Cauvery verdict: SC reduces allocation to TN to 177 TMC

Bengaluru: In a big relief to Karnataka, the three-judge bench of the Supreme Court on Friday said that it will get an additional 14.75 tmcft water from the Cauvery river. In an attempt to amicably resolve the decades-old dispute over sharing of the river water, the SC ordered Karnataka to provide 177.2 tmcft water to Tamil Nadu instead of the 192 tmcft water it gave away earlier.

The apex court verdict implies that Karnataka will now get an additional 14.75 tmcft as compared to the previous 2007 order. ''Karnataka will now release 177.25 tmcft of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu from its inter-state Biligundlu dam,'' the apex court said in its order.

Tamil Nadu will now get 404.25 tmcft of Cauvery water instead of 419 tmcft allotted by 2007 tribunal and the award of 30 tmcft to Kerala and 7 tmcft to Puducherry will remain unchanged, the top court said.

''No deviance shall be shown by any state,'' the Supreme Court said while delivering the Cauvery verdict.
