Agriculture is the largest sector of Pakistan's economy and accounts for about 60 percent of export earnings. As much as 68 percent of the rural population depends on agriculture, a sector that employs over 46 percent of the labour force.

The Kalabagh Dam has a maximum retention level of 915.00. which is the Kabul river bed level near A kora. about 12km downstream of Nowshera. The fear that Nowshera would be drowned is therefore, baseless. The drains from Mardan and Swabi fall into Kabul River near Nowshera, upstream of the retention level and would not be affected. There are differents objection made by different section of people against the construction of Kalabagh Dam.

We don't think that any of this is entirely true. Like others, they know that the increasing demand for water and power (electricity) in Pakistan in me next 10 to 15 years cannot be met without augmcuii.ig the existing capacity. Does anyone know what the range of demand for water and power might be in 10 to 15 years from now? What are the estimates, if they exist, for the country and the provinces?

The opposition to Kalabagh Darn seems to rest on two planks. The differences on technical issues stand on first plank. These issues include (I) amount of water required downstream for farming and other uses, against intrusion by the sea, and mitigate silt accumulation; (ii) effects on water tables and salt accumulation; and (iii) loss of agricultural and urban land and displacement of people.

The controversy over water availability is at the heart of conflict over building new dams for upstream water storage Sindh's experts estimate that every four to five years, the yearly system flows are around 123.59 MAF. The annual average water availability from 1922-23 to 2005-06 has been 138 MAF.

WAPDA officials; however, estimate an unbelievable figure of 152 MAF as average annual flows.

The following factors must, therefore, be considered seriously to estimate average annual availability of water:

1. At present, Pakistan has no treaty with Afghanistan tor apportionment of water from Kabul River which contributes an average of 20.44 MAI to the Indus main river. Potential short term uses by Afghanistan are about eight MAF. Adjusting for these uses, the water availability from western rivers will become 130 instead of 138 MAF; and. in four out of five years 116 instead of 124 MAF. These uses b\ Afghanistan can increase in the long run. causing further reduction of water in the Indus basin.

With speedy construction of dams and barrages by India, the hypothetical contribution of eight MAF by the three eastern rivers (which were sold unilaterally by Punjab technocrats and dictatorial government of Field Marshall Ayub Khan in I960 while Sindh was under the bondage of One Unit), cannot be simply assumed as permanently available for any realistic projection.

3. The expectation that the on-going national programme of improvement of watercourses (NPIW) would save significant quantum of water for filling in 2-3 mega dams over the long term, is nothing but a myth as is evident from past experience of several on-farm water management projects. Being a crash programme, the NPIW has no inbuilt mechanism to ensure good quality works, proper O & M and sustainability through farmer participation.

4. The assumption that the provinces shall continue saving 12 MAF of allocated water annually is also a fallacy, because there is an increasing use of water in Punjab. Balochistan and NWFP (including above rim station utilization)

Sindhi technocrats have, therefore, been pleading that there is simply no surplus storable water available, if all requirements and commitments are duly-met WAPDA and other pro-dam lobbies have not been able to give reliable information on future average annual availability of water flows in the system.

Under the scenario of sufficient water availability in only one out of five years, there is no way that the two mega dams (Kala Bagh and Basha) costing about $25 billion or more could be rated as feasible in financial terms.

The proposed mega dams cannot stand the test of real economic feasibility when using sensitivity elements such as regional equity, lower riparian rights, welfare and distributive justice, food security, and opportunity cost of poverty, environmental degradation and quality of drinking water:

Controversy over construction of new dams is partially also a result of mistrust which is deep rooted in the past one and a half century of broken agreements and promises by Punjab.

Some glimpses of operation of existing reservoirs are highlighted hereunder to establish the case in point:

=> Dams should be filled when, the water is surplus. But Mangla dam is forcibly filled in April and May when there is shortage in Sindh and heavy requirement for Kharif crop.

=> After the Indus Water Treaty I960, allowing exclusive use of 33 MAP of eastern rivers to India instead of their historic utilization of only eight MAI', the withdrawals of Trimmu. Islam and Panj n ad barrages on Indus have been placed at the same priority with that of Guddu. Sukkur and Kotri resulting in drastic reduction of water at the lower stream barrages.

=> GTC is being constructed with a head discharge of 8.500 cusecs whereas maximum discharge allowed in Water Accord’s ten daily allocations by the CO!, in ypile of valid objections by Sindh province, is 5.900 cusecs only. 1 here is no guarantee that the GTC would, not be converted into a regular irrigation canal just like its predecessors the CJ and the TP link canals, and used for irrigation of Punjab fields even during shortage years.

$ The so-called Historic Use Formula of 1994, which was neither agreed by Sindh nor approved by the CCI. is belligerently being followed for'Indus water apportionment since then. Ironically, it is in vogue even after its annulment by the IRSA under directives of Chief Executive Secretariat. Downstream Kotri escapade to sea has been continuously denied, and apportioned by Punjab in some sears, despite protests by Sindh.

No flood canals and small dams have been constructed in Sindh province, despite pre-proposals for about a dozen such projects.

Under the circumstances, the mistrust between Sindh and Punjab has grown out of proportion. Every passing day the provoking statements of pro-dam lobbies are fanning this fire.

It appears now that a unilateral announcement ol constructing Kalabagh dam will be made shortly by the Prime Minister Mr Shaukat Aziz who. like his predecessors in power, desires to construct a mega project from the windfall dolls' reserves: whereas there are several high priority areas such as

social development, investment in vocational education and employment generation, cutting edge research and technology, use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes, and bar coalfield development which qualify for critical investment and which may have a high economic internal rate of return vis-a-vis the Kala Bag .

From the review of books and materials on Sindh Water Case one may easily conclude that there is no absolute rejection for the construction of a large carry over storage dam per se. Opposition to the two mega dams emanates from of five site non-availability of water to fill the new dams in four out of five years intended construction of irrigation canals by Punjab  on new dams low potential and high cost of power generation from proposed dams vis-a-vis exploitation of Thar coal reserves of Sindh indifference to opportunity cost and feasible alternate uses of huge investments even in the irrigation and drainage sector track of violation of water accords by Punjab and lack of legal and regulatory framework, to ensure judicial apportionment and sharing of Indus waters in the long run.

The Government. WAPDA and the pro-dam establishment of Punjab have done nothing concrete to guarantee that water apportionment shall be done judiciously and on a sustainable basis, and. that the losses, if any suffered by all Sindh stakeholders shall be duly compensated.

The unusually hurried process of decision making on upstream irrigation projects has also multiplied the doubts and unleashed active resistance in Sindh.

Mangla dam with raised walls Tarbella dam and construction of small feasible dams at different sites can easily handle the water storage needs of Pakistan up to year 2030 AD.

Assuming that completion of a mega irrigation project such as the KBD may require about 10 years. Pakistan has a comfortable margin of 15 years or so for confidence building measures (CBMs) to arrive at a consensus on Indus water sharing and storage.

With sincere efforts, skilled negotiation, credible guarantees tor future water sharing initiation of necessary irrigation and drainage projects in Sindh and appropriate compensation lor deltaic a f fee tees such a consensus can most certainly be managed during a much shorter time period.

Alongside the CBMs there is also a need to base all investment decision making on proper data base. The conflict over technicalities of water availability and appropriate carry oxer dam

sites can be managed through open exchange of information among all stakeholders. The current WAPDA policy of denial of factual information has been a major hurdle in attaining consensus on various irrigation and drainage projects.

Reliable data is expected from the on-going work of technical committee and downstream Kotri study. In addition there is a need to complete financial and real economic feasibility studies on other proposed dam projects sites.

Constitutional as well as Pakistan Army guarantees on nonconstruction of irrigation canals from the storage dams and adherence to mutually agreed water apportionment (invoking CC1 and/or thirty party mediation during violations by any party) may be required to arrive at a consensus among all four provinces.

On the international front it may be advisable to utilize the available time margin for striking favourable water agreements with India and Afghanistan. If need be the I960 Water Treaty with India max be re-negotiated through the World Bank invoking genuine needs of Sindh agriculture and environmental escapade to sea. I he big hurry of pro-dam lobbies is quite unnecessary and detri menial for provincial harmony.

The irresponsible and supra-constitutional proclamations of Punjab Water Council may magnify the manageable conflict to extraordinary proportions whereby the issues of apportionment of Indus waters and construction of storage dams below the Tarbela site might get referred to third partv international forums in the short run. Such a situation shall be against the national sovereignty, and all patriotic elements must by to avoid it by accommodating the genuine viewpoint of each other.

Apart from the above discussion, the important point is that a process of genuine consultation lake place to allow a consensus to emerge through give and lake. Il seems to us that there are genuine differences on the issue of the Kalabagh Dam that need to be resolved through dialogues in an environment of mutual respect and conducive to creating trust. It wouldn’t be prudent, given the nature and state of the discord, to unilaterally and precipitously decide to go ahead with the project as is being widelv reported in the press on behalf of the powers-that-be. Too main similar mistakes have been made in the past and their consequences keep haunting the federation. Why add one more to the litany'?

Don't overwrite or cut words, be breif and realistic in your answers.

It goes without saying that taking the CSS Exam is an extremely arduous task. Given all the difficulties the candidates face, they might wonder why they are further grilled through psychological assessment. But, conducting psychological assessment of the would-be officers seems imperative because the civil servants should possess the talent, skills and aptitude befitting to their job, as they have to work for the betterment of the society.


Psychological assessment is the name given to a process of evaluating and assessing an individual. The psychologists integrate information collected from multiple sources such as tests of personality, ability, intelligence, interests and attitude. The findings revealed from these tests are further supported and confirmed by relating them to background information, behavioural observation and one-to-one interview with the psychologists.


Psychological tests for recruitment can be divided into two main categories: Ability Tests and Personality Tests.

1. Ability Tests

The ability tests measure intellectual and reasoning abilities of the candidates. These consist of multiple choice questions (MCQs) or short Q&A format. These limited time tests can be passed only if you are speedy as well as accurate in your answers. The different types of ability tests can be categorized as follows:

a. Abstract Ability: These tests attempt to assess the ability of the candidate in identifying the underlying logic of a pattern and then determine the solution.

b. Verbal Ability: This test purports to measure understanding and comprehension skills of the candidate. It is a measure of how well you understand analogies.


a) Track : Athlete
b) Ant : Bug
c) Fast : Hunger
d) Hook : Fish

c. Numerical Ability: This test is used to assess your knowledge of basic arithmetic, number series, and simple mathematics.

2. Personality Tests

It is usually said that personality tests do not have any right or wrong answers. This is but only half true. No doubt you will not be given scores on the test but what you say reflects a lot about the personality you possess — your confidence, decision-making skills, leadership abilities, etc., will be assessed through personality tests. These can also be classified into two types:

a. Non-projective Personality Tests: In these tests, the candidates are required to respond in true and false to a series of statements relating to their feelings, thoughts, emotions and behaviour in a variety of situations.


Are you slow at making friendships with people?
Do you think there are more nice people than fools in the world?
Do you ever make a promise you know you won't be able to keep?

b. Projective Personality Tests: The projective tests included in CSS exam usually include story writing and completion of sentences.

i. Story Writing: The candidates may either be given pictures to write a story on or may be asked to complete a story. While taking this test, candidates should keep certain things in mind. Firstly, the stories should have a proper beginning as well as ending. The stories should be given a title and the candidates should cover such issues as what is happening in the picture, what led to the scene in the picture, what are the thoughts and feelings of the characters and what will be the outcome.

ii. Completion of Sentences: The candidates may be asked to complete sentences by writing the very first thing that comes into their mind. They may also be given words to make sentences with. This test is timed so that the candidates do not try to fake good in the test.

  • Te best part…..
  • At bedtime…..
  • My mother…..
  • Sports are…..
  • Girls are….


The candidates may be asked to write an autobiography in which they are expected to write as to who they are and what they aspire to be. The candidate should provide details regarding his/her name, date of birth, place of birth, childhood experiences, educational background, occupational history, social history (relations with family, friends and colleagues), why they decided to go for CSS, what is their first preference and what qualities do they possess that would help them in doing justice to their Service.

Questions Relating to the Candidate

In this part, the candidates may be asked several questions relating to their personality, experiences, relations with others, interests and attitudes. The purpose of administering this test is to get a better understanding of the candidate. These questions are asked to know how well you can assess yourself. Do not hesitate in writing your weaknesses, if asked. A person who knows his strengths and weaknesses is in a better position to utilize his strengths when need be and overcome his short comings.
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
What are your achievements?
Write memories of your childhood?
Any decision that you took that went against your expectation?

How to Prepare?

Making yourself familiar with the different types of tests, their format and the way questions are asked is the first step to prepare for psychological assessment.

1. Practice online tests. This will not only give you a fair idea of what to expect on the day of psychological assessment but will improve your speed and accuracy.

2. Candidates who are not in touch with mathematics are recommended to get back to the basics of arithmetic.

3. Try to solve questions related to percentage and ratio and practice number sequences.

4. Try to increase your vocabulary so that tests assessing your analogical reasoning do not pose problems for you.

On the Test Day

1. Sleep and rest properly before the important day.

2. Do not skip your breakfast. This is the worst thing you can do to yourself.

3. Avoid taking any medicine that may make you feel drowsy.

4. Take with you everything that you might need — pencil, sharpener and eraser particularly.

5. Reach the examination centre well before time to avoid any inconvenience.

6. Wear a watch. Do not depend on mobile phones to keep a track of time.

7. Don't mind if the psychologist appears to be cold and unfriendly. They are supposed to be like that.

8. Listen to the instructions carefully. Do not proceed with a test unless you have fully understood the instructions.

9. Do not try to cheat as it would be of no use because candidates sitting near to you may not be having the same booklet as you.

10. Do not let anxiety overpower you. Keep calm. In case of anxiety, do deep breathing.

Group Discussion

The main purpose of group discussion for selection is to assess the abilities of the candidates to work as a team. It's very important for the candidates to understand that group discussion unlike debate is a cooperative group process. Through group discussions, psychologists evaluate your knowledge, communication skills, leadership abilities and interpersonal style.

How to Prepare

Make it clear in the very beginning what is required of you in a group discussion.

Prepare yourself to speak on various topics. The best possible way to equip yourself with knowledge is to go through your current affairs notes and read daily newspapers.

To stand out in group discussion, express your thoughts candidly and convincingly. This can be achieved by practicing alone and with your friends. While practicing alone, speak on some topic and record your voice. This will help you identify your flaws.

Increase your English and Urdu vocabulary. For this, it is important that you read the newspapers — both English and Urdu.

Needless to say, practice daily before the big day.

Dos of Group Discussion

Do initiate the discussion if you have solid knowledge about the topic.
Do maintain an eye contact with the speaker.
Do try to be an active listener.
Do be assertive but not aggressive.
Do avoid grammatical errors.
Do prove your point with reason.

Don'ts of Group Discussion

Don't talk too much; allow others to speak.
Don't interrupt anybody.
Don't drift away from the topic.
Don't use English words in Urdu discussion and vice versa.
Don't lose your temper in an attempt to equal scores.

Important Topics

America is justified in attacking Iran in order to control nuclear proliferation.
Joint family system is a matter of the past.
Should India be given MFN status?
Is there a need to make more provinces?

Command Task

In command task, the candidates are given a task which they have to perform in conditions that are as near to the work environment as possible. Command tasks are conducted to assess the teamwork and leadership abilities of the candidates.

How to Prepare?

Candidates must know the hierarchy and job description of each Service.
Read newspapers. The situations given in command tasks are usually based on real events. News reports can provide you with knowledge as to how such problems are to be dealt with.
Try to work out various command tasks and draw up strategies.
To nail command task, practice it alone and with your friends.

Exclusive Tips

  • Be confident
  • Read the command task carefully.
  • Make your own strategy. Don't depend on the suggestions of group members.
  • Try to finish the command task in the prescribed time limit.
  • Encourage others to participate but do not pinpoint somebody to give a suggestion.
  • Begin your command task by greeting the group.
  • Clearly explain the situation and seek suggestions from them.
  • In the end, tell the strategy plan that you have chalked out. It would be better if the strategies are mentioned in a systematic and organized way.


Gas is not being provided to the textile mills and the government is increasing the export of cotton. The millers are against this. Draw up a strategy.

To increase the literacy rate and to decrease the dropout ratio the government has asked not to take final exams of children from class 1 to 4. The teachers' union is against this move. You, being the Secretary for Education, chalk out a plan.

Interview with the Psychologists

In the end, the candidates are required to appear before the psychologists for a brief interview. It is more of a discussion with the psychologists. The purpose of the interview is to know more about you and to clear ambiguity, if any, relating to the information that you provided in the psychological tests. The psychologists may ask questions related to you and your family, and also your educational and occupational history. They may also ask your opinion on various national and international affairs and some questions on your optional subjects. Once all the phases are complete, the psychologists will make a complete report of their opinion about you.
