Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — Nepal and India couln’t finalise the detailed project report (DPR) of the much-talked-about Pancheswar Multipurpose Project during the meeting of team of experts that was formed by the governing body of Pancheswar Development Authority (PDA), in New Delhi, as the Indian side pressed for preferential right in the water, adding that the water volume being availed in the Lower Sharada Barrage should not be changed.

The secretary-level technical committee meeting held Thursday in New Delhi ended inconclusively after Nepali representatives disagreed with the Indian representatives’ demand for distribution of water except that India has been using from Lower Sharada Barrage, according to the Nepali delegation.

The team of experts meeting of Nepal and India led by Madhusudan Adhikari, secretary of the Water and Energy Commission Secretariat and Narendra Kumar, chairman of the Central Water Commission of India, however, has finalised most of the technical aspects of the DPR, Spokesperson at the Ministry of Energy Dinesh Ghimire said.

The meeting has postponed, agreeing to sit for next round after the Nepali side refused the demand of Indian side for the use of water with preferential right.

As per the Mahakali Treaty, Nepal and India are supposed to have an equal share in water and hydropower.

During the meeting, the Indian members had proposed to get water even in rainy season even after the completion of the Pancheshwor Water Reservoir.

Though the consultant firm preparing the DPR has prepared its report with installation capacity of 5040 MW of the project, both sides have made same voice for firm power of 925 MW round the year.

Nepal would receive 462 MW out of the total 925 MW though Nepal would invest one third of the total investment.
