Cauvery panel meet on Sept 28

The Centre has convened the meeting of Cauvery Supervisory Committee on September 28 here to review the position of storage levels in reservoirs in Cauvery basin.

Union Water Resources Secretary Shashi Shekhar will chair the meeting and notices have been sent to all Cauvery basin states-Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala chief secretaries to attend the meeting.

The meeting will also discuss the Tamil Nadu’s demand of release of water immediately as per the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) award.

Tamil Nadu Chief Secretary K Gnanadesikan had written to Shashi Shekhar asking him to advise Karnataka to immediately make good the shortfall of 38.516 tmc ft of water at Billigundulu as on September 13, 2015. However, Karnataka Water Resources Minister M B Patil said the State had already released 64 tmcft of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu and at present, there was no water in Krishnarajasagar (KRS) reservoir at all.
