Supreme Court to examine Centre's Cauvery management scheme today

In February, the court had asked the Centre to set up a Cauvery Water Management Board by March 29, and later extended the deadline to May 3.

Besides, the State government has resolved to stick to its demand for naming the body to ensure the implementation of the final award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal as the Cauvery Management Board instead of naming it as authority or by any other name as suggested in the draft scheme.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra would examine the scheme to ensure smooth water distribution among the four southern riparian states.

Karnataka today informed the Supreme Court that it would support the Centre's Cauvery Draft Action Plan, barring a few clauses. "I am requesting for adjournment till the first week of July as I do not have the assistance and instruction from the council of ministers of Karnataka", Divan said. The court scheduled the next hearing for Thursday, May 17, when it will consider the modified draft scheme.

On 14 May, Union Water Resources Secretary, Upendra Prasad Singh, submitted the Centre's Cauvery Draft Action Plan.

The Tamil Nadu government, meanwhile, objected to Centre's proposal to have the headquarters of the CMB in Bengaluru. The scheme outlined the process of allocating the share of the waters of the Cauvery River to Tamil Nadu and Karnataka taking in view the court's February judgment. Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, cited Prime Minister Narendra Modi's unavailability due to Karnataka elections reason for the delay. In its verdict on February 16, the Supreme Court had reduced Tamil Nadu's share of water from the river Cauvery while Karnataka's part got a boost.
