Islamabad, Sep 22: The Pakistan Indus Commission delegation is set to raise objections over four hydro power projects set to be built in India in the disputed Kashmir region.
According to The Express Tribune, Pakistan will discuss its objections over the 850 MW Ratle on the Chenab River, 1000 MW Pakal Dul on the Marusaadar River, 120 MW Miyar, and 48 MW Lower Kalnai and hydro projects, proposed to be constructed by India in the Chenab basin.
Pakistan had already lodged a protest with India through the Indus Water Commission and the Foreign Office against the reduction in water flow in the River Chenab, the report said.
In June this year, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had laid the foundation stone for the Ratle project on Chenab river, the report added.
The five member Pakistani delegation will meet with their Indian counterparts under provisions of the 1960 Indus Water Treaty, the report further said.
Commissioners from both sides are required to meet at least once a year, alternately in India and Pakistan, according to the report. (ANI)
