India's Central Water Commission has signed a pair of memorandums of understanding that will support dam safety and repair initiatives.

The agreements, signed with the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras and the Indian Institute of Science-Bengaluru, will "help them for the procurement of specified equipment and software for enhancing their capability to support dam rehabilitation efforts," according to CWC.

The universities were selected through coordination with India's Ministry of Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation as part of the Dam Rehabilitation and Improvement Project (DRIP).

CWC said the memorandums will improve testing laboratories, enhance analytical capabilities, create opportunities for international collaboration and increase faculty.

DRIP is a World Bank-assisted initiative that is expected to provide rehabilitations and improvements at more than 250 dams in India's Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Tamil Nadu and Uttarakhand states.
