Regarding the ongoing water dispute between Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, the apex court said that Tamil Nadu should supply 404.25 Thousand million cubic (TMCTF) water from the river Kaveri.
The Supreme Court has increased the share of Karnataka’s water by reducing the share of water received by Tamil Nadu. The Supreme Court has allotted 270 TMCCT water to Karnataka, which implies that Karnataka gets 14 TMC water like never before previously.
Chief Justice Deepak Mishra, Justice AM Khanvilkar and Dew Chandrachud are hearing the case.
In 2007, the Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal decided that Tamil Nadu would get 419 TMCCT of water.
The Kaveri river water dispute is between Tamilnadu and Karnataka. Both states want to give each other less water. Continued from the time of British, this dispute was earlier between Madras President and Mysore Raj. There was an agreement between them in 1942, but after this controversy Kerala and Pondicherry were also involved.
