After the Independence, the necessity of constructing water resources and hydropower project were felt by the politicians of our country and many multi­purpose projects were conceived and executed. On December 23, 1949, the first prime Minister of Independent India, Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru laid a foundation stone at Dakpathar, 46 km from Dehradun, for construction of Yamuna Valley Hydroelectric Project Stage-I. But due to paucity of funds, the construction work could not be taken up immediately.

The construction on the Project was started in 1956 and again had to be stopped in 1958, because Koch Darn was proposed to be constructed on river Yarnuna in the upstream of Tajewala Head Works by State of Punjab and it was feared that the Yamuna Valley Hydroelectric Project Stage-I she come under the submergence. However, the investigations and surveys conducted by the Engineers of Irrigation Department revealed that due to poor geological conditions, it was not feasible to construct the proposed Koch Dam Project. Later, in 1960, Yamuna Organisation was established and the work on Yamuna Valley Hydroelectric Project Stage-I was restarted in 1961 and completed successfully in just 5 years.

After the successful construction of Yamuna Valley Hydroelectric Project Stage-I, Maneri Bhali Hydroelectric Scheme Stage-I was constructed successfully and commissioned in 1984.
