According to irrigation experts, the Inchampalli project was conceived by Nizam rulers in 1806 in Mahadevpur mandal of Karimnagar district and it was decided to construct huge project across the river connecting two hillocks. On request from Nizam rulers, the French engineers had arrived at the spot and started the project work.

However, it was shelved following the outbreak of plague in 1869. No one recorded at what stage it was stopped. Recently Namasthe Telangana Chief Sub Editor Mallesh and other friends visited the actual site of Inchampalli Project. Engineers constructed huge structures to divert the main river and and also constructed a bund in the river. Here are the photos:
