Punjab has proposed to give Himachal Pradesh its 7.19 per cent share of power from electricity projects of Bhakra Beas Management Board (BBMB) in phased manner as part of the settlement of an inter-state dispute over share in power projects, a senior official said today.
Himachal Pradesh has been demanding its share in electricity generated from BBMB power projects for long. In 2011, the Supreme Court had upheld the state's claim of 7.19 per cent share in BBMB power projects located in Himachal Pradesh's territory under the Punjab Reorganisation Act 1966.
"We have good relations all states but we are talking about our share. Some progress has been made in this direction...We are planning to raise the issue of our claim with the states of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan. We will raise our demand as per the SC directions. We will get this matter expedited," Thakur had told reporters here yesterday.
