Correct Answer - Option 2 : Assam

The correct answer is Assam.

  • The Subansiri Lower Dam, also known as the Subansiri Lower Hydroelectric Project (SLHEP), is a gravity dam on the Subansiri River in NorthEastern India that is currently under construction.
  • It's 2.3 kilometres (1.4 miles) upstream of Gerukamukh village in Dhemaji District and Lower Subansiri District, on the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border.
  • The project, which NHPC Limited describes as a run-of-the-river project, is expected to generate 2,000 MW of power when completed.
  • The concrete gravity dam will stand 116 metres (381 feet) tall from the riverbed and 130 metres (430 feet) tall from the base.
  • It will be 284 metres (932 feet) long, with a structural volume of 2,250,000 m3.
  • Several organisations, including the All Assam Students' Union and the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti, have voiced concerns about the project's safety and its downstream effects.
