In a significant development regarding the contentious water sharing issue between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, the Supreme Court has declined to intervene in the Cauvery Water Management Authority’s recent order. The apex court has also issued a directive to the authority to convene meetings at regular intervals.
Supreme Court’s Decision
The Supreme Court’s decision comes as a crucial development in the ongoing Cauvery water dispute. The court has chosen not to interfere with the Cauvery Authority’s recent order, which has far-reaching implications for the water allocation between the two states.
Cauvery Water Management Authority’s Order
The Cauvery Water Management Authority, in its recent order, has mandated that Karnataka release 5,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu over the course of the next 15 days. This allocation decision is expected to have a significant impact on the water supply dynamics in both states.
Regular Meetings Ordered
Additionally, the Supreme Court has instructed the Cauvery Water Management Authority to convene meetings every 15 days. This directive emphasizes the need for continuous dialogue and monitoring in order to address the long-standing water-sharing issues effectively.
The Supreme Court’s refusal to interfere in the Cauvery Authority’s order and the call for regular meetings signal the importance of resolving the water sharing dispute in a systematic and ongoing manner. This decision is expected to have substantial consequences for the Cauvery basin region and its stakeholders.
