If you would like to create an on-campus design project without assistance from the communications and marketing office, please refer to our style guides.

How do I submit a design request?

In order for the communications and marketing office to efficiently process and create your design, we require that all requests be submitted through our Design Project Request Form. Please note that your copy (written word) must be final and approved by all stakeholders before you submit your request as all copy changes will only be made in extenuating circumstances.

Printed materials (posters and flyers) promoting an event must be posted for at least two weeks prior to the event.

Important information to consider before submitting a project request:

  • What are the goals for your project?
  • How will you know if you met your goals? How will you measure your results?
  • Who is your audience? (Be specific -- Current full-time, current part-time, traditional age, etc.)
  • What do you want them to know?
  • When is the event or deadline?

If your request is missing information or is not clear, you will be contacted by a member of the communications and marketing office within two business days letting you know what is still needed.

Please note that the communications and marketing office cannot commit to any timelines before all required information is submitted.

How long will my design request take?

Once you've submitted the form with all required information, we can meet to discuss how long your project will take. Generally, all jobs will take between two-five weeks to complete. Some may be longer or shorter depending on scope.

In addition, this review will be your only chance to suggest or request minor design changes. All design projects represent DVC and as our graphics specialist is the college brand expert, her design decisions are final. Once a design has been implemented, a request for redesign is not an option.

What if I am not able to meet required deadlines?

As the number of design projects we are working on at any given time varies, please submit your project and we will see what we can do.

Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) is an Indian governmental organization which operates in the Damodar River area of West Bengal and Jharkhand states of India. The corporation operates both thermal power stations and hydel powerstations under the Ministry of Power, Govt of India. DVC is headquartered in the city of Kolkata, West Bengal,India.[1]


DVC emerged as a culmination of attempts made over a whole century to control the wild and erratic Damodar River. The valley has been ravaged frequently by floods at varying intensities. Serious floods occurred in 1730, 1823, 1848, 1856, 1882, 1898, 1901, 1916, 1923, 1935 & 1943. The river spans over an area of 25,235 sq. km covering the states of Bihar (now Jharkhand) & West Bengal. The catastrophe caused by the 1943 flood, led to serious public indignation against the Government. As a result, the Government of Bengal appointed a board of Enquiry titled 'Damodar Flood Enquiry Committee'with the Maharaja of Burdwan and the noted physicist Dr. Meghnad Saha as members for suggesting remedial measures.

The Damodar Flood Enquiry Committee suggested the creation of an authority similar to the Tennessee Valley Authority in the USA and recommended the construction of dams and storage reservoirs at the sites with a total capacity of 1.5 million acre-ft. (1.850 million cu. M) and highlighted the possibilities of multipurpose development in the valley area. The Government of India then commissioned the ‘Central Technical Power Board’ to study the proposal and appointed Mr. W L Voorduin, a senior engineer of the TVA to study the problem at the Damodar and to make his recommendation for comprehensive development of the valley. Accordingly, in August 1944 Mr. W L Voorduin submitted his ‘Preliminary Memorandum on the unifiedDevelopment of the Damodar River.’

The books are written for beginning readers (grades K-3), children with learning challenges, and English Language Learners. Testimonials “My seven year old daughter was desperate to read a chapter book,” says Susan S., parent of a struggling reader. “Once we picked up I Wish I Lived In a WorldWhere We Could Fly, she began to read it on. Chapter 2dynamicsmr.'s learning website learning.

Mr. Voorduin's 'Preliminary Memorandum' suggested a multipurpose development plan designed for achieving flood control, irrigation, power generation and navigation in the Damodar Valley. Four consultants appointed by the Government of India examined it. They also approved the main technical features of Voorduin's scheme and recommended early initiation of construction beginning with Tilaiya to be followed by Maithon. By April 1947, full agreement was practically reached between the three Governments of Central, West Bengal and Bihar on the implementation of the scheme and in March 1948, the Damodar Valley Corporation Act (Act No. XIV of 1948) was passed by the Central Legislature, requiring the three Governments, The Central Government and the State Governments of West Bengal and Bihar to participate jointly for the purpose of building the Damodar Valley Corporation. The Corporation came into existence on 7 July 1948 as the first multipurpose river valley project of independent India.

Command area: 24,235 km2 spread across the Damodar basin.Jharkhand: 2 districts fully (Dhanbad and Bokaro) and parts of 8 districts (Hazaribagh, Koderma, Chatra, Palamau, Ranchi, Revanth Loherdaga, Giridih, and Dumka) West Bengal: 6 districts (Purba Bardhhaman, Paschim Bardhhaman, Hoogly, Howrah, Bankura, Purulia)

The Damodar Valley Corporation has been generating and transmitting power since 1953.[citation needed]

DVC developed and expanded its infrastructure to six thermal power stations'(7410 MW)'and three hydro-electric power stations with a capacity of 147.2 MW which contribute to a total installed capacity of 7557.2 MW. Presently DVC has 49 sub-stations and receiving stations more than 8900-circuit km of transmission and distribution lines. DVC has also four dams, a barrage and a network of canals (2494 km) that play an effective role in water management. The construction of check dams, development of forests and farms and upland and wasteland treatment developed by DVC play a vital role in eco conservation and environment management.

Water Management Overview[edit]

DVC has a network of four dams - Tilaiya and Maithon on Barakar River, Panchet on Damodar river and Konar on Konar river. Besides, Durgapur barrage and the canal network, handed over to the Government of West Bengal in 1964, remained a part of the total system of water management. DVC dams are capable of moderating floods of 6.51 lac cusec to 2.5 lac cusecs.

Four multipurpose dams were constructed during the period 1948 to 1959.

Flood reserve capacity of 1,292 mcm has been provided in 4 reservoirs, which can moderate a peak flood of 18,395 cumecs to a safe carrying capacity of 7,076 cumecs. 419 mcm of water is stored in the 4 DVC reservoirs to supply 680 cusecs of water to meet industrial, municipal and domestic requirements in West Bengal & Jharkhand. The Durgapur barrage on river Damodar was constructed in 1955 for the supply of irrigation water to the districts of Burdwan, Bankura & Hooghly.

  • Irrigation Command Area (Gross): 569,000 hectares (5,690 km2)
  • Irrigation Potential Created: 364,000 hectares (3,640 km2)
  • Canals: 2,494 km (1,550 mi)

30,000 hectares (300 km2) of land in the upper valley is being irrigated, every year by lift irrigation with the water available from 16,000 (approx) check dams constructed by DVC.
