This paper presents a survey report of hydro power plant in India. There are various renewable energy resources like sun, wind, water, ocean, tidal etc. Among all the source, hydro plant are emerging in the developing India. After non-renewable source like fossil fuel and nuclear, major part of the India is looking for the green energy. So for a long run point of view India Government have passed various plan and policy for the development of hydro plant where water is the main source and electricity is obtain from the flow of water. . There are various factor to be considered to run and develop a hydro plant. The plant run need a systematic process which are discuss in the paper. This paper also include the major hydro project of India.
