Mihir Shah committee
The Mihir Shah committee, which was formed to restructure the water agencies, is recently in news because of its recommendations to set up new National Water Commission (NWC). As per the recommendations, NWC will be an autonomous body and will have a countrywide base and mandate and greater human-power. The committee has also warned against the perils of interlinking of rivers and dependence on large dam projects. Beside this, the committee has also suggested that there is no need to restructure water agencies viz. Central Water Commission (CWC) and the Central Ground Water Board (CGWB). The committee was set up by the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, which has submitted its report in July 2016.
