Centre approves Rs 6,000 cr for Ujh Multi-Purpose Project

The Central government has approved a nearly Rs 6,000 crore multi-purpose project to provide uninterrupted water for irrigation to farmers in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district and to produce power.


The work for the Ujh Multi-Purpose Project will start immediately and an appropriate mechanism will be developed to utilise the surplus water on the Indian side itself. For this purpose, the administration of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir also offered to come forward with a suitable detailed project report (DPR).

The entire Kandi belt in Kathua and adjoining parts of Samba district will become fully irrigated, besides becoming irrigation and power surplus. The current estimated cost of the project is Rs 5,850 crore and expected to be completed in over six years.

The project will store around 781 million cu mtr of water of river Ujh, a tributary of river Ravi. After completion of the project, utilisation of waters of eastern rivers allotted to India as per the Indus Water Treaty would be enhanced by utilising the flow that presently goes across the border to Pakistan.

The first stage of the project has already been accepted by the Advisory Committee of the Jal Shakti Ministry and will now be presented to the Expenditure Finance Committee for firming up the funding arrangements.
