History
A hydro power scheme near the village of Sukrahatti (present day Joginder Nagar) was planned by Raja Joginder Sen and Col. B. C. Batty in 1925. The work on this scheme started after the necessary infrastructure was transported through the narrow-gauge railway track especially laid from Pathankot up to Joginder Nagar. The plan remained incomplete following the death of Colonel Batty, who was heading this project. The HP State Electricity Board, later in 1960 decided to take this plan forward. Set of turbines were added at Bassi in 1970. The construction of third stage of this project started recently and is under progress.
