Singh gave a written reply in Rajya Sabha earlier stating that Pakistan’s foreign ministry made several statements on alleged violations of the Treaty by India. Pakistan alleged that the Treaty cannot be altered or revoked unilaterally.

Replying to that, Singh said that India always adhered to the principle of the Treaty completely. He added that India is expecting Pakistan to not interfere with the rights of India given by the treaty.

Singh said that the implementation of IWT is reviewed once in a while by the government. In the recent review, it has been decided that India will fully use the rights given to it by the treaty and Pakistan should not try to affect it. Indian government is constantly monitoring the situation in this matter.
