A long standing grievance of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province over Net Hydropower Profit (NHP) has been effectively addressed through a backlog settlement of more than Rs75bn (being charged to consumers through the power tariff). Similarly, an agreement has been reached with Punjab for the payment of Rs82bn by Wapda, on account of NHP for the Ghazi Barotha Hydropower Project, due since 2005. This will raise consumer tariff by 33paisa per unit countrywide. Of this, Rs38bn would be settled upfront and the remaining Rs44bn would be paid in the next three fiscal years at a rate of about Rs14.5bn per year. Wapda will continue to pay Rs9.5bn to Punjab every year for the productive life of the project. Punjab would get Rs1.10 on each unit of electricity produced by the GBHP — the same rate paid to KP for Tarbela.

Two other stakeholders — Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir — however may not benefit equally despite being major sources of hydropower, because of constitutional reasons, but may be compensated on the basis of equity. Taking a leaf out of a draft policy for the development of mega hydropower projects, which is expected to be formally approved by the Council of Common Interest (CCI) in its coming meeting, the prime minister recently agreed, in principle, to divide the Diamer-Bhasha Multipurpose Project in to two.
