In the Cauvery water dispute which involves Karnataka and Tamil Nadu state, today the Supreme Court will continue the hearing.
On July 11, the court commenced final hearing on the appeals filed by Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Kerala against the 2007 Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) final award.
The Bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra earlier had directed the Karnataka Government to provide 2000 cusecs of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu till its further order.
In January, the plea seeking compensation from both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu Governments for the loss of property during the Cauvery water related dispute between both the states was dismissed by the top court.
The Tamil Nadu Government on January 9 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.
