The study deals with the application of simulation technique in reservoir planning in the context of existing Krishna Raj Sagar reservoir in Karnataka State. The study reveals that a storage capacity of the reservoir of 1200 M.C.M. may even be enough as compared to the existing capacity of 1240 M.C.M. to get more benefit to satisfy the modernisation demand of 1850 M.C.M. without, much irrigation deficit, and spill from the reservoir. The reason being that the high cost of reservoir for greater capacity is out weighing the benefit gain in supplying more water to meet the irrigation deficit.
