World’s Largest Lift Irrigation Project | Kaleshwaram

Kaleshwaram Project

The Kaleshwaram project is an off-shoot of the original Pranahitha-Chevella Lift Irrigation Scheme taken up by the Congress government in 2007 when Andhra Pradesh was not divided.

After formation of the Youngest State of India Telangana in 2014, the elected Telangana Rastra Samithi government changes the design of the project because of the original plan had many environmental issues and had very less TMC water storage provision — only around 16.5 tmc ft.

After conduction of the advanced and quality Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) survey for a around a year, the TRS government separated the original component serving the district Adilabad area as the Pranahitha project and renamed the rest as Kaleshwaram by redesigning the head works of the project.
