Cauvery Verdict: Apex Court Reduces Tamil Nadu's Share

The Supreme Court has reduced Tamil Nadu's allocation of Cauvery water from Karnataka from 192 tmc to 177.25 tmc. Tamil Nadu will have to now bank on 10 tmc groundwater available with it. The court said the tribunal did not consider the growing needs of Bengaluru and had thought the city could make do with its 60 per cent groundwater supply. But groundwater has dried up with the burgeoning population of the city. Thus, the court allocated 4.75 tmc Cauvery water to Bengaluru, even though the city is located outside the Cauvery basin. The court said that subject to the formulation of a scheme, the water allocation arrangement should stand unchanged for the next 15 years. The court upheld the award of 30 tmc water to Kerala and allowed Puducherry's request to grow a second crop.
