Headquartered in Delhi, the CMA will be the sole body to implement the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal award as modified by the apex court. The Centre would have no say in it except for issuing administrative advisories to it.
The CMA will be assisted in the discharge of its functions by a Regulatory Committee located in Bengaluru.
On May 14, the Centre submitted in the Supreme Court the draft of the Cauvery management scheme, following which the court had said it will examine whether the scheme conformed to its February 16 judgment.
On May 3, the apex court had rapped the Centre for not framing the Cauvery management scheme for river-water sharing between four southern states.
