Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project near Hyderabad, Telangana


Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project [KLIP] is a multi-reason water system venture on the Godavari River in Kaleshwaram, Bhoopalpally, Telangana, India.This is world's biggest multi-organize lift water system venture. Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project begins at the conjunction purpose of Pranahita River and Godavari River i.e, at Kaleshwaram town in Telangana. Pranahita waterway in itself is a conversion of different other littler tributaries like Wardha, Penganga and Wainganga Rivers.

Connection I : From Medigadda Barrage on Godavari River to Sripada Yellampalli Project

Water is to be turn around siphoned from the juncture purpose of Godavari and Pranhita Rivers to Sripada Yellampalli Project with the assistance of 3 floods (Medigadda, Annaram and Sundilla) and 3 lifts.

At present, lifts are being authorized with arrangement to lift 2 TMC (56,63,36,93,184 litres)[clarification needed] of water every day from Medigadda. The water is lifted to backwaters of Annaram torrent. Again from Annaram torrent to Sundilla flood. At last from Sundilla to Sripada Yellampalli Project. Common works are being executed to lift 3 TMC every day except siphons are being introduced to lift just 2 TMC. On the off chance that need be, just siphons would should be introduced to expand limit by one more TMC.

Connection II : From Sripada Yellampalli Project to Mid Manair Dam

Another adjusting supply is likewise being proposed in the edges of Hyderabad of 20–30 TMC to store water. The water will be provided to this adjusting repository in a similar connection.

Connection V : From Anicut to Chityala

From Anicut, a progression of gravity waterways and a little passage of 1.2 km are wanted to move water to Gandamalla Reservoir and Baswapuram Reservoir. From that point, gravity channels are arranged towards Chityal Mandal and its towns.

Connection VI : From Sri Komaravelli Mallanna Sagar to Singur Dam

From Sri Komaravelli Mallanna Sagar, another grouping of gravity trenches, passages and lifts are utilized to move water to Singur Dam. Aside from that, if need be, water can be moved to Nizam Sagar Project and from that point, to SRSP.

Join the connections and here you have unique framework venture.


This task is confronting a few reactions. In the first place, the principle analysis is gone for its monetary suitability, estimated as far as quantifiable profit. Putting aside the fixed costs, the working expenses include overwhelming uses on keeping up the siphoning stations and the expense of power to run the siphons. Except if the rural advantages gathered to the ranchers are in any event twice to such an extent - if not more - pundits feel the venture isn't legitimized. Second, is there enough stream in the waterway to meet the desires?
