India Fully Halts Flow of Ravi Water Into Pakistan

In a recent development reported by India Today, India has redirected the previously allotted 1150 cusecs of water from Pakistan to benefit the Indian occupied region of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K). The reallocation is expected to support 32,000 hectares of land in the Kathua and Samba districts.

Under the guise of irrigation and hydro power generation, India is pursuing the Shahkandi barrage project, raising concerns about potential implications for water flow towards Pakistan. This move is viewed as part of India’s water agenda, diverting resources to benefit its regions while affecting downstream areas.

India has previously constructed various dams, including the Bhakra Dam on the Sutlej, Pong and Pandoh Dam on the Beas, and Thein (Ranjitsagar) on the Ravi, contributing to tensions over water resources in the region.
