Telangana intensifies efforts for clearances to Palamuru-Rangareddy project.
After getting all major clearances to Kaleshwaram irrigation project, the State Government has turned its focus on clearing the hurdles for Palamuru-Ranga Reddy lift irrigation project by taking up its plea for first stage forest clearance.

Chief Engineer of the project V. Lingaraju is in Delhi till February 1 for pursing the stage-one forest clearance for the acquisition of forest land needed for the project. Keeping aside the three packages, works in which could not make headway due to cases filed in the National Green Tribunal, works in the remaining 18 packages have been making steady progress.

According to officials, Palamuru-Ranga Reddy would be the major project in the country with least submergence and least environmental damage in spite of it having major balancing reservoirs with a storage capacity of 67.85 TMC ft put together at Narlapur, Yedula, Vattem, Karivena, Uddandapur and Laximdevipally. The total displacement, in terms of houses, was only 2,450 for the entire project, the officials said.

In spite of legal hurdles in between, works on Yedula reservoir were completed to the extent of about 90% and Irrigation Minister T. Harish Rao has fixed a time for completing the remaining works by March 31. Works in another three packages of Vattem reservoir were also making a swift progress, Mr. Harish Rao said after visiting works at Vattem on Monday.

On the progress of Karivena reservoir the minister said of the 5,617 acres land required only 400 acres was yet to be acquired. He directed the officials to speed up land acquisition by speeding up payment of compensation and other relief and rehabilitation works as being sought by the displaced people. The minister noted that the public hearing as part of the process of environmental clearance would be held soon.

Officials stated that pumps with 145 MW capacity, higher than the ones being used for Kaleshwaram with a maximum of 139 MW, would be used for Palamuru-Ranga Reddy project. At total of 31 pumps would be installed at four pumping stations to lift two TMC ft of water from the foreshores of Srisailam reservoir every day for 60 flood days in a year to irrigate 12.3 lakh acres including 7 lakh acres in erstwhile Mahabubnagar, 5 lakh acres in Ranga Reddy and 0.30 lakh acres in erstwhile Nalgonda district.
