A report on the Treaty by the International Water Management Institute (IWMI)-Tata Water Policy Programme has concluded that the Indus waters Treaty needs to be abrogated. “The treaty which was carried out in the best interests of the nation has, however, deprived J&K of using its own water resources and thereby severely affected development in the state. The treaty made Punjab prosperous by using the water of the eastern rivers for agriculture and power generation. This, however, put J&K behind by an estimated Rs 6,500 crore.
