    Hyderabad: KT Rama Rao, the MA&UD and IT Minister, announced on Monday the unveiling of the Palamuru Ranga Reddy lift scheme in Telangana. This scheme will bring water to the soil and is being hailed as another Kaleswaram in the state’s irrigation sector. Despite facing obstacles and conspiracies, the KCR government has worked diligently to make this project a reality.

    The Palamuru – Ranga Reddy Lift Irrigation Scheme aims to provide irrigation to upland areas in Mahabubnagar, Rangareddy, and Nalgonda districts. It will cover an area of 4,04,858 hectares and provide drinking water to villages along the way. Additionally, it will supply water for industrial use in these districts and Hyderabad city. The scheme involves lifting 90 TMC (thousand million cubic feet) of floodwater in 60 days during the flood season from the foreshore of Srisailam reservoir to KP Laxmidevipally. The water will then be utilized by gravity.
