The Saurashtra Narmada Avtaran Irrigation – SAUNI project was launched by PM Modi in September 2012.
Talking about the project, it will help divert the flood water from the Sardar Sarovar Dam to several dams of the water scarce Saurasthra region through a network of canal and pipelines.
This scheme would help irrigate nearly 4.13 lakh hectares land in draught prone Saurashtra.
