COMMAND AREA DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY,  TUNGABHADRA PROJECT, MUNIRABAD

The Tungabhadra Project was started during the year 1945 as a joint venture by the then Governments of Madras and Hydrabad. At the time of state reorganization this project came out to Karnataka State. The Tungabhadra Project is built across Tungabhadra River near Mallapur village about 5 KM from Hospet town. The name Tungabhadra is derived from twin Rivers Tunga and Bhadra originate in Varaha Parvatha in Western Ghats and joins at Kudali village in Shimoga District. The Tungabhadra River flows along the mutual boundary of Bellary and Raichur Districts and joins the river Krishna near Kurnool in Andhra Pradesh.

 To reduce the gap between the potential created and potential utilized and to irrigate more land with minimum water and to increase agriculture production, Command Area Development Authority is formed for Tungabhadra Project under the provision of Karnataka Command Areas Development Act 1980. The Command Areas Development Authority Tungabhadra Project has come into existence on 12.11.1979.
