The Cauvery Supervisory Committee has rejected Tamil Nadu's demand for its share of water saying that it is not feasible due to the deficit in inflows and very low storage level in the reservoirs in Karnataka.
The Committee meeting, chaired by Union Water Resources Secretary S K Sarkar here last evening, saw representatives of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu sparring over the water-sharing of the Cauvery river.
However, a meeting of the Committee scheduled for the first week of July would review the situation.
The meeting noted that availability of water was very small as compared to the average and even less than that of last year's storage.
It hoped the water availability would improve during the monsoon which was expected to be good.
It was noted that inflows in Karnataka was about 85 per cent deficit of the normal and the flow at Biligundulu is also 75.4 per cent deficit with respect to normal flows.
"Looking at the data as cited above such as the deficit in inflows and very low storages in the reservoir in the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, the request of Tamil Nadu for release of water by Karnataka was considered and found not feasible as of now," the meeting concluded.
While Tamil Nadu demanded a total of 63 thousand million cubic feet (tmc) of Cauvery water, Karnataka said it had no water to spare for the neighbouring state. ...
