The dam was built under the management of Karnataka Power Corporation Limited (KPCL). The corporation’s work was commendable which not only reduces the huge amount of expenditure over building the dam but also completed the construction work before time. The initial proposed projected budget was Rs. 14.70 Billion which was reduced by KPCL to about 50 percent and finished the work in 6.74 Billion.
