“Parties are at liberty to mention immediately after getting any order or directions from the Supreme Court,” the Tribunal added.
The Tribunal met on Thursday after a gap of several years. It had refused to hear the applications on grounds that it would be improper to take up applications when the SupremeCourt had admitted special leave petitions filed in this regard.
The final award of the Cauvery Waters Dispute Tribunal was notified in February 2013. The Tribunal, in a unanimous award in February 2007, had determined the total availability of water in the Cauvery basin at 740 thousand million cubic (TMC) feet at the Lower Coleroon Anicut site. In, what was then described as a balancing act, the Tribunal gave Tamil Nadu 419 TMC of water (as against the demand of 562 TMC); Karnataka 270 TMC (as against its demand of 465 TMC); Kerala 30 TMC and Puducherry 7 TMC. For environmental protection, it had reserved 10 TMC.
