Cauvery: SC reserves order on Centre's draft scheme

Cauvery: SC reserves order on Centre's draft scheme

At the outset the CJI refused the plea of senior counsel Shyam Divan to defer the hearing till July, as the government formation in Karnataka is yet to take place.

The government should stop playing second fiddle to the Centre and assign senior advocates to represent Tamil Nadu in the Supreme Court.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud adjourned the matter till Thursday for further hearing on the Centre's scheme for implementation of the February 16 judgment of the apex court on the allocation of water. "We condemn it", said DMK President MK Stalin.

The scheme, once finalised, would deal with the issue of water share of the four states in different circumstances like normal and deficient water years in the Cauvery river basin.

Karnataka had raised objections to the draft scheme, saying it was not in "consonance" with the Supreme Court judgment.

However, the Centre failed to submit any scheme related to the distribution of Cauvery water within the given time.

In this petition Tamil Nadu is seeking to initiate contempt proceedings against the Centre for not constituting the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) within the stipulated period of six weeks.

The state government has also objected to Centre's proposal to have the headquarters of the Management board in Bengaluru.

The top court had modified the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) award of 2007 and made it clear that it will not be extending time for this on any ground. On February 16, the Supreme Court reduced the quantity of water Karnataka was asked to supply to Tamil Nadu by 14.75 tmc (thousand million cubic litres).
