AMN / NEW DELHI

Centre has issued a drought advisory to Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu and asked them to use water judiciously as water storage in dams dropping to a critical level.

A member of the Central Water Commission S K Haldar said that the advisory was issued to Tamil Nadu today and similar cautionary letters were sent to other states late last week. The drought advisory is issued to states when the water level in reservoirs is 20 per cent less than the average of live water storage figures of the past 10 years.

Central Water Commission monitors water storage available in 91 major reservoirs across the country. According to the figures released on Thursday, the total water storage available is 22 per cent of total storage capacity of these reservoirs.
