Introduction of WAPDA in Pakistan

In February 1958, the Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) was founded by an act of parliament for the integrated and rapid development and maintenance of the country’s water and power resources. This includes rehabilitating impacted land and regulating soil salinity and waterlogging in order to strengthen the country’s primarily agricultural economy.

According to the charter, which was amended in March 1959 to transfer existing power departments from federating units to it, WAPDA has been tasked with investigating, planning, and implementing projects and schemes for:

• Electricity generation, transmission, and distribution

• Irrigation, Water Supply, and Drainage (Irrigation, Water Supply, and Drainage)

• Reclamation of saline land and prevention of waterlogging

• Flood Prevention and Control

• Navigation in the Inland Waters.

Later developments, such as the “Energy Policy 1994,” moved the establishment of thermal power generation projects to the private sector. Similarly, the utility portion of the Power Wing was corporatized into independent corporations as a result of the reorganization. This change from convergence to divergence resulted in the formation of 14 entities that operate in various zones. National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC), four Thermal Power Generation Companies (GENCOs), and nine Distribution Companies are the companies in question (DISCOs). As a result, these businesses now have the status of corporate public limited corporations under the residual Power Wing, and they are now in charge of large hydroelectric power projects and plans.

WAPDA Human Resources

The Authority is made up of a Chairman and three members who are in charge of the Water, Power, and Finance wings, respectively. Members direct the business of their different wings through General Managers, who ensure that operations are streamlined in their domains. WAPDA has grown its human resource as a reservoir of knowledge, competence, and skill during the previous 62 years of operations by gaining training and experience on completed projects and continuing involved in a variety of development activities. For designing, building, administering, and operating diverse projects, these comprise professionals, specialists, scientists, economists, administrators, accountants, and skilled laborers.

WAPDA Water Wing

Water Wing Member (Water) is in charge of the water wing, which is divided into North, Central, South, and Northern Areas, as well as project-specific zones like Mangla, Neelum Jhelum, Mohmand Dam, Diamer Basha Dam, and Dasu Hydropower Projects. In general, these zones include Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Sindh, and Balochistan, as well as Gilgit-Baltistan and AJ&K. The water wing’s activities include the construction of water storage dams, conveyance canals, hydropower project development, Salinity Control & Reclamation Projects (SCARPS), and water research. The effective and timely implementation of Water Wing Projects is the responsibility of Chief Engineers and Project Directors at all levels. GM Finance is in charge of this wing’s financial issues (Water). Other offices, in addition to project offices, include Hydro Resources Management (HRM), Technical Services, and others.

Hydro Resources Management (HRM) is in charge of water resource management across the country. Monitoring, collection, evaluation, and publication of hydro-meteorological data for planning, development, and operation of water resources projects; coordination with federal/provincial flood management and reservoir operation authorities; forecasting of water availability for water distribution among provinces; annual, periodic, and special inspections of water sector projects; evaluation of consultant proposals.

WAPDA Power Wing

After the de-bundling of WAPDA into various companies related to the business of Thermal Generation, Transmission, and Distribution, the WAPDA Power Wing is now responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Hydel Power Stations under the generation license granted by NEPRA in the name of General Manager (Hydel) Operation. The electricity generated by these Power Stations is transmitted to the NTDCL Grid System, and invoices are sent to CPPAG in accordance with the NEPRA Tariff.

To improve the reliability and life of power plants, rehabilitation/refurbishment of old Hydel Power Stations is also planned and implemented. WAPDA is also in charge of coordinating and monitoring the design, construction, and commissioning of future hydroelectric power plants and other electrical and mechanical equipment.

WAPDA Administrative & Staff College Islamabad, WAPDA Engineering Academy Faisalabad, and Hydel Training Centre Mangla additionally provide technical and managerial training to Power Wing staff for capacity building. Employees of ex-WAPDA entities (NTDCL/DISCOs/GENCOs), AJK Hydro Board, Gilgit Baltistan, and private sector power stations are also eligible for this benefit.

In all WAPDA formations, a distinct facility in the Power Wing is responsible for the purchase and disposal of unserviceable or surplus materials/items. All of Power Wing’s financial concerns are overseen by General Manager (Finance) Power, who reports to Member Power.

Wapda Finance

WAPDA’s financial functions are overseen by a Member (Finance), who is also the administrative head of WAPDA’s Audit, Accounts, Finance, and Costing Cadres.
The General Manager (HRD) is in charge of the company’s entire administration and services.

In addition to overseeing the Secretariat’s day-to-day operations, Secretary WAPDA compiles minutes of Authority meetings, keeps track of Authority decisions, gives directives, and coordinates among the three Wings, in addition to monitoring and implementing Authority decisions.

Wapda Authority Fund

The Authority Fund is made up of the following components:
• Proceeds from the sale of WAPDA Bonds • Loans and grants from the federal and provincial governments

• Loans secured by the Authority with general government sanctions

• Foreign aid and loans obtained from the IBRD, ADB, and other international lending institutions under terms and conditions that the government approves.

• Any additional funds received by the Authority
