In 1925, the enterprising Raja Joginder Sen of Mandi created an elaborate hydel power scheme near the village of Sukrahatti-with was then renamed Joginder nagar (1220 m) after him. After tunnelling and piping the water over several kilo-meters from the river Uhl to Joginder nagar, the Shanan power house was built by a team of engineers headed by Col. Battye. Later, the HP State Electricity Board added another set of turbines at nearby Bassi.
