Srisailam reservoir on Monday recorded a water level of 83.73 TMC, which is far less than the water level on the corresponding day last year.
A Telangana tourist official said governments of both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh had given permissions for the resumption of the service, which was launched in November 2017.
Expressing concern that inflows will come only after 10 months, KRMB said that ‘large quantities’ of water were depleted from the reservoir even when there was no requirement from the Sagar ayacut.
Other issues raised by Telangana Home Minister Mohd Mahmood Ali included the construction of Rajiv Gandhi Sangambanda Barrage.
