Supreme Court directs Centre to submit draft Cauvery scheme on May 3



The Supreme Court today refused to grant time to Centre to file its draft scheme for the implementation of its judgment in the Cauvery Water dispute case and asked to file it by 3rd May.

Declining centre’s plea, the top court said there is no escaping this task.

The court said that it has considered the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal award and decided the water share for states, which has to be complied with.

The Apex court also directed competent authorities in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka to maintain peace in their states till the court finally approves the scheme for implementation of its judgment on Cauvery water distribution.

The apex court said that once the Centre devises a draft scheme, it will take the views of the state of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Puducherry and Kerala, before approving the scheme.

The SC was hearing the Centre’s plea seeking clarification on the February 16 verdict regarding setting up of a Cauvery management scheme in the decades-old river water sharing dispute. The Centre had sought time beyond May 12, citing Assembly elections in Karnataka next month.

The apex court, in its verdict, had asked the Centre to formulate a scheme to ensure compliance with its 465-page judgement on the decades-old Cauvery dispute.
