Description

This book deals with various political agreements, from time to time, which have been forced upon Punjab by the Central Government, with devastating effect. The author’s concept of water money is a first in the field. He has brilliantly connected the requirement of water with the socio-economic fabric of today’s Punjab.

The economic effect of the Satluj-Yamuna Link (SYL) has also been discussed, along with possible solutions to some the problems that require immediate attention. The book is well researched, precise and focused.

Appendices include extracts from the Indus Waters Treaty 1960 and various Government documents that place the problem of the sharing of rive water in the region in its proper perspective.
