The mighty rivers like Ganga and Yamuna have tributaries like Alaknanda, Bhilangana, Mandakini and Tons etc. in addition it has the upper course of rivers like Sharda and Ram Ganga which also have power potential.
Not only power but as a result of harnessing the power projects activities like fisheries, flood control, Irrigation and storage will get boosted up bringing more revenue and employment to the local people apart from safety from natural disasters.
