is a proposed concrete-face rock-fill dam on the Marusadar River, a tributary of the Chenab River, in Kishtwar district of the Indian state
Indian state
of Jammu and Kashmir. The primary purpose of the dam is hydroelectric power generation. It will divert water to the south through a 10 km (6.2 mi) long headrace tunnel and into power station on the reservoir of the Dul Hasti Dam, on the Chenab.[1] In February 2014, the project was awarded to a consortium of domestic and foreign countries. It includes Patel Engineering, Bharat Heavy Electricals and Turkey's Limak Holding.[2] Pakistan, who relies on the Chenab downstream, views the dam as a violation of the Indus Water Treaty,[3] whereas India states it is as per Treaty Provisions.
