The CCA of the project is 13,000 hectare ( 11,000 hectare of Kole land which is below sea level and 2000 hectare of other land) and GCA is 35,700 hectare. The project stabilizes irrigation in an area of 14,500 hectare and provides irrigation to an additional area of 10,500 hectare. Paddy is the main cultivation in the land. The main components of the project are as under:
