UDAIPUR: This is yet another test for the 400-year-old Fathesagar lake in Udaipur. The safety and stability of this lake is said to be uncertain due to the unscientific construction of Vibhuti Park' in the "toe" portion of the dam. Fatehsagar is the largest of the lake system of Udaipur and holds about 427 mcft of water now.

Mumbai: The Union minister of state for environment and forest Jairam Ramesh is at it again.

After taking on his cabinet colleagues from the mines, coal, power and surface transport ministries, the no-nonsense minister is now talking tough to the chief ministers of Maharashtra and Rajasthan, both of whom are from the Congress.

The aim of this study is to determine impact of water harvesting structures construction in recent past on inflow capacity of lake Fatehsagar, Udaipur.

The Centre has approved projects for development of Fateh Sagar Lake in Udaipur at a cost of Rs.42 crore and improvement of the Walled City area in Jaipur at a cost of Rs.29 crore. The Centre will bear 70 per cent of the cost of the lake plan under the National Lake Conservation Project.
