The Project received several national level awards for efficient implementation and Singh was also honored with the 'Eminent Engineering Personality' award at national convention of 'Institutions of Engineers' (India) in 2012, at IIT Roorkee for his contribution to its implementation and management.

He has also been conferred with "Chartered Engineer" by Institution of Engineers (India) for this project.
