For this, the MES has over six hundred stations spread across the mainland and the island territories of India. MES is a military organisation but has both Army and Civilian components of officers and other subordinate staff.The “Army in India” Committee (1919-20) placed the Military Works under the QuarterMaster General and the Sappers and Miners under the Chief of the General Staff. The two engineering wings were combined under the Engineer-in- Chief. The MES was formed in December 1923 with the Engineer-in- Chief as the Head. Initially, it comprised personnel exclusively from Corps of Engineers, but later attained composite character by inducting civilians. Post- independence the post of DGW was created and the service was organized under the Chief Engineers Zones in 1964.The MES also contributed significantly towards nation building and disaster mitigation. MES has been entrusted with a number of important projects, vital for the operational efficiency of the Defence Forces which includes important infrastructure projects of the three Services and also projects like the National War Memorial etc. As part of environmental initiatives, MES is undertaking several measures in the field of energy conservation, use of renewable energy and green technology. Solar energy power projects are being undertaken in various parts of the country. GRIHA norms are being mandated and use of LED lighting is being implemented in all projects to ensure energy efficient and environment friendly buildings in future. During two major natural disasters faced by the country i.e. Cyclone ‘HUD HUD’ and the floods in Jammu and Kashmir, which caused extensive damages in the stations, the MES stood up to the occasion and promptly restored the external services. MES teams also provided valuable technical assistance during the Nepal Earthquake for early restoration of electric supply.
(3) FARAKKA BARRAGE PROJECT:
Farakka Barrage Project with headquarters at Farakka in Murshidabad district of West Bengal is a subordinate office under the Union Ministry of Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation. The Farakka Barrage Project Authority was set up in 1961 with the mandate to execute and thereafter operate and maintain the Farakka Barrage Project Complex comprising Farakka Barrage, Jangipur Barrage, Feeder Canal, Navigation Lock and associated structures. The Barrage comprises 112 nos. of Gates (108 Nos. main Gates and 4 Nos. Fish Lock Gates) and 11 Nos. Head Regulator Gates for diversion of approximately 40,000 cusec (1035 cumec) of discharge into the Feeder Canal. The project construction commenced in 1961 and the project was commissioned and dedicated to the Nation in May 1975.Main objective of the Farakka Barrage Project complex is to divert adequate quantity of Ganga waters to Bhagirathi-Hooghly river system through 38.38 km long feeder canal for preservation and maintenance of Kolkata Port by improving the regime and navigability of the Bhagirathi-Hooghly river system. The increased upland supply from Ganga at Farakka into Bhagirathi reduces salinity and ensures sweet water supply to Kolkata and surrounding areas. The rail-cum-road bridge built across the river Ganga at Farakka establishes direct road and rail communication link to the North-Eastern Region with the rest of the country. The Hooghly-Bhagirathi river system, the Feeder Canal and the Navigation Lock at Farakka form part of the Haldia-Allahabad Inland Waterway (National Waterway No:1). The Feeder Canal also supplies water to 2100 MW Farakka Super Thermal Power Project (FSTPP) of NTPC Ltd. at Farakka.
