Ten gates of Majalgaon Dam in Maharashtra's Beed district were opened on Monday morning after heavy rains took the water stock to 100 per cent of capacity from 69.23 per cent a day earlier, an official said.

"The dam has gross storage capacity of 453 million meter cube. The water storage in the dam on Sunday was 69.23 per cent, while it touched 100 per cent as on 3am on Monday due to heavy rains in the past 24 hours.
