    The Telangana government recently presented a report in the assembly that focused on the Kaleswaram project. The report pointed out a few important things. Firstly, it stated that no proper study was conducted on the project and mentioned that it did not effectively address the flooding issue in Maharashtra.

    Additionally, the report disclosed that the Telangana government decided to split the Pranahita-Chevella project into two separate projects: Kaleshwaram and Pranahita. This redesign caused a significant increase in the estimated cost, from 35,000 crores to 85,650 crores.

    Despite the cost of the projects going up by 122 percent, the allocation of funds only increased by 52 percent, according to the report. Furthermore, even after re-engineering, additional changes were made to the project, resulting in the cost of Kaleswaram reaching 47,427 crores, including interest.
