This three-book volume series aims to describe and document the processes of evolution and the contribution of the Sardar Sarovar Project (SSP) on Narmada River in Gujarat. The SSP has a long and interesting history witnessing multifaceted issues over the last 65 years; the last decade of which has resolution of many of the matters relating to construction of the dam.
