Maharashtra Water Resources Regulatory Authority (MWRRA)
At the beginning of this century, the State faced the following problems in the water sector: These problems necessitated a radical change in the approach to water resources development and management in order to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Realising such a need, the state government initiated a number of administrative and legal reforms which constitute broadly what is known as the ‘Water Sector Reforms’. These include the formulation of the comprehensive State Water Policy 2003, implementation of a Water Sector Improvement Project to rehabilitate 286 irrigation projects (major, medium and minor) and the enactment, in March 2005, of two statutes namely the Maharashtra Management of Irrigation Systems by Famers (MMISF) Act and the Maharashtra Water Resources Regulatory Authority (MWRRA) Act.
The MWRRA was established in August 2005 and became operational in mid 2006. The office is located on the 9th floor of the World Trade Centre building at Cuffe Parade in Mumbai.See more
