Small fry to build big canals under Vibrant Gujarat

GANDHINAGAR: Vibrant Gujarat wants to dot some of state's major canal networks, including the Narmada main canal, with mini-micro-hydro power projects. And imagine whom does it propose to choose for this - a company called Krishna Kanhaiya Hydro Power Pvt Ltd, owned by a UK-based NRI Riyen Ramani.

Already, it has earned a contract worth Rs 18 crore to start building mini-microhydro power projects on the canal coming out of Karjan dam, lying dormant for nearly three decades.
