Under the third phase of Mission Kakatiya programme, the irrigation department will take up restoration of as many as  500 tanks and construction of 70 new tanks.
Under the third phase, which will be beginning in January, the irrigation department planned to take up five types of works in the absence of major restoration works. First, the feeder channels which will supply water to tanks will be revived. It is proposed to restore these feeder channels by constructing walls and also modernising the diversion channels. Only 500 tanks will be restored mostly in Mahbubnagar and Karimnagar districts where there were no rains. The restoration works up under Mission Kakatiya first and second phases will be completed in third.
According to sources, around 70 new tanks will be constructed in 1,500 to 2,000 acres of land in Adilabad and Khammam districts. Hydrological clearances for these new tanks were given 15 years ago by the previous government  and detailed project reports were prepared too.
The officials said that the proposals for the Mission Kakatiya-3 would be received by the end of this month, sanctions will be given in mid-December and the works will be grounded in January.
