It will have an installed capacity of MW; its construction on the project began in and is expected to be complete in Both projects follow similar principle of design and operation i. See more Pakistan fears that the Kishanganga Project will divert a portion of the Kishanganga water flow which will reduce power generation at the Neelum-Jhelum Hydropower Plant. But this does not mean that water flow is not affected. In , Pakistan appealed to the International Court of Justice for resolution of the conflict under the provisions of the Indus Waters Treaty [1], saying that diversion violated provisions of the Indus Waters Treaty of [2]. The court has not only asked India to increase the environmental water flow downstream from the dam but has also ruled that all other subsequent projects cannot draw down the water level in projects below the dead storage level.

Pakistan opposes the construction of the Kishanganga megawatts and Ratle megawatts hydroelectric power plants being built by India in Jammu and Kashmir, the global lender said in a fact sheet issued yesterday. Noting that the two countries disagree over whether the technical design features of the two hydroelectric plants contravene the treaty, the World Bank said the IWT designates these two rivers as well as the Indus as the "Western Rivers" to which Pakistan has unrestricted use.

It noted that the talks on the technical issues of the IWT took place this week "in a spirit of goodwill and cooperation". The parties have agreed to continue discussions and reconvene in September in Washington DC, it said in a separate statement. In the lengthy fact sheet, the World Bank said Pakistan asked it to facilitate the setting up of a Court of Arbitration to look into its concerns about the designs of the two hydroelectric power projects.

On the other hand, India had asked for the appointment of a neutral expert to look into the issues, contending the concerns Pakistan raised were "technical" ones. Earlier, in a letter dated July 25, the World Bank had assured Indian Ambassador to the US Navtej Sarna its "continued neutrality and impartiality in helping the parties to find and amicable way forward. Pakistan had approached the World Bank last year, raising concerns over the designs of two hydroelectricity projects located in Jammu and Kashmir.

The international lender had in November initiated two simultaneous processes for appointing neutral expert and establishing of a court of arbitration to look into technical differences between the two countries in connection with the projects. The simultaneous processes, however, were halted after India objected to it. After that, representatives of the World Bank held talks with India and Pakistan to find a way out separately.

Neelum River

Kishenganga project Location of the Neelum—Jhelum and Kishanganga projects in Kashmir The westward flowing Jhelum River has two main tributaries, one being the Kishenganga River Neelum River in the north at a higher elevation and the other being the Jhelum river itself at a lower elevation. The two rivers originate in Kashmir and flow west into Pakistan-administered Azad Kashmir before joining together near Muzaffarabad. This situation presents the unique opportunity of diverting waters from the Kishenganga into Jhelum through a tunnel and use the consequent flows to generate power. Both India and Pakistan have explored the possibility and came up with respective projects: the Kishenganga project in Indian-administered Kashmir and the Neelum—Jhelum project in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. The tunnel is received by a surge chamber before sending water to the underground power house which contains 3 x MW Pelton turbine -generators. However, India is allowed "non-consumptive" uses of the water such as power generation. Under the treaty, India is obliged to inform Pakistan of its intent to build a project six months prior to construction and take into account any concerns raised by the latter.

Narendra Modi inaugurates Kishanganga hydropower project in Kashmir 2 min read. The development assumes significance given the strategic importance of the megawatt MW project on the river Kishanganga, a tributary of Jhelum. The Jhelum originates in India and flows into Pakistan, and according to the Indus Water Treaty, whoever builds the project first will have the first rights on the river water. Jammu and Kashmir will not only get free but also sufficient power, PM Modi said in a tweet. This project is ready to add a new dimension in the growth journey of Jammu and Kashmir, added Modi in another tweet. The National Democratic Alliance NDA government has stepped up efforts to develop the infrastructure architecture for the state which has witnessed an unprecedented cycle of violence in recent years.
