Ashwati V. Guldekar, Amit B. Ranit
Abstract: Construction, in one form or the other, has been practiced since the dawn of civilization. In India, construction industry is the second largest industry next to agriculture. The importance of construction can be gauged from the simple fact that cost of construction of certain infrastructure projects may be as high as 60- 80 percent of the project cost. In this vast country, irrigation in various forms has been practiced for ages and a large number of various types of old irrigation systems are still in operation with their own well- established irrigation practices evolved out of experience. Irrigation projects in construction industry contribute to the prosperity of the state. Evaluation of irrigation projects involves enormous expenditure. They are time bound programme and require assistance from various technical bodies for investigation, design, planning and execution. In this research 07 project site were visited. Further study was done to extract the factors, especially the factors that give rise to delay in construction which further affects the quality management. A total of 42 factors were extracted and were divided into 04 groups. These groups were general, materials and equipments, management and others. Ranking of factors were done using relative importance index (RII) method.
