CENTRAL WATER COMMISSION (CWC)
Central Water Commission is an apex engineering organisation of the Government of India in the field of water resources development. This organisation is primarily responsible for giving technical clearance to all major and medium projects in the water resources sector in the country and ensure the implementation of Government policy in the sphere of water resources development.
CENTRAL ELECTRICITY AUTHORITY (CEA)
This organisation is the premier central organisation in power sector and has built up comprehensive expertise during last five decades Having worked with a number of worlds leading engineering organisations, it has grown in know-how and expertise to tackle all kinds of problems relating to the field of power.
SURVEY OF INDIA (SOI)
The Survey of India established over 225 years ago, is one of the premier survey organisations of the world. SOI undertakes all types of surveys and preparation of precision maps with the most sophisticated equipment, knowhow and experience gathered over the years.
GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF INDIA (GSI)
The Geological Survey of lndia, established in 1851, is a specialised organisation for conducting applied research, investigations, geological exploration and geological mapping for the whole of India. GSl has also developed expertise in engineering geology and geophysics.
CENTRAL PUBLIC HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING ORGANISATION (CPHEEO)
CPHEEO is vested with the responsibility of national level planning, programming and advising various State Governments and Central Agencies/organisations for technical clearance, monitoring and evaluation of plan programmes in the fields of water supply and sewerage. It is also responsible for formulation of various Acts connected with public health services in the country and for bringing out guidelines on urban & rural water supply and sewage treatment and related infrastructure development.
INDIA METEOROLOGICAL DEPARTMENT (IMD)
Established over 200 years back, India Meteorological Department is the principal Government agency entrusted with the task of providing meteorological statistics required for planning of projects and forecast meteorological information for optimum operation of weather sensitive activities.
CENTRAL GROUND WATER BOARD (CGWB)
The Central Ground Water Board is the nations apex body for planning, surveys, exploration, technology development and management of the ground water resources in the country for irrigation and other needs.
INDIAN COUNCIL OF AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH (ICAR)
ICAR, established in 1920, is the national body which coordinates research, education and training in the fields of agriculture, animal husbandry and fisheries. ICAR is directly involved in research through its 31 institutes which undertake research in fundamental and applied agriculture. To deal with problems relating to the states, regions, or specific locations, it operates through 21 agricultural universities as well as public, quasi-public and private institutions.
CENTRAL ROAD RESEARCH INSTITUTE (CRRI)
