What is the dispute?
The Supreme Court on September 22 refused to interfere with the Cauvery Water Management Authority’s (CWMA) order directing it to release 5,000 cusecs of water per day to Tamil Nadu by September 27.
After the setback, the Karnataka government refused to divulge its next plans and consulted legal experts.
According to a 2018 Supreme Court ruling, Karnataka is bound to release 123.14 TMC of water to Tamil Nadu between June and September. Specifically, Karnataka should release 45.95 TMC of water in August and 36.76 TMC in September in a typical monsoon season. However, this year, Karnataka has released only 40 tmc of water till September 23, citing a distressed state due to the water situation.
In August, Tamil Nadu approached the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA) to ensure normal water supply. The Cauvery Water Regulation Committee (CWRC), which acts as an advisory body under the CWMA, observed that as of early August, the Cauvery basin in Karnataka was deficient in rainfall by 26%. Also, it was noted that Karnataka released only 30.252 TMC of water from June 1 to August 28, which is considerably less than the usual 80.451 TMC in a standard year.
In response to these observations, the CWMA took action on August 12 by initially ordering the release of about 13 TMC of water at a rate of 12,000 cusecs (cubic feet per second) per day for a period of 15 days. This was in contrast to Tamil Nadu’s request for a release rate of 25,000 cusecs per day. Subsequently, the CWRC and CWMA reassessed the monsoon situation on 28 August and decided to reduce the release of water by Karnataka to 5,000 cusecs per day, while Tamil Nadu released 12,000 cusecs per day. Kiosk continued to explore the daily release rate.
Both Tamil Nadu and Karnataka filed appeals in the Supreme Court challenging the guidelines issued by the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA). However, on 21 September, the Supreme Court upheld the order to Karnataka to release 5000 cusecs of water by 26 September. In response to the verdict, the Karnataka government has vowed to comply with the Supreme Court’s directive by September 26, at which point it will reassess the current situation.
