Water, as essential as it is for the survival of mankind and livestock, freshwater in the world is limited in its supply. Due to rapid population growth, the demand of water for agriculture, industries, domestic use, power generation, etc., is ever increasing. Moreover, the Spatiotemporal distribution of the precipitation is quite uneven. Due to this uncertainty, the dependency on the storages pertaining to a single basin/sub basin may not assure the planned inflow every year. Some basins may have heavy rainfall/spill and others may have deficit. This flooding and draught have adverse socio-economic impact on developing country such as ours. Recognising this fact Govt. of Maharashtra tasked NWDA (National Water Development Agency) with studying the feasibility of 23 intra-state links proposals to divert the unutilized waters of west flowing rivers i.e Nar, Par, Damanganga, Vaitarna, Ulhas and Patalganga etc. This paper reviews the planning of Nar-Par-Girna interlinking project (DPR cost Rs. 6277.93 Cr. With B. C. ratio of 1.07, and IRR-8.98) in Nashik district of Maharashtra which is planned to stabilise the existing command (56650 Ha) of draught prone areas of Nashik (39626 Ha) and Jalgaon (17024 Ha) district
