town, south-central Sindh province, southeastern Pakistan, on the west bank of the Indus River. An important railway junction, Kotri is connected by bridge with Hyderabad on the opposite bank. Incorporated as a municipality in 1854, it has jute mills and factories that produce telephone and telegraph equipment. The Ghulām Muḥammad (Kotri) Barrage (1955), 4.5 miles (7 km) above Kotri, controls the Indus floods, generates hydroelectricity, and irrigates about 2.8 million acres (1.1 million hectares) in the region. Wheat, cotton, and rice are cultivated. The project also involved the formation of Kalri Lake (41 square miles [106 square km]) just north of Tatta town, providing fisheries and water for Karachi. The Kotri thermal-power station was commissioned in 1978. Pop. (1998 prelim.) 61,130.
