Effectiveness of above measure

A qualitative protection with regard to effectiveness of existing remedial measures may be given in brief

1. Inundation of measures is checked to some extant
2. By afforestation soil erosion is checked to some extant

Suggested solutions

1. Dredging of river beds to increase water carrying capacity
2. Stone pilling of banks
3. Construction in vast areas
