Singareni is a village located in Khammam district, Telangana, India. Coal reserves in the Telangana were first found at village Singareni. There is a railway line from village Singareni that meets Manuguru-Dornakal railway at Karepalli junction.

Singareni railway station was also called as Yellandu station that is one of the oldest railway stations in Telangana.

Actually colleries means a coal mine and all the infrastructure which is part of it, and singareni colleries turns out to mean a colleries which is located at singareni. So actually the name of this town was singareni in the erstwhile Hyderabad state and hence the SCCL company was named after it. However later after the Hyderabad state was merged in India the name of the town was changed to Yellandu. The Singareni Colleries railway station located in the town was completely neglected and left out without any development post merger of Hyderabad state in India.
