Kaleshwaram Lift irrigation project UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • The CAG of India said that the project cost of the Kaleshwaram lift irrigation project in Telangana is likely to exceed ₹1.47 lakh crore

  • The cost was understated in the Detailed Project Report due to preparation of estimates at old price levels and non-inclusion of provision for price escalation

  • This, coupled with subsequent changes made in the works, resulted in the cost of works increasing.
