To establish an effective and sound hydrologic database and Hydrological Information System (HIS), together with the development of consistent and scientifically-based tools and design aids to assist in the effective water resources planning and management within each to the implementing ageneses based on sound scientific driven hydrogeological information and models.
Under the Indian Hydrology Project support program it is aimed to help India develop systems and standardized procedures to manage inter-sectoral water demands more efficiently and equitably - of major benefit to the most vulnerable strata of society - as well as to plan for and manage extreme hydrologic events such as floods and droughts.
The overall Project development objective is to extend and promote the sustained and effective use of information system by all potential users concerned with water resources planning and management thereby contributing to improved productivity and cost effectiveness of water related investments.
The over all impact of the Project would be to help India acquire tools, system and standardized procedures to manage inter-section water demand more efficiently and equitably of major benefit to the most vulnerable strata of society as well as to plan for and manage extreme hydrologic events such as floods and drought.
Water Resources Issues in Chhattisgarh are -

2. Estimation of inflows into the reservoirs.
3. Improving the ground water availability in the semi critical blocks.
4. Drought management in years of below normal monsoon rainfall.
