New Delhi: Union Ministry of Jal Shakti on Thursday notified the award of Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal, which was pronounced in August, 2018.

The notification comes as a result of Supreme court directives to the union ministry on February 20, 2020 asking them to publish the award and final decision of the Tribunal.

The top court was hearing interlocutory application filed by Karnataka for a direction of the Union of India to publish the award of Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal.

The tribunal in its order in August, 2018 had granted the demand of Karnataka for 1.5 tmc of water for in-basin consumptive use for drinking water and irrigation within the Mahadayi river basin, along with evaporation losses from the reservoir through proposed Mahadayi Hydro-Electric Project.

Karnataka has also been permitted to divert 2.18 tmc of Mahadayi water at proposed Bhandura dam and 1.72 tmc  at proposed Kalasa dam.

The tribunal has also permitted Maharashtra dam 0.56 tmc of water for Virdi irrigation project which shall include all consumptive uses including reservoir losses, subject to the condition that Maharashtra shall revise the project features and prepare a modified detailed project report to utilize maximum 0.56 tmc of water for various purposes within the basin.

The tribunal also permitted Maharashtra to use a total 0.77 tmc of water in respect of four proposed projects – 0.16 tmc for Virdi B minor irrigation project, 0.32 tmc for Morachi Rai minor irrigation project, 0.27 tmc for Dhangarwadi Minor irrigation project and 0.02 tmc for Ambadgao Minor irrigation project.

The notification reads that the central government shall constitute an authority called ‘Mahadayi Water Management Authority’ to implement the report and final decision of Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal.
