•   Feasibility Study and Detailed Engineering Design completed in 2009.
•   The funding arrangement of the project is yet to be decided by the Government whether it will be funded through PSDP or ADB.
•   ADB desired updation of Project studies/documents as per ADB guideline by WAPDA and ownership for execution of Command Area Development                  component by Govt. of Balochistan.
•  In order to secure the financing of the Project, WAPDA updated ADB studies but financing through ADB could not proceed further due to non-response of        GoB regarding implementation of their own component (Command Area Development).
•  Irrigation Dept:, GoB has requested MoWR on 19.09.2018 for issuing instructions to WAPDA for handing over the documents of various Projects including        Naulong Dam for implementation at their end.
