    Mission Kakatiya programme has helped revive the abandoned water bodies and ponds in Telangana, providing irrigation and addressing drinking water issues in villages. The irrigation system developed through the chain of ponds during the Kakatiya rule has become vital for Telangana. The State government launched Mission Kakatiya in memory of the Kakatiyas to revive ponds. More than 47,000 ponds across the State have been restored, pond embankments strengthened, canals and culverts repaired, and silt removed. The storage capacity of ponds in Telangana has increased significantly.

    An amount of Rs 5,350 crore has been spent on reviving ponds, construction of extensive check dams and rejuvenating streams. Around 15 lakh acre ayacut is being irrigated under the revived ponds. The government has taken up construction of 1,200 check dams at a cost of Rs.3,825 crore. The first phase of construction of 650 check dams has been completed; works of other check dams are in progress. The government has taken measures to divert water from large and medium-scale projects to ponds restored under Mission Kakatiya through canals and ensured that they are full even in dry season.
