It envisages construction of a concrete gravity dam of 65 m (as proposed by THDCIL) from river bed level and an underground Power House. Approx. 9.46 km long HRT has been envisaged to carry the required flow to the Power House. Construction work involves intake canal, pumping stations, pressure main and gravity canals.
