Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : 1954

The correct answer is 1954.

EXPLANATION:

  • The Kosi project began in 1954 to protect the areas that neighbour Kosi from flooding.
  • A barrage was built and embankments were constructed along its eastern and western banks.

  • The Kosi is a 720 km long trans-boundary river which flows through Nepal, Tibet and India. 
  • It drains the northern slopes in Tibet and southern slopes in Nepal. It is also known as Saptakoshi due to its seven upper tributaries, namely, the Indrawati, the Sun Koshi, the Tama Koshi, the Likhu, the Dudh Koshi, the Arun and the Tamor.
