(Video) Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) in Depth: Indo-Pak Water Treaty

Topic: Indo-Pak Water Treaty

Topic Description:

The Indus Water Treaty between India and Pakistan in 1960 has taken centrestage again.

In line with its plan to fully use its share of water without violating the long standing treaty, India has started work to re-channel the water into Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan instead of letting it flow unused to Pakistan.

Available data shows that India uses nearly 93-94 per cent of its share under the Indus Water Treaty. The rest is unutilised and flows to Pakistan. This is the water that the government is working on diverting to states for domestic use.
