Comments / Issues:-

Irrigation system handed over to I&P Department Govt. of Baluchistan on 07.02.2008 alongwith office / residential accommodation, vehicles, office equipments and survey equipments etc.
Irrigation Department did not take over the dam due to the reasons that (a) WAPDA is responsible for O&M of dam as per approved PC-I and (b) Additional Spillway should be constructed to restrict the back flow up to 264ft El, so that the losses to the upstream riparian can be minimized.
