He said that the dam is a significant public-interest initiative, and that due to the worsening water situation in Rawalpindi, construction of the dam has become unavoidable, and that more than 90 heavy machines are currently operating on the dam.
The project has been in the planning stages for quite some time, but in the last few months, both logistical and technological issues were addressed as quickly as possible.
He mentioned that the payment process for lands purchased for the Mahota Dam was in progress and that 80% of the land affected persons had received their payments within Rawalpindi’s jurisdiction, while 70% had received their payments in Chakwal’s jurisdiction.
The primary explanation for the delay in further compensation was the landowners’ lack of confidence in retrieving funds because some of the citizens involved were overseas.
