Abstract: The thesis seeks to understand whether the process of change in water access regime because of proposed Kharun Riverfront Development (KRDP) near Raipur city and existing related interventions conforms to hydroinclusion or not? It simultaneously tries to build on the concepts of inclusiveness and inclusive development by focusing on water access regime, thereby building a framework to understand the phenomena of hydroinclusion as well as hydroexclusion. Although there is literature on water security, specific branch of ‘water access’ in terms of inclusive development has not been elaborated by existing literature. Hence, by integrating these concepts it seeks to understand whether development projects on a water bodies and water resource, like KRDP in case of Kharun River and its waters, ensures inclusion of stakeholders who are at risk of marginalization and exclusion in terms of access to water. Emphasis is laid on access and use of river’s water and riverine land, which are crucial key in sustaining lives and livelihoods and, important for human well being. In order to understand the process of change in water access regime it also attempts to understand the strategies of state while challenging the existing water access regime and, the role of incumbents (those constituting of current regime). What are the intentions of challenger-state and its actors? Why do they want to change the regime? Which are the proposed uses for which they want to accommodate a new access regime? These are some of the questions addressed in order to understand whether the process conforms to hydroinclusion. With the understanding of proposed change and further attempts to challenge and change the regime and, covert interests, probable implications on land and livelihoods are speculated on the basis of perceptions of people and present situation of land-use and livelihoods in the case.
