The National Dam Safety Authority, which seeks to maintain standards related to dam safety, prevent dam-related disasters and resolve inter-state issues in this regard, has come into force from Friday.

The Dam Safety Act, passed by Parliament on December 8 last year, states that a National Dam Safety Authority will liaise with state-level dam safety organisations and owners of dams for standardising safety-related data and practices.
