The Diamer-Bhasha Dam in Gilgit Baltistan was inaugurated by Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani on 18 October 2011. Pakistan is hopeful of producing 4,500 megawatts of electricity from the dam. However, it is being built despite resistance by residents of the area and it is considered to be highly vulnerable to earthquakes. The Geological Survey of Pakistan Director General, Dr. Imran Ahmad Khan, has informed the Senate's Standing Committee on Petroleum and Natural Resources in Islamabad that Zone-4 where Diamer-Bhasha Dam is being constructed falls under a Seismic Zone.
