Parambikulam Aliyar Project is a complex system involves 3 river basins with 10 big & small reservoirs, 2 wires, an interconnect system of 50 km length with contour canal & tunnels, 8 HE Projects with more than 655 MW.

The project itself an engineering marvel

The space restriction of the edit page of @the_hindu@twitter.com is not permitting even to give a brief description of this complex engineering marvel. It is ripe for a long form article :)
