About Baglihar Dam

The Baglihar Dam is a project on the Chenab River in the Southern district of Doda. Falling under the Indian-administered state of Jammu and Kashmir. Talking about the controversial aspect of the Dam’s construction, in 1999 Pakistan claimed Baglihar hydro-electric dam project violated the Indus Valley Treaty. According to the treaty, India had exclusive control over three eastern rivers and Pakistan to three of the western ones. The Chenab River flows from Kashmir to Pakistan. India can build this dam since it is situated on part of Kashmir it administers. However, Pakistan raised the issue that construction of the dam will impede water flow from the Chenab River, and will result in decreased water supply and agricultural loss for people. After discussions, involvement of World Bank, amendments in the design and parameters of the dam, the issue was finally resolved in June 2010. The ones with an interest in the mechanics, this is your place to visit. Learn about difficulties involved in construction, logistics adopted to run the dam, de-silting process, etc. For the not-so-interested-in-science- don’t worry the view of the dam and the surrounding scenery won’t let you get bored.

Historical Context: This hydro-electricities project on the Chenab river was started in 1960,but the project was passed in 1996 and the construction was started in 1999.
