    If I understand your question correctly, you’re asking about problems involving hydroelectric power in the Indian Himalayas.  One issue that has come up recently is a dispute between India and Pakistan over a proposed hydroelectric dam.  Indian officials want to build the project along the Kishanganga River in Kashmir, but it would violate a water treaty that was signed in 1960 granting water from the river to Pakistan.  The plan would divert water from the river to generate 330 megawatts for use in India.  India has restricted access for hydropower and agricultural use of the water, but is not permitted to retain or redirect the water.  This plan for the hydropower project would violate these restrictions, and it is being challenged as such by Pakistan, which wants to retain the river water because of water scarcity issues.
