Telangana and Maharashtra governments will be signing Memoranda of Understanding to construct five barrages across Godavari and Pen Ganga rivers. A high level meeting to sign the MoUs will be held in Mumbai this morning in which Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will take part. 
The two states have already expressed mutual consent to construct barrages at various points on these rivers to benefit farmers in both states. Of the five barrages, Maharashtra Government will take up construction of Rajapet and Penpahad barrages while Telangana will take up Chanak-Korata across Penganga River. 
Telangana will also construct Thammidihatti barrage across Pranahita a tributary to Godavari in Adilabad district and Medigadda barrage across Godavari in Karimnagar district. Maharastra government has conveyed its assent during several rounds of talks held earlier for Telangana to construct Tummidihatti Barrage at 148 meters height and Medigadda at about 102 meters. 
The two states will share irrigation water from Medigadda. On completion of all these projects, over 18 lakh acres will get irrigation facility in the two states. A high level team including Telangana irrigation minister Harish Rao and senior officials reached Mumbai and called on Maharashtra Governor Vidyasagar Rao who played a key role in resolving the inter-state dispute over irrigation projects.
