    World Bank, Pak teams to visit J&K projects

    Along with a Pakistan delegation expected early next week, India will also host a team of World Bank experts for talks on the hydroelectric power projects in J&K that Islamabad has objected to. The talks will happen under the provisions of the World Bank-backed 1960 Indus Waters Treaty which provides a framework for irrigation and hydropower development, allocating the western rivers (Indus, Jhelum, Chenab) to Pakistan and the eastern rivers (Ravi, Beas, Sutlej) to India.
