The Jhelum River basin drains the entire Kashmir valley and is susceptible to floods, surrounded Himalayan Mountain range. The trend analysis of Hydro-meteorological data is crucial for planning and management of various activities (agriculture, design of hydraulic structures) in the basin. The purpose of the present study is to analyze the trends in the annual maximum and annual average discharge, annual maximum, and annual average rainfall for the Jhelum River basin. The trend analysis was performed by using Mann-Kendall (M-K), Sen’s slope, and innovative trend analysis (ITA) at various Hydro-meteorological stations. The outcomes of trend analysis using the ITA test showed non-monotonic trends at various stations for different time series data and bring forth more significant data to analyze changes in Hydro-meteorological data. Moreover, the overall trend shows a significant decreasing trend in annual average rainfall and discharge, while annual maximum rainfall and discharge revealed a significant increasing trend via ITA. The trend analysis depicts changes in Hydro-meteorological data which would be useful for future management of water resources. Moreover, changes in the discharges in the Jhelum River are due to climatic change and anthropogenic activities in the basin.
