Cauvery Supervisory Committee rejected Tamil Nadu’s demand for its Share of Water
The demand for its share of water by Tamil Nadu from the Cauvery Basin was rejected by the Cauvery Supervisory committee citing low storage level a reason.
The Cauvery Supervisory Committee on 12 June 2013 rejected the demand for its share of water by Tamil Nadu stating deficit inflows and low storage level in the reservoirs in Karnataka.
The supervisory committee met in the chairmanship of the Union Water Resources Secretary SK Das and representatives from both states, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu were also present in the meet. The committee noted that the water available was comparatively lesser than the average water.
