But many of these were given to India namely, Kashmir , Bangladesh etc.Due to the unfair distribution the dispute of land the water dispute arose too great extent. Especially because of the distribution of Kashmir our head works were given to India namely, ferozpur and madhupur headworks.due to this a major water crisis broke down in Pakistan and deteriorated Pakistan- india relations drastically  (Riffat, 2016). Delhi AgreementIn 1948, after the partition of the sub-continent and the unjust division by Rad cliff. Tensions were arising between the two countries due to the Kashmir issue, Pakistan, in 1948 was a newly emerging state and was completely independent on its agricultural revenue for its national income. The basic component of Agriculture is water so water was the only source of income for Pakistan.In 1948, India stopped the water of rivers flowing to Pakistan.as Pakistan’s national income depended upon agriculture. The scarcity of water had drastic effects on an agriculture. The whole crop season was destroyed because of this problem. Pakistan’s economy was deteriorating every day and Pakistan was facing the major water crisis. In this hour of the crisis the main need of the hour was too restored a water supply as quickly as possible.Seeing this, the prime minister of Pakistan and that time which was Liaqat Ali khan sent an agent to India threatening them of war. Jawaharlal Nehru invited them for an agreement. On august 18, 1948 an agreement between the leader both India and Pakistan was signed in Karachi. This agreement purposed two things:• Restoration of water supply • Signiorage chargesRestoration of water supply India agreed to release Pakistan water but on the condition that Pakistan would not wage war at any cost against them. Pakistan agreed to this proposal although it had the powers to wage and win the war due to its powerful army. Signiorage chargesSigniorage charges paid by Pakistan to India as cost for the extra water needed by Pakistan. India offer Pakistan extra water on the cost of money. This proposal was also accepted from the Pakistan.                              The Delhi agreement was signed and accepted from both side but the problem had not been solved yet. Because of the delay by India side Indus water treaty In 1948, India after stopping Pakistan’s water took on the rivalry of Pakistan. Pakistan appealed first to India to release their water but after unsuccessful negotiations they appealed to the World Bank to resolve their issue under international surveillance. The head of the World Bank Eugene black proposed the Indus water treaty In 1960 and asked Pakistan to leave claim on its three rightful rivers and give them to India to restore peace.Pakistan, at first did not accept this but after further negotiations and offers for external aid Pakistani prime minister Ayub khan accepted the Indus water treaty. It was signed in Karachi on September 19th 1960 by Ayub khan and jawahar lal Nehru. According to this treaty Pakistan left its claim on three western rivers namely Ravi, bias and Sutlej. Pakistan in turn got three eastern rivers which were Chenab, Jhelum and Indus. (Bashir, 2015)According to the treaty India would give Pakistan money and the World Bank would give Pakistan one dam after every 10 years. This however, was not implied to after the span of 20 years, the dam’s mangla and tarbella were constructed with the aid of world bank but the third dam which was kalabagh dam has still not been constructed.  Provisions of the treatyUnder the Indus water treaty the following provisions were given:• Three eastern rivers were given to India • Three western rivers were given to Pakistan• An agreement were signed between World Bank, India and Pakistan. According to which one dam and money was to be given to Pakistan after every ten years.Partition of RiversAs a result on Indus Water Treaty 3 Eastern rivers (Ravi, Sutlej , Beas) were given to India and Pakistan got 3 Western rivers ( Chenab, Jhelum, Indus).River RaviRiver Ravi is one of the smallest mainstream canals if the river Indus it flows through 422 miles in Pakistan and is shared by both Pakistan and India but under the Indus water treaty it is now India’s right.

The temperature in the night is 18 degrees Celsius however in the day it is 35-degree Celsius. The maximum water level of the dam rises up to 737 ft. whereas the maximum water level in the area is 747 ft. the chamera dam is a very major dam of the region and fulfills almost all energy needs of the region. after the completion of Chamera Power Station Stage – II (3X100 MW) in the year 2003, the Chamera Dam has been renamed Chamera Power Station Stage – I. The third stage of the Ravi Basin Projects Chamera Stage – III (77X3 MW)is also completed and is under operation now. All the three stages of Chamera are owned by NHPC Limited a company listed on the National Stock Exchange of India (Code NHPC).
