Karnataka to Appeal Cauvery Water Regulation Committee’s Direction to Release Water

Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar has announced that Karnataka will appeal against the Cauvery Water Regulation Committee (CWRC) recommendation to release river water to Tamil Nadu.

The CWRC has recommended that Karnataka release 3,000 cusecs of water at Biligundlu in Tamil Nadu from October 16 to October 31.

Shivakumar expressed concern about the drought situation and a power deficit in many parts of the state, leading to power cuts and difficulty for farmers operating pump sets.

He mentioned that efforts are being made to secure power supply from the central grid.

The issue of water release is expected to come before the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA), which will issue an order based on the CWRC’s recommendation.
