ISLAMABAD (Online) - On provinces demand the Irsa Advisory Committee (IAC) has decided to release water for the Kharif season as per set formula. IAC met here on Thursday. Irrigation secretaries of all the provinces and senior officers of Met office, Wapda and other departments attended the meeting. Chairman IRSA Rao Irshad said water supply to provinces could be curtailed from 25 to 48 per cent in next Rabbi season. The meeting reviewed the prevailing situation of the water availability and demand of the provinces. IRSA requested the provinces to cut short their demand. But, provinces wanted their share during the season and refused to slash their share. It was, therefore, decided that the water share to be given to the provinces up to Sept 30 would be kept intact and would be supplied for Kharif season as per their uota.
