NCRMP (National Cyclone Risk Mitigation Project)

In the three coastal districts of West Bengal i.e. South 24-Pgs., North 24-Pgs. and Purba Medinapur 150 Nos. of Multipurpose Cyclone Shelters are proposed to be constructed under the scheme NCRMP with World Bank aided fund and State Fund (25%) Initially a Central Government undertaking, Hindusthan Steelworks Construction Limited were assigned for the preparation of Detail Project Report with Investment proposal, but they were discontinued in the midway. Costal Regulation Zone (CRZ) clearance, Environment Impact Assessment and Social screening were obtained for all the 150 number sites.
However during approval of the model D.P.R prepared by H.S.C.L, the World Bank suggested some changes in the D.P.R
Accordingly arrangement was made to prepare fresh D.P.R by Jadavpur University. For preparation of fresh D.P.R assessment of availabilities of sites for the proposed construction was made, it was found that some of the sites have been changed and some new sites were identified for the scheme.
As per final list of sites prepared by the district authorities it is found only 69 No. of sites are common with original list and 81 sites are new. In the revised list of sites soil testing works were done only for 16 sites.
Jadavpur University has prepared preliminary drawing and design of six types of cyclone shelter which were approved by this department but could not be finalized as the sites have not been finalized yet.
The following actions are required to be taken up before finalization of the scheme.

4. Total station survey, soil investigation for the sites.
