The Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project or KLIP is a multi-purpose irrigation project on the GodavariRiver in Kaleshwaram, Bhupalpally, Telangana. Currently the world’s largest multi-stage lift irrigationproject, its farthest upstream influence is at the confluence of the Pranhita and Godavari rivers. ThePranahita River is itself a confluence of various smaller tributaries including the Wardha, Painganga,and Wainganga rivers which combine to form the seventh-largest drainage basin on the subcontinent,with an estimated annual discharge of more than 7,930 cubic hectometres or 280TMC. It remains untapped as its course is principally through dense forests and other ecologicallysensitive zones such as wildlife sanctuaries.

The Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project is divided into 7links and 28 packages spanning a distance of approximately 500 km through 13 districts andutilizing a canal network of more than 1,800 km. The project aims to produce a total of 240TMC (195 from Medigadda Barrage, 20 from Sripada Yellampalli project and 25 from groundwater),of which 169 has been allocated for irrigation, 30 for Hyderabad municipal water, 16 for miscellaneousindustrial uses and 10 for drinking water in nearby villages, with the remainder being estimatedevaporation loss.

The project aims at increasing total culturable command area (the sustainable areawhich can be irrigated after accounting for both upstream and downstream factors) by 2,251 hm3 across all 13 districts in addition to stabilizing the existing CCA.

On 21 June 2019, theproject was opened by Telangana governor Narasimhan and chief ministers K. Chandrashekar Rao(Telangana), Fadnavis (Maharashtra) and Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy (Andhra Pradesh ).

Four majorpumping facilities manage the project’s outflow, the largest at Ramadugu (Medaram, Annaram andSundilla being the others) is also likely to be the largest in Asia once consistent measurements areavailable, requiring seven 140 MWh pumps designed and manufactured specifically for theproject by the BHEL.
