Disputed water projects in IHK: WB-sponsored talks begin today
Top officials from Pakistan and India are all set to hold meetings on September 14-15 on disputed water projects in Held Kashmir in Washington DC under the umbrella of the World Bank which brokered the Indus Water Treaty (IWT) 1960.
India and Pakistan disagree on whether the technical design features of the two hydroelectric plants being constructed by India – Kishenganga (330 megawatts) and Ratle (850 megawatts) – contravene the Treaty. The plants are on a tributary of the Jhelum and the Chenab Rivers respectively.
