Shanan Hydropower Project UPSC NOTE


Shanan Hydropower Project

  • Power - 110 MW

  • It is situated at Jogindernagar in Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh.

  • The project utilizes the hydroelectric potential between Uhl river at Barot and Jogindernagar that are separated by a distance of 7.3 km across a mountain range.

  • British Engineer Colonel B.C. Batty and his team in collaboration with the then ruler of Joginder Nagar region, Raja Karan Sen, designed and created it.

Issues regarding ownership

  • The project was constructed following the execution of the lease agreement in 1925.

  • The Shanan Power house is currently under the control of Punjab State Electricity Board and whole of the revenue goes to Punjab government.

  • The 99-year lease given to Punjab by the then ruler of Mandi, Raja Joginder Singh Bahadur, would end on March 2, 2024.

  • It is to be handed over to the Himachal Pradesh Government in 2024 after the completion of a 99-year lease.

Himachal Pradesh arguments:

  • Himachal Pradesh wants the project handed over to the State on expiry of the lease period.

  • The Himachal government had decided not to renew or extend the lease period of the project, and intends to take over the project.

Punjab arguments:

  • The Punjab government, on the other hand, is in no mood to part with its prized project, and is prepared to take legal recourse to retain it.
