After a year's gap, China has resumed sharing hydrological data on the Brahmaputra and Sutlej rivers with India, an official of the water resources ministry said. For the Brahmaputra river, data was shared by China from May 15, while it started sharing data for the Sutlej from June 1.
The move comes after the two sides held talks over the issue in March. Data will be shared twice daily until October. Last year, China stopped the exercise citing that the hydrological gathering sites were washed away due to floods. It also coincided with the 73-day Doklam stand-off that took place during the peak monsoon period.
