Cauvery basin states' meeting on March 9.
IANS Chennai Amidst a strong demand in Tamil Nadu for immediate formation of a Cauvery Water Management Board, the Centre has convened a meeting of top officials of the four basin states for consultations in Delhi on March 9 in this regard. Tamil Nadu Fisheries Minister D Jayakumar told reporters that the state government has received a communication from the Union Water Resources Ministry inviting the Chief Secretaries and Water Resources Secretaries of the four river basin states -- Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Puducherry -- for consultations on how to implement the recent Supreme Court verdict in the matter. In its verdict last month, the Supreme Court had reduced the water share for Tamil Nadu while raising it for Karnataka.
