The Jamrar dam is being built in the Mehroni Tehsil of Lalitpur district of Uttar Pradesh Bundelkhand.  The project was supposed to be started in 2009 and finished by 2011 but due to administrative delay, it could only start in 2012. Farm land of 15 villages was acquired for the project and cost soared to 329.15 crores from the planned cost of 172 crores. Affected 116 families have been agitating to receive the compensation and the alternative housing plots promised by the administration. Farmers fight of getting adequate compensation has now reached the high court. The dam is going to be 3.5 km long with a crop irrigation capacity of more than 3000 hectares.
