Water shortage: IRSA cuts share of Sindh, Punjab

Observer Report

The Indus River System Authority has cut down the water share of Sindh and Punjab due to an “excessive” shortage of water in the country.

According to a statement released by IRSA, after the reduction in water share, Punjab is getting 83,000 cusecs of water, while Sindh is being provided 74,000 cusecs of water.

The decision was taken in a meeting chaired by the IRSA chairman to review water distribution among provinces.

Due to prevailing limited storage available in reservoirs and tumbling river inflows it was inevitable to apply cut on provincial shares, the water body said in a statement.

The Irsa spokesperson in a statement has expressed hope that the water situation in rivers would improve in the next 48/72 hours.
