Query regarding Mullaperiyar dam and its safety

Is this 120 year old dam safe ? I would like the government of India to have proper backup plan for dam collapse.

Is this 120 year old dam safe? I would like the government of India to have proper backup plan for dam collapse and also a plan for constructing new dams. We cant afford to risk millions of life and keep calm. An earthquake, uninterrupted rains or any natural calamity could lead to a dam burst and wreak havoc. Though current ruling in Supreme Court exists, indicating dam is safe but we need to challenge this judgment. There is a need for an evaluation on condition of dams by an independent organiation at the global level and the report of such study should be presented to the government. Based on the report the government should create backup measures for dam safety of both and existing and proposed dams.
