TN moves SC for full-time Chairman for Cauvery Authority

TN moves SC for full-time Chairman for Cauvery Authority

Tamil Nadu Government has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a full-time Chairperson for the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA).

The Authority has been formed following the final verdict of the Supreme Court. Currently, the Central Water Commission CWC chairperson is holding additional charge of the Authority as well.

What is the issue?

This comes in the wake of the CWC granting permission to Karnataka to proceed with the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the 66 TMC Mekedatu reservoir project across river Cauvery, upstream of Mettur dam in Tamil Nadu. Opposing the project as being detrimental to the interests of farmers in the delta region, the Tamil Nadu Assembly has passed a unanimous resolution, demanding the withdrawal of permission given to Karnataka.

Tamil Nadu has cited the apex court verdict in the Cauvery dispute which states that Karnataka could not impound water by constructing any dam without the consent of lower riparian state.
