A team of experts from the Irrigation Department and UPPCL will take stock of the canal. After the opinion of experts, a proposal to change the design of the canal will be prepared.

Chairman of Mahamana Malviya Ganga River Development and Water Management Research Center at BHU, Prof. BD Tripathi told that it is the nature of Ganga that she moves forward leaving silt on her left side and sand on her right side. The canal area is an area of ​​sand deposits. The condition of the canal on the sand across the Ganges will be known only after the flood water recedes. Only then it will be known what percentage of sand is deposited in the canal and how much canal is left. If there is even 10 to 25 percent sand in the canal, then the project of the canal on the sand will have to be changed. Because every year there will be additional expenditure for desilting the canal. If the accumulation of sand in the canal is reduced, then the project can be taken forward.
