Shahtoot Dam

Shahtoot Dam is to be constructed by India on Kabul River as per the recently signed agreement with Afghanistan. Negotiations regarding this project began in 2016. This dam is expected to provide safe drinking water to 2 million residents of Kabul city. It would come upon the Maidan river tributary of Kabul river. This project is likely to attract criticism from Pakistan, which is accusing India of choking its water supply from Jammu and Kashmir and Afghanistan.
