ISLAMABAD (APP) - The Islamabad High Court (IHC) in its detailed verdict over NWFP governments plea against the Federal government over Suki Kinari Hydropower Project (SKHP) says that the Supreme Court (SC) has the original jurisdiction to settle disputes between governments. The single bench of Justice Mohammad Munir Peracha wrote in the verdict that certain relief sought by the province were outside the jurisdiction of Islamabad High Court and the Supreme Court (SC) has the exclusive jurisdiction in these matters. The NWFP government had maintained that Federal governments decision to construct the 655MW Suki Kinari Hydropower Project over Kunhar River in Mansehra was illegal and unconstitutional. The bench has accepted the provincial governments prayer for hearing of certain issues like determination of tariff by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra), restraining Nepra from notifying or implementing the electricity generation tariff, restraining Nepra from issuing an electricity generation licence in favour of Suki Kinari Hydropower Ltd and some others matters. The proposed dam site for Suki Kinari Hydropower Project is located on the Kunhar River, some 6 km upstream of village Kaghan. The proposed capacity of the project as per reconnaissance data is 655 MW with energy generation of about 2750 GW. A 17 km long headrace tunnel takes water from the reservoir to an underground powerhouse to be located near the village Paras. The project can be connected to national grid at Mansehra / Garhi Habibullah / Abbotabad 220 KV grid stations.
