  • Historic Development In April 1948, India diverted the flow of the Ravi, Sutlej and Beas rivers, an act, which threatened irrigated cultivation in Pakistan. That same year, in an effort to mitigate the consequences of possible interference by India with the supplies of the canals feeding from those rivers, Pakistan embarked on a program of link canal construction to enable the transfer of water between rivers. Historic Development Until 1967, the entire irrigation system of Pakistan was fully dependent on unregulated flows of the Indus and its major tributaries. The agricultural yield was very low for a number of reasons, the most important being a lack of water during critical growing periods. Historic Development This problem stemmed from the seasonal variations in the river flow and the absence of storage reservoirs to conserve the vast amounts of surplus water during periods of high river discharge. Mangla Dam was the first development project undertaken to reduce the shortcoming and strengthen the irrigation system. The Mangla Dam
