After the Alkananda and the Bhagirathi unite at Devaprayag they from the main stream known as the Ganga. Since 1951 many major irrigation project as have been undertaken, the largest of them are the Sarda Assis project and the Tehri Dam project, Chambal project, the Gandak, Kosi projects, the Damodar valley project, and the Farakka project. Hydroelectric power is a major source of energy in the Ganga River basin and several such projects have been established.
