Order of the Supreme Court of India regarding Cauvery river waters allocation, 05/09/2016
Order of the Supreme Court of India in the matter of State of Tamil Nadu Vs State of Karnataka & Others dated 05/08/2016 regarding Cauvery river water dispute. Mr. Naphade, learned senior counsel appearing for the State of Tamil Nadu contends that the State of Karnataka has not been complying with the directions given by the Tribunal in the final order and there has been flagrant violation of the same. According to Mr. Naphade, if the water is not released by the State of Karnataka, the 'samba' crops will be absolutely damaged, which will lead to an unacceptable plight to be faced by the farmers of the State of Tamil Nadu.
Supreme Court directs 15 cusecs of water per day be released at Biligundulu by the State of Karnataka for ten days and the State of Tamil Nadu is directed to release water proportionately to the Union Territory of Puducherry.
