The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to file a report within six months time, regarding Government's plea, which stated that is polluting River water.

Beside this issue, the two states are having a tussle over the control of the water as well.

The Government earlier mentioned before the apex court that has yet to give 5.966 TMC of water to it.

On March 21, the court directed the Government to supply 2000 cusecs of water to every day.

An apex court bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra had earlier directed Karnataka to provide 200 cusecs of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu till its further order.

The top court had earlier in January this year dismissed the plea seeking compensation from both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu for the loss of property during the Cauvery water related dispute between both states.

Earlier on January 9, the Tamil Nadu Government sought a compensation of Rs. 2,480 crores from Karnataka for not releasing water to the state despite getting the Supreme Court directive to do so.
