Khadakwasla, Panshet, Varasgaon, and Temghar dams witnessed an impressive increase of 5%, reaching 42% of their total capacity.

Similarly, Pawana and Mulshi dams experienced an 8% surge, reaching 48% and 38% of their storage capacity, respectively. This rise comes as a relief for the water-scarce areas.
