Mission Kakatiya Comprehensive Restoration of Tanks in Telangana

Mission Kakatiya Comprehensive Restoration of Tanks, The state government’s flagship initiative ‘Mission Kakatiya’ aimed at distillation and restoration of tanks, would bring world-wide glory to Warangal.  

The state Telangana Government would be taking up restoration of 9,000 tanks across the state this year and Rs 2,000 crore was earmarked this year for the project. It was planned to spend Rs 20,000 crore during the next five years for the revival of tanks across the state.

Importance of Tanks in the development of the new state of Telangana
Tanks have been the life line of Telangana owing to the state’s geographical positioning. The people of the state are highly dependent on the tanks which are spread across all the 10 districts. The topography and rainfall pattern in Telangana have made tank irrigation an ideal type of irrigation by storing and regulating water flow for agricultural use.

Construction of tanks in Telangana has been an age old activity since pre Satavahana era. During the Kakatiya era, the construction of tanks was carried out with utmost technical expertise. Tanks such as Ramappa, Pakhala, Laknavaram, Ghanapuram, Bayyaram which were built by Kakatiyas resemble seas and they greatly helped agriculture and overall development and prosperity of the Kakatiya kingdom.

This vision and legacy of Kakatiyas were carried forward by Qutubshahis and Asafjahis who ruled this region for centuries. Hundreds of big and small tanks were built in Telangana region during their rule. Government desires to uphold the vision of Kakatiyas which envisages revival and restoration of Minor Irrigation Sources in Telangana State.

Tank irrigation has huge bearing on generation of rural employment, poverty reduction and agricultural growth. The sheer size of command area under tank irrigation makes it a large center of agricultural production and provides a critical opportunity for commercial agriculture through market linkages.

The Objective Of Mission Kakatiya

The objective of Mission Kakatiya is to enhance the development of agriculture based income for small and marginal farmers, by accelerating the development of minor irrigation infrastructure, strengthening community based irrigation management and adopting a comprehensive programme for restoration of tanks.

The major benefits of the Restoration of Tanks

  • expected gains from irrigated area expansion by covering gap ayacut (i.e. part of the planned area of tanks command that is currently not being covered by irrigation).
  • technology impacts through adoption of resource conservation-cum-production technologies when the project is fully implemented.
  • diversification to cover irrigated area under high-value and low water intensified crops such as chillies, maize and vegetables.
  • development of fisheries.
  • improvement of livestock.
  • reduction in waterlogged area.
  • increase in groundwater levels and water quality there by getting the lands beyond command area under bore well irrigation.
  • power savings due to the reduced need for well irrigation that is currently used to supplement the insufficient tank water. Source: Telangana WebPortal

Union Minister for Water Resources Uma Bharti was invited to launch the programme along with Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao in January, 2015. The work would be completed by May so that the tanks would be ready by the time of arrival of monsoon according to the Officials.

According to Irrigation Minister, the Mission Kakatiya was a noble task and government alone cannot complete the task. It requires the support of all stakeholders.The Minister called upon the stakeholders to take part in the launch of tank restoration works in villages and he said that, the irrigation department decentralised decision making and simplified procedures.
