Draft scheme on Cauvery Management Board submitted to SC, Centre suggests…

"Regulated release by Karnataka at the inter-state contact point located on common border of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu", the draft Cauvery Management scheme said. The stakeholders- Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Puducherry, Karnataka- were all given copies of the scheme's draft to examine and decide whether it was in keeping with the February 16 judgment of the Supreme Court. "The authority will advice to adopt efficient technology for water conservation and preservation", the scheme said. The nomenclature could be left to the riparian States to debate or, if the Supreme Court wishes, the Union Cabinet could clear the draft under Section 6A of the Inter State River Disputes Act. Thereafter, the scheme will need to be approved by the apex court.

The setting up of Cauvery Management Board (CMB) has been elusive ever since the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) gave its final award in 2007. "The scheme would undertake the work of the Water Dispute Tribunal". The scheme was the only relief in the judgment for the state, which reduced its water share from to 177.25 tmc ft from 192 tmc ft. It would have an "eminent engineer" as chairman, two full-time and two part-time members each to be appointed by the Centre (from the water resources and agriculture ministries) and four part-time members to be represented by the four states.
