  • Draft scheme on Cauvery Management Board submitted to SC, Centre suggests…

The court reportedly said that it will not go into correctness of the scheme and rather confine itself to whether the scheme was in consonance with its direction to the Centre on February 16.

TN law minister C. V. Shanmugam told reporters outside the Supreme Court complex in Delhi that the state is happy that a situation has now been created-due to the consistent efforts of the Amma government for several years-for the farmers of TN to get their due share of Cauvery water.

Meanwhile, opposition leader and DMK working president MK Stalin said "expectations have gone up" in the state when the Centre would fully implement the draft management scheme.

It had modified the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) award of 2007 and made it clear that it would not extend the time for this on any grounds. The Union ministry suggested maintenance of accounts of domestic and industrial water consumption by four states - Karnataka, Tamil Madu, Kerala and Puducherry.

According to the draft scheme, the decision of the proposed board or "authority to be vested with the implementation of the judgment is binding on all the states". Thereafter, the scheme will need to be approved by the apex court.

The Centre has also reportedly stated that the headquarters of this yet-to-be-named authority will be in Bengaluru.

Palaniswamy's deputy O Panneerselvam said former chief ministers MG Ramachandran and J Jayalalithaa had struggled to secure Tamil Nadu's interests on the complex issue. Out of the 419 tmcft allocated to Tamil Nadu, 192 tmcft would be supplied by Karnataka. Asked whether the state government would accept Cauvery Water Regulation Committee (CWRC), Palaniswami said his government wouldn't compromise on anything less than the Cauvery Management Board.
