“A great news for people of Goa! I extend my gratitude to the Union Government for meeting one of our crucial demands and giving the approval for the constitution and notifying Mahadayi PRAWAH, as well as for authorising the establishment of its headquarters in Panaji, Goa,” he tweeted.
The notification stated that the Mhadei Water Management Scheme, 2023 has been framed, to constitute the Mhadei PRAWAH (Progressive River Authority for Welfare and Harmony) and notified on May 22.
As per the notification, the Authority will be headed by a chairperson (full-time independent) amongst the serving officers who is an engineer from the Central Water Engineering Service (CWES) cadre of the level of Higher Administrative Grade (HAG) or member, Central Water Commission (CWC) and will be appointed for a term not exceeding three years.
