About Logo Design Competition for National Dam Safety Authority (NDSA)

For centuries, India has mastered the art of harnessing its monsoon rivers through a vast network of dams. These impressive structures capture seasonal torrents, transforming them into a year-round water lifeline for the nation. From boosting food security and fighting droughts to quenching domestic thirst and powering industries, dams are the backbone of India’s development. With thousands of major and minor dams spread across the land, ranking third globally, their impact is undeniable. These concrete arteries stand as a symbol of India’s progress and prosperity, shaping its destiny one drop at a time.


Dam safety has been a major concern in India, with different agencies and organizations managing various aspects of dam construction and maintenance. To address this, the Central Government has established the Central Dam Safety Organization and issued guidelines for integrated dam safety management. A Standing Committee was also formed in 1982 to review existing practices and develop an integrated process for dam safety. This led to the Dam Safety Act, of 2021, which established the National Dam Safety Authority (NDSA) to oversee dam safety in India. These efforts are essential to ensure the safety of India’s vast network of dams, which play a vital role in irrigation, power generation, and flood control.
