Earlier, a decision was made to recover excess water as India is working on a plan to divert water from Ujh, one of the main tributaries of the Ravi River that flows into Pakistan.
Gajendra Sing Shekawat of Prime Minister Jal Shakti said India is working hard to exercise its right to prevent excess water from flowing into Pakistan under the Pakistan Water Agreement. After nine years of negotiations, India and Pakistan signed the Indus Waters Treaty in 1960 and the World Bank. The treaty establishes a mechanism for bilateral cooperation and exchange of information on the use of the six rivers Bees, Ravi, Sutlej, Indus, Chenab and Geram.
The decision was made to collect surplus water as India is working on a plan to divert water from the Ujh River, one of the main tributaries of the Ravi River that flows into Pakistan. This was also strategically important for India, as controlling the flow of river water acted as a multiplier during the period of the invasion.
“In addition, the river flows from our territory to Pakistan. According to the Indus Waters Treaty, the river can be there. First, we must exercise our rights. We have the right to block the necessary amount of water. to irrigate the 20,000 hectares of land that we are studying in. We are researching that possibility, implementing it and planning it, ”Shekawat said in an interview.
India’s plan to maximize water use under the treaty is strategically important in the context of China’s development of the controversial China-Pakistan Economic Corridor in the region. NHPC recently created a joint venture called Ratle Hydro Shui Power Corp. Ltd to carry out strategic projects in Jammu and Kashmir.
