Apex court asks CMC to address issues raised by TN and Karnataka

The Supreme Court asked the Cauvery Monitoring Committee (CMC) to examine all the issues b/w Tamil Nadu and Karnataka regarding Cauvery water sharing dispute b/w the two states. Karnataka has assured that it will comply with the CMC’s recommendations.


Why Karnataka had earlier refused to release water?

  • Earlier, Karnataka had refused to comply with the orders of Cauvery River Authority (CRA) (headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh) to release 9,000 cusecs of water daily from September 20, 2012 to October 15, 2012.
  • Karnataka has been arguing that is has been hit by the worst drought in 40 years and water in the reservoirs across the Cauvery are just enough to meet irrigation and drinking water needs till June 2013 when the four-month monsoon season starts.
