Indian media sources indicate that the completion of the Shahpur Kandi barrage, which is situated on the boundary between the states of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and Indian Punjab, has stopped the flow of water from the Ravi River into Pakistan.

According to India Today, the area of Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) would now benefit from the 1150 cubic seconds of water that were previously allotted for Pakistan.

According to the research, 32,000 hectares of land in the districts of Samba and Kathua will profit from the diverted water. The Shahpur Kandi barrage project is almost done, despite a number of obstacles during the past thirty years.

According to accounts in the Indian media, India is the exclusive owner of the waters of the Ravi, Sutlej, and Beas rivers, while Pakistan is in charge of the Indus, Jhelum, and Chenab rivers, as per the 1960 Indus Water Treaty.

As per the reports, India can now fully utilize the water of the Ravi River when the Shahpur Kandi barrage is completed. This implies that Punjab and Jammu & Kashmir will now use the water that was previously going into Pakistan from the old Lakhanpur dam.

Many storage works, including the Bhakra Dam on the Sutlej, the Pong and Pandoh Dam on the Beas, and the Thein (Ranjitsagar) on the Ravi, have previously been built by India. Furthermore, initiatives such as the Indira Gandhi Nahar Project and the Beas-Sutlej link have made it possible for India to use almost all of the water from the eastern rivers—nearly 95% of them.

Approximately two million acre-feet of the Ravi River, which flows into Pakistan below Madhopur, remain unutilized, according to media reports. That being said, now that the Shahpur Kandi barrage has been finished, India can make good use of the Ravi River’s water resources.
