WAPDA

 

The Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) was created in 1958 as a semi autonomous body for the purpose of carrying out accelerated and unified development of water and power resources, which until then were being dealt with by the provisional Government. The charter of duties of WAPDA is to investigate, plan and execute schemes in the following fields:

  • Generation, transmission and distribution of power.
  • Irrigation, Water Supply and Drainage.
  • Prevention of water logging and reclamation of water logged and saline land.
  • Flood control.
  • Inland navigation.
  • Privatize or otherwise restructure any operation of the Authority except the Hydel Generating Power Stations and the National Transmission Grids.
