Hyderabad-based, Megha Engineering and Infrastructures Limited, has developed the Pattiseema (Pattisam) Lift Irrigation scheme (PLIS), within a year, i.e. from March 30, 2015 to March 29, 2016.
The project is considered as a record, as it is completed in the stipulated time, whereas other irrigation projects had to be given several extensions.
PLIS, is the first ever project to be linked in India. The project has started its full-fledged functioning, from July 6, 2016.
Moreover, PLIS, was completed by Megha Engineering, without any budget enhancements.
The first pump, of PLIS, was commissioned on 18 September, 2015, in just 173 days.
The PLIS is one of the largest pump houses in Asia, with 24 pumping units.
The pumps deliver the water drawn from River Godavari at Pattiseems to Polavaram Irrigation Project.
The farmers in Krishna River Delta, are majorly benefited with this project.
