Lower Penganga Project is an Interstate Project between the states of Maharashtra and Telangana State on Penganga River, which is a tributary of river Godavari. The head works are located near Tadsaoli Village in Ghatanji taluk of Yavathmal District in Maharashtra State. It is proposed to utilize 37.55 TMC of water for Maharashtra and 5.12 TMC for Telangana State. The Link Canal which takes off at KM 11.910 from Left Bank Canal runs for a length of about 90Kms to create irrigation potential for about 19,232 Ha (47,520 Acres) in Tribal and backward areas in the 4 mandals, viz. Tamsi, Adilabad, Jainath and Bela covering 89 villages of Adilabad District.

The Lower Penganga project was proposed by the two States on river Penganga which flows along the inter-State border, touching Adilabad, with three barrages below the main dam. The first barrage was to come up at Rajapet with cost and water sharing by Maharashtra and Telangana in the ratio of 50:50 and the second at Chanaka in the ratio of 20:80 respectively. The third barrage at Pimparad was to be implemented in the ratio of 70:30.

Korata-Chanaka barrage, being constructed at a cost of 1,227 crore, is aimed to irrigate 50,000 acres in Adilabad assembly constituency. The Barrage is being constructed across Penganga River on the downstream of Lower Penganga Dam near Chanakha and Korata Village.
