Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Palaniswami on Saturday asserted that the central government has to set up the Cauvery Management Board and Caurvery Water Regulatory Committee in line with the apex court's order.
The Supreme Court has reduced Tamil Nadu's share in the Cauvery water to 177.25 thousand million cubic feet (TMC), down from 192 TMC allocated by a tribunal in 2007.
He said the Supreme Court in its February 16 order has clearly said a scheme has to be drawn up to implement the final award and other orders of Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal given on February 5, 2007.
He also said the Supreme Court, in its February 16 order, while changing the share of Caurvery water between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, has clearly said there is no change in the award given by the Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal.
