Cabinet changes stance on Kishanganga hydel power project

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Apr 18 (UNI) The Cabinet today decided to shift from its earlier stand of constructing a reservoir based to a run-off the river hydel power project for the much talked about Kishanganga Hydel Power Project over Indus river in Jammu and Kashmir.

Briefing newsmen, Science and Technology Minister Kapil Sibal said though the earlier project was envisaged way back in 1994 but it could not be implemented in view of certain objections raised by the Pakistan authorities as it violates section E of the Indus river water agreement between the two countries. Hence India has now decided to go in for the 330 Mega Watts (MW) run-off the river hydel power project as it is already covered under the section of the agreement and will not attract any objection from the Pakistan authorities.
