The Penganga River is also known as the Painganga River and is considered as the chief river of the Yavatmal district in the Maharashtra state in India. The river flows along the southeast boundaries of the district in a twisting, meandering course. It is acutely deep-rooted and difficult to be navigated. It originates in the Ajantha range and is a major tributary of the Wardha River, the other major river in the district.
The river is the best source of irrigation to the Washim and Yavatmal districts in Maharashtra. There are two dams being constructed on the river, namely Upper Painganga and Lower Painganga.
