powerhouse at the toe of the dam provides an additional hydroelectric power generation capacity of 172 MW from four turbo generators, of 43 MW capacity each. 2nd Draft. The river enters again MP and flows north for about 24 km before again re-entering Rajasthan near Gordhanpura village in Kota District and joins Chambal river. Hydrology and water resources of India- Volume 57 of Water science and technology library - Tributaries of Yamuna river. It falls for another 195 metres (640 ft) in the next 312 kilometres (194 mi), where it enters the gorge past the Chaurasigarh Fort. At least two erosional surfaces can be recognised within the pediplain are the Tertiary age. It is a legendary river and finds mention in ancient scriptures. [4], The Vindhyan scarps, in the northwest, flank the left bank of the Chambal, and subsequently, is mainly drained by it. and Rajasthan and a further 150 kilometres (93 mi) between M.P. The Chambal remains one of India’s most pristine rivers. The project was completed in 1970. [2] The river reach of 96 kilometres (60 mi) from 344 kilometres (214 mi) to 440 kilometres (270 mi) from its source is a deep gorge section and further downstream there are plains. [6] The river's drop of 625 metres (2,051 ft) between its source in Mhow and the city of Kota, which marks the exit of the river from its gorge section into the plains of Rajasthan, was seen as having great hydroelectric potential. [12], Administrative approval of the Government of India for the establishment of the National Chambal Sanctuary was conveyed in Order No. This planning was done during the First Five-Year Plan, 1951–1956 launched by the Government of India, after India attained independence in August 1947; the Chambal River with annual flow of 3,400,000 acre feet (4.2 km3) had till then remained untapped from any major developmental works. that originates in Sehore district of Madhya Pradesh. [18] Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun, India. It ends at a confluence of five rivers, including the Chambal, Kwari, Yamuna, Sind, Pahuj, at Pachnada near Bhareh in Uttar Pradesh state, at the border of Bhind and Etawah districts. It flow for 48 km in MP before entering Rajasthan near Museri village in Baran District. In this reach, it is bounded by the Aravalli mountain ranges on the North and the Vindhyan hill range on the south. The water conductor system consists of penstock pipes (of 20 ft (6.1 m) diameter) from the dam to feed the four power plants (turbo-generators) and a tailrace tunnel of 1,450 m (4,760 ft) length and diameter 12 m (39 ft), to lead the water back to the Chambal River. 1993.
