The project is intended to create irrigation potential to an extent of about 62,280 Acres in 7 mandals of about 165 villages in Pathapatnam, Amadalavalasa & Srikakulam Constituencies of Srikakulam District utilizing 7.353 TMC of water.
The project comprised of construction Head Regulator, etc., construction Right Main Canal for a length of 52.973Km with 1R, 37TE distributories and field channels.

An expenditure of Rs. 145.906 Cores was incurred under the Project. An irrigation potential of 62,280 acres was created by Khariff 2012.
Administrative approval was accorded to Project revised estimate by the Government of an amount Rs. 209.00 Crores vide G.O. Rt. No. 734, dated 27.12.2011 and the new / additional imperative works like CC lining of Canal at vulnerable reaches, protection walls etc. are under progress.
